Kati Townsley – Executive Director, Carroll Technology & Innovation Council
A Westminster native who attended both Frostburg State University and Western Maryland College/ McDaniel College for undergraduate and graduate studies, Kati spent her previous professional life focused in the legal field before making her philanthropic passions a career choice and joining the Carroll Technology Council in January 2014. She brings exceptional interpersonal skills and administration, communication, and technology experience to the CTIC and is responsible for the administration and operations of the organization.
Kati works diligently to execute the Board of Directors’ work plan to fulfill the mission of the CTC to provide innovation, technology leadership, information, and resources to develop members’ businesses, build strong community partnerships, and advance technology in Carroll County, MD simply by “Moving Carroll Foward!”
She serves as the Vice-Chair of Carroll County’s Long Range Planning Committee and was previously the representative of the technology cluster. She serves as a member of the Carroll County Broadband Advisory Council, the Carroll County Workforce Development Board, and the Board of Directors of the Carroll County Veterans Independence Project. Additionally, she is a regular adviser to students, entrepreneurs, and BERC clients, and works closely with the Carroll County Department of Economic Development and Maryland Department of Commerce. She is a graduate of Leadership Carroll, Class of 2016.
Kati resides in Carroll County where she is a phenomenal connector of people, ideas, and things- and is a wonderful ambassador of all things Carroll County! In her “spare” time, she serves as the Chair of the Board, Public Information Officer, and Vice President of the Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Company and serves as the Communications Vice President of the Chesapeake Alumnae Association of Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity. She is the co-founder of Lost Mountain Group, a 501c3 nonprofit that pairs retired military working dogs as canine companions for US Veterans in the Mid-Atlantic region at no cost.
