The Illinois Landscape Contractors Association’s
Women’s Networking Group (WNG) proudly presents an evening and insights from Kathi Holst.

Kathi is an accomplished speaker and business owner.

Kathi has spent 30 years in the traffic safety industry as a contractor. Holst began working in traffic safety after graduating from Bradley in 1979 and received her certification as a CPA in 1980. Eight years later she founded ACCI, her own traffic safety company. Holst now serves as senior vice president of RoadSafe, a national provider of traffic control, pavement marking, and sign installation services. The company is located in Romeoville and operates in 35 states.

Holst is also a five-year breast cancer survivor and a top fundraiser in the annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago. Holst will touch on growing a business, leadership development, and the importance of having a Plan B. The talk is geared towards green industry women (and open-minded men) of any level.
