President & CEO, Metro Atlanta Chamber

Katie Kirkpatrick has served as CEO and president of the 164-year-old Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) since June 2020, but has been influencing Atlanta’s policy and advocacy for 15 years. 

Previously MAC’s chief policy officer, Kirkpatrick served as the link between the metro Atlanta business community and local, state and national governments. She also galvanized the MAC public policy team’s priorities around business climate, talent development and education, infrastructure and community. As president and CEO, she led the adoption of a new framework for MAC, focusing on the three strategic imperatives of economy, talent and community.

Kirkpatrick, a registered professional engineer, started her career at Gold Kist as director of corporate environmental engineering. She joined MAC in 2007 as vice president for environmental affairs. An alumna of Leadership Atlanta, she contributes to causes such as the American Heart Association’s Heart of Atlanta Gala and Café Momentum’s internship program for justice-involved youth.

Kirkpatrick lives in Atlanta with her husband, Dow, and has two sons, one a student at the University of Georgia and the youngest at The Lovett School, where she can be found with her camera or working the concession stand at a baseball game.
