Kelli Thompson of Integrity International Trade Consulting LLC epitomizes how a partnership works between the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce and a new and thriving business.  Kelli’s business offers a unique service to educate companies on the laws and regulations related to importing textiles and other products from various countries.  As one of the country’s leading experts in the area of international trade and compliance, Kelli has traveled the world, lead US Government Textile Verification Teams and served as lead compliance trainer.  The launch of Integrity International Trade Consulting, LLC means that Kelli’s skills are now available to the private sector where businesses can benefit from her unique import and export experience and expertise.

Kelli joined the Chamber to expand business opportunities in the Charleston region. Shortly afterward, she learned of the Annual Meeting featuring Daymond John, investor on ABC’s Shark Tank. Motivated to seize opportunity, this ultimate Shark Tank fan requested an appointment with Daymond John. When the Charleston meeting fell through, Kelli traveled to Texas to meet Daymond! This is a story of perseverance which resulted in a successful and rewarding outcome.

When people ask what they can “get out of a Chamber Membership,” I explain that the Chamber provides opportunity, and it’s the energy that entrepreneurs and businesses put into their membership that determines how much ROI comes back. When Members push full throttle into their membership, like Kelli Thompson did, the ROI is enormous.

-Jeff Aysse, Membership Account Executive
