    Speaker Info

    DeVone Holt

    DeVone Holt is a multi-talented leader who combines nearly 30 years of experience as an institutional brand manager, culture creator, strategic communicator and people convenor.
    In 2019, Holt began working at Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, where he currently serves as the Chief External Affairs Officer for one of the nation’s highest performing, independently operated Goodwill organizations. At Goodwill, he is responsible for the nonprofit organization’s marketing, communications, public relations, fundraising and government affairs. He also oversees Kentucky’s very first high school for adults, which Goodwill is scheduled to open in the fall of 2022 after a successful multi-year legislative lobbying campaign led by Holt.

    Most notably, Holt is currently helping to lead Goodwill through the largest  development project in the organization’s nearly 100-year history. The Opportunity Campus the organization is building in Louisville’s most underserved community is a $100+ million investment that will turn a 20-acre inner-city brownfield location into a one-stop lifestyle enrichment destination that includes a full-service hospital and a 120,000 square-foot resource mall.

    Previously, DeVone Holt served as the National Director of Customer Engagement for ResCare Workforce Services and the Special Assistant to the Superintendent of Jefferson County Public Schools. In those roles, he functioned as the lead external affairs officer for both organizations and  introduced a collection of innovative solutions to help maintain their respective status as the nation’s largest workforce services provider and America’s 28th largest school district. His leadership efforts were recognized in a community study conducted by Leadership Louisville, which identified him as one of the city’s most “connected” citizens who has found success at “getting things done” as a “trusted leader.”

    As an economic development professional, his work helped create approximately $400 million in new business investments and more than 1,000 new jobs for inner-city residents. He produced these unprecedented results by managing the inner-city business expansion and attraction projects for the city of Louisville for seven years
    before founding the Urban Insight Agency, which served as a consulting firm that helped companies maximize their investments in urban markets.

    In 2003, his best-selling book “Hip-Hop Slop: The Impact of a Dysfunctional Culture” was published and led him to the lecture circuit. Since then, the book has become the subject of a national debate and has been deemed required-reading for college students around the country.

    For 10 years, DeVone Holt served as lead host, writer and producer of the “Saturday Morning Solutions” radio show in Louisville where he helped create one of the area’s largest and most loyal listening audiences by sharing strategies on how to improve urban communities. Holt lives in Louisville with his son Aaron.
