Kellie Commons

Chief Progress Officer

Buckle up, Sazarinos- Kellie Commons is our Chief Progress Officer and is looking ahead with her eyes set on what’s next for Saz’s Hospitality Group today, tomorrow, and in the future. She’s all about strategic planning initiatives and turning any idea, big or small, that invests in our team into a reality. Kellie is invested in team development, training, leadership initiatives, and holding ourselves to high standards as we continue to provide #TheFinest service to our guests throughout southeast Wisconsin. Excuse us also as we fangirl over her being named one of this year’s Notable Women in HR!

Kellie fell in love with the hospitality industry when she was a young girl as she accompanied her mother to the PBX Room at the Marc Plaza, now known as the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. Over the years she has weaved in and out of the industry, and has landed at Saz’s with a deep love for the hospitality group. She loves how engaged the leadership team is and how Saz’s has been part of the fabric of Milwaukee’s moments for the past 45+ years. Pair that with the loyalty and longevity of the Saz’s team, and Kellie’s got a recipe for the perfect storm to keep reaching for new heights.

Born and bred as a Milwaukee gal, you’ll find Kellie picking up some sort of project around the city (she’s a proud member of Tempo Milwaukee’s Emerging Women Leaders) when she’s not busy cooking, reading from her irresponsibly-sized stack of library books, or training for her next marathon. She lives in Wauwatosa with her partner and teenage daughter and will always have a rescue dog with a wacky story bouncing around the house.
