Career And Professional Highlights

Best Known As…

After college, Kelly Loeffler worked at Citi Bank as an Equity Research Associate in 1999 after which she moved to William Blair & Company to also work as an Equity Research Associate. Before moving to Intercontinental Exchange, Kelly worked at The Crossroads Group's investor relations department from 2001 to 2002. In 2002, Kelly Loeffler joined Intercontinental Exchange, a Fortune 500 firm in America that provides mortgage technology and other financial services in investor relations.
Two years later, Kelly married the firm's chief executive officer (CEO), Jeffrey Sprecher, after which she earned a promotion to become the senior vice president of investor relations and the corporate communications department of the firm. Loeffler held the position from 2002 to 2018. In 2018, Kelly Loeffler became the chief executive officer (CEO) of Bakkt, a subsidiary firm of Intercontinental Exchange, a position that she held for a year.
As a former basketball player in high school, and lover of the sport, Kelly Loeffler bought a small stake in the Atlanta Dreams of the WNBA (Women's National Basketball Association) in 2010. A year later, Kelly and Mary Brock bought the entire team from Kathy Betty. While Kelly was co-owner of the basketball team, she took an active role in the team's development. Loeffler planned and arranged all of her travel and time schedule to watch all the games of the team and to also meet with the head coach, Michael Cooper, to discuss and analyze the game with him. Kelly later sold her stake in the team due to a clash between her and the players in February 2021.
Kelly Loeffler is a politician of the Republican party in the United States. In 2014, she intended on seeking a nomination from the Republican party to be the party's senatorial candidate in the Georgia senatorial election but eventually left the race due to a pending acquisition that Intercontinental Exchange had with the New York Stock Exchange.
Years later, Kelly Loeffler was appointed to office as a United States senator by the governor of Georgia (also a member of the Republican party), Brian Kemp, on December 4, 2019 in accordance with Georgia law. Her appointment ensued after Senator Johnny Isakson resigned from office on August 28, 2019 due to health issues. Loeffler was appointed to fill Isakson's post in the Senate House and complete his unexpired term before the next regular statewide election in November 2020. The decision made by Governor Brian sparked tremendous anger from Georgia conservatives who supported Former President Donald Trump's choice, Doug Collins. The governor traveled to Washington to give explanations on why he chose Kelly over Trump's choice.
Kelly Loeffler became the second female to represent Georgia as the United States Senator on January 6, 2020, after Rebecca Latimer Felton. Kelly held the position for almost a year after the runoff election on January 5. While in office, Kelly was involved in the hearing of 229 bills in the senate-house of which she sponsored 42 and cosponsored 187.
The United States senator is a stalwart supporter and ally of Donald Trump and gave 100% support and loyalty to the former American president. Kelly Loeffler supports anti-abortion legislation and the anti-LGBTQ bill to the extent that she donated portions of her Senate salary to an anti-LGBTQ agency and anti-abortion agency. In September 2020, Loeffler introduced a bill that would bar women and girls involved in transgender from participating in women's and girls' sports to the senate floor. The bill emphasizes making a person's reproductive biology and genetics the sole criterion for determining the gender of anyone.
According to Georgia's election law, all candidates of a political party (regardless of any political party) interested in contesting for the scepter of authority must compete in a nonpartisan blanket primary. Kelly Loeffler was challenged by Doug Collins to represent the Republican party in the race for the senatorial seat, which Kelly won.
While Kelly was a co-owner of the Atlanta Dreams, she sent a public letter to the WNBA expressing disapproval of players wearing shirts with 'Black Lives Matter' and 'Say Her Name' printed on them in July 2020. In the letter, she expressed her objection to the Black Lives Matter movement and accused it of advocating for things like the abolishment of the police, emptying the prisons, destroying the nuclear family, and promoting violence and antisemitism. Kelly also claimed that the movement was based on Marxist principles and could destroy America.
This letter of hers led to WNBA players calling for the removal of her ownership stake in the Atlanta Dreams team. In August 2020, the entire Atlanta Dreams team, and several other teams, wore 'Vote Warnock' T-shirts as a way of showing support for Loeffler's closest rival in the senatorial race, Raphael Warnock of the Democratic party. This affected Kelly's political career as she did not only lose ownership of the team but also lost the election even after a run-off.
After the election in November 2020, none of the contestants won the election because none of the candidates met the criterion for winning (a candidate must receive 50% of the entire votes to be called a winner). As a result, a run-off was organized for the closest rivals, which were Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock. At the end of the runoff, Warnock won the election with a marginal victory over Loeffler.
In March 2020, Kelly Loeffler and her husband Jeffrey Sprecher were accused of selling stocks in companies vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic after the release of federal financial disclosure documents. Kelly denied all allegations revealing that the transaction was made by a third-party advisor, which she became aware of after the trade was done. After the investigations, the Senate Ethics Committee got involved in the case. That year, Loeffler and Sprecher had sold about $18.7 million of their stocks before the stock market crashed. The Senate Ethics Committee dismissed all complaints and allegations on June 16, 2020, adding that there was no evidence to prove those actions.
Kelly Loeffler is best known as a former American senator who represented Georgia between January 2020 and January 2021.

Charity Work

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Kelly Loeffler donated her senate salary to 10 non-profit organizations. She also donated a $1 million COVID-19 relief fund to the Phoebe Putney Health System.
