Born in Naples, Florida, Ken is a traveler, businessman, and humanitarian. Compassionately raised by two loving parents, Ken’s ability to search out fairness with a strong sense of organization and always looking for the potential good in any situation are his strengths.
Continuing the tradition in 1993 by taking over the family’s roofing business provided a venue for creative implementation of successful ideas. In 2004 and 2005 the Kelly Roofing family responded to their community’s needs during tough hurricane disaster times. In 2008 Energy Saving Solutions, a consulting and educational firm was created with the goal to help others understand the true meaning of “Going Green”.
As an industry leader, Kelly Roofing is currently ranked as one of America’s TOP 100 Roofing Contractors, a position they have held since 2003. An industry spokesman, contributing author and circuit speaker, Ken enjoys sharing and helping other business professionals in all sectors. As an Instrument rated Airplane and Helicopter pilot, Ken’s passion for life and dedication to excellence is exemplified through the rigors of aviation. Currently Southwest Florida’s Wing Commander of Angel Flight Southeast, Ken helps fly and coordinate missions for those in medical need including transplant, cancer and military veteran patients. Ken donates time to his community by sitting on various boards and commissions such as the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, Florida State Housing Authority, and Collier County Code Enforcement Board. Hope Contained, a non-profit Ken helped form, is dedicated to helping the poorest of the poor throughout the world by recycling and converting steel shipping containers into homes, creating villages and designing micro-farms in developing nations.
Ken is a single parent to Austin, but earns the title “Father” by passing on traits learned and further developed. The two are committed travel and volunteer partners, always on the prowl for new achievements. Ken lives his life to serve others through the implementation of “Kaizen”, the Japanese word for a life-long commitment to constant learning and improvement.
