BALTIMORE, MD – On Thursday, September 27th, i95 Business hosted a “From Sports to Success” event that showcased former athletes and their road to success both athletically and professionally.
From Sports to Success featured VIP Business Elite Panelists such as Governor of Maryland, Robert Ehrlich, Jr., Baltimore Oriole, B.J. Surhoff, HEX Performance Founder and COO, Drew Westervelt, JPB Partners Managing Director, Mark Rohde, Sr., Equity Mortgage Lending CEO, Mark Greenberg and Kelly & Associates Insurance Group/KELLY Payroll’s very own CEO, Frank Kelly III.
Frank Kelly III was always a stand out athlete, having played football and lacrosse for Calvert Hall College High School and Cornell University. At Cornell, Frank was recognized as a Red Key Scholar Athlete. During his time there he captained the lacrosse team, won an Ivy League Championship and was selected All-Ivy League. Post collegiate, Frank played professional box lacrosse for the Baltimore Thunder; played and won numerous North American club championships; and coached many years of youth football and lacrosse at Calvert Hall and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA).
Frank believes that his work ethic, discipline and persistence in sports helped him not only succeed athletically but eventually, professionally as he holds his current position of CEO at Kelly & Associates Insurance Group/KELLY Payroll (KELLY). “My greatest business accomplishment is working with my parents and three brothers to help grow KELLY from 10 employees to nearly 500, serving many of the finest businesses in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region,” said Frank.
Frank was honored to be a part of the VIP Business Elite Panel at this year’s From Sports to Success event and wants to encourage young professionals to “show up, work hard, treat others how you want to be treated, and give at least ten percent of what you earn to charities serving people in need.”
