The People of KELLY honor their founders at the 2018 Founders' Day Celebration

SPARKS, MD – Kelly & Associates Insurance Group (KELLY) takes one day out of the year to celebrate their founders, The Honorable Francis X. Kelly, Jr. and his wife, Janet Kelly. Each year, KELLY tries to plan the celebration as close as possible to Frank and Janet’s wedding anniversary date of August 17th. This year, the celebration landed on the day before, Thursday, August 16th.

KELLY was founded in the home of Frank and Janet in 1976 with the vision of bringing small businesses together through common industry trade or professional associations to form larger groups that could provide access to better rates and benefits. Frank and Janet’s four sons now oversee the company and its subsidiaries and divisions.

The company, now run by the oldest of their four sons, CEO, Frank Kelly III honors their humble beginning through a Founders’ Day Celebration every year. At this celebration, the Kelly’s bring together all of the People of KELLY who have made this company flourish for over 45 years. Today, Kelly & Associates Insurance Group is one of Maryland’s fastest growing privately held firms. It is the region’s leading health insurance broker/administrator with nearly 13,000 corporate clients.

For 2018, the Kelly’s celebrated Frank and Janet, as well as, the People of KELLY with a crab feast at their office in Sparks, Maryland. The crab feast allowed the People of KELLY to enjoy food, fellowship and fun with their colleagues.
