Kelly shoulders some hefty responsibilities in his role as Director of Operations. He focuses on a wide variety of essential areas including project management, accounting, legal matters, and information systems. In addition to his array of responsibilities, Kelly –aka “K-Mac”– is known around the office for his love of reports, excitement for the latest trending tech gadgets, and leading morning stand-up meetings with the team.

Prior to Foundry, Kelly had over two decades of experience with Carter Machinery. He gained his experience within several different roles, starting out as an advertising intern, progressing to Marketing Manager, and eventually becoming Customer Experience Manager, before transitioning into his current title. With his determined drive and continued practice, it’s easy to see that Kelly knows how to get work done. Don’t let his work ethic fool you, however – Kelly isn’t all work and no play.

In his free time, Kelly enjoys hitting the open waters with friends and family on HokieCat III – his 22-foot, center-console fishing boat – loves dabbling in his workshop on assorted projects and is never one to turn down a good meal with a nice glass of wine. In addition, his attention-to-detail personality especially loves organizing– whether it’s in his shop, truck, or niece’s arts-and-crafts closet, K-Mac can make anything and everything look neat.
