Kelly pilots his own plane and enjoys camping trips in his fifth wheel with his family. Having such hobbies as piloting and camping with a fifth wheel came naturally with his extensive work in the transportation industry for the past 30 years. Before he drove professionally he was a coast guard and still sails when he can. It does not bother him to travel on short notice across the United States.
Kelly founded the International Society of Recruiting and Retention Professionals, Co-Founded the three largest recruiting and retention conferences in North America and the Transportation Training and Development Institute at Kaskaskia College. He is Chairman of the Board for the Transportation Training and Development Institute, is on the Board of Directors for the Truckload Carriers Association, and is a member of the Recruitment and Retention Human Resource Committee for the TCA and ATA.
Because of his vast interest in the transportation industry, he has held many positions including Federal Law Enforcement Officer, Professional Driver, Driver Trainer and Recruiter, and Recruiting Manager. Using these experiences, Kelly founded Impact Solutions in January 1998 to help with industry needs.
Through his real world, solution-based consulting and training, Kelly has become one of the transportation industry’s most sought after speaker/trainers.
