We are pleased to announce that Kelly Bower has joined Bean Group as Director of Sales.
Kelly’s broad experience will be instrumental in providing strategic and operational guidance for the company as we position for rapid growth and meaningful innovation for our agents and our clients. His objective is to elevate careers and opportunities for our team while fostering an exceptional company culture.
Kelly is both an accomplished business leader and award-winning small business owner who strongly believes people are an organization’s most valuable asset.
He comes to us from Los Angeles’ InStride, where he led their corporate partnership effort, helping the CEO’s of the world’s largest brands such as Starbucks, Uber, and Adidas make career-boosting and life-changing investments in their people through debt-free access to education. Kelly’s passion for helping people succeed is evident onstage, in the boardroom, and in the retail environment directly, where his people-centric approach has helped propel his own business, Flight Coffee Dover, to both regional and national acclaim.
Prior to InStride, Kelly had a long executive-level career with IBM, where his team led digital eCommerce and marketing transformations in some of the largest retail and financial services organizations in North America – giving him a broad perspective on how companies can leverage both people and technology to achieve exceptional business results.
His love for real estate has persisted throughout his entire career – most recently as a licensed REALTOR®, and previously as a mortgage banker, and property investor and manager.
Throughout his career, he has spoken at numerous technology and marketing industry events, has guest-taught college-level integrated marketing, and serves on a number of boards in his community that align to his passion for people.
