Ken discovered his true passion for kids and family marketing working on Willy Wonka Bars, Cracker Jack and Mattel Toys, where he was VP of Marketing. It was from his experience putting together some of the best ever promotional programs for Mattel with the likes of McDonalds, Kellogg’s, Duracell, General Foods and more that he decided to start his own custom premium marketing agency in 1983. Never wanting to be the biggest, but instead focused on being the best.
Ken’s been on numerous corporate and charity boards including Tween Brands (on NYSE formally Limited Too), Young President’s Organization then World President’s, Legatus Catholic President’s, Notre Dame Club in Orange County, and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Ken married his high school sweetheart, has three sons and seven grandchildren spread out from Washington DC to Northern California and locally. The family gets together lots of time in lots of places to do lots of different things. He’s still a kid a heart.
