About Kellen

Kellen, a certified CPA, gained experience with a Big 4 Accounting firm in their audit practice, specifically focusing on manufacturing and technology industries. When his wife was accepted into her PhD program at UNC Chapel Hill, the two moved across the country into unfamiliar territory – neither of them had lived on the east coast before!

Coinciding with this move, Kellen left public accounting and went into private industry, primarily as a Controller. As a Vaco consultant, Kellen enjoys seeing the different challenges that are out there, best practices, common pitfalls, and more so that he can take his knowledge to future clients. When he’s not chasing his toddler around the house with his wife, he loves to squeeze in a round of golf!
