In each of these roles, Kelly has successfully led change and innovation to meet the needs of each organization.

Jeff Dekko, CEO of Wealth Enhancement Group said, “I’m honored to work closely with Kelly and I definitely understand why he was included on this list of Minnesota’s most elite business leaders. His role as a leader, his financial track record, and his strategic vision is an invaluable asset to Wealth Enhancement Group.

About the Selection Process

The Minnesota 500 began as a list of more than 7,000 executives across multiple industries in the state of Minnesota. After months of research and evaluation of existing databases, Greenspring Media narrowed the group to the top 500. Criteria for selection includes the impact each executive has had on their industry through current and past roles, the success of the organization under the executives’ leadership, awards or accolades in the executives’ professional or personal lives, community and philanthropic activities, position on other boards along with others. Nominees do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Minnesota 500.
