Growing up in Carthage, Missouri, Mike Kelly has always been ingrained with a passion for people. He earned a Business Degree with an emphasis in Marketing and Management from Missouri Southern State University and made a successful career in sales.
After working in the industry for nearly two decades, he pursued his dream of starting his own company. As President of Pearson-Kelly Technology, he has grown the company from a small startup to serving thousands of offices across the region.
Mike and his wife, Denise, have proudly raised their family with an entrepreneurial spirit. Chelsey Bode, Dr. Chase Kelly and Shailey Murphy all own businesses in our community and are leaders in their respected fields.
When Mike is not working, he enjoys his time with four grandchildren, outdoor sports, tennis, nature and being a member of James River Church and Sunrise Rotary Club of Springfield.
Chelsey may be the 2nd generation of Pearson-Kelly, but she started making her mark from the early days. During college, she learned the ropes at IKON Office Solutions. She double majored at Missouri State University and earned her BS in Merchandising and Marketing. In 2007, shortly after college, she joined the ranks of Pearson-Kelly as the 6th employee.
Chelsey has satisfied her drive and competitive nature by leading sales and other teams through many changes in the industry. In 2011 she was promoted to Vice President of Operations at Pearson-Kelly Technology and in 2016 became co-owner.
Chelsey and her husband Kraig, have two fabulous children, Ry and Hudson. When she’s not busy enjoying her family and growing the team at PKT, she gives to our community by volunteering her time as a board member of The Good Samaritan Boys Ranch and The Rotary Club of Springfield Southeast.
