Ken has been a life long outdoorsman. Hunting and fishing the Blue Ridge mountains from childhood, he started working at the Orvis retail store in downtown Roanoke, VA as a teen where he began his fly fishing career. Over the years he guided and fished throughout the southeast and mid-Atlantic States which culminated into a successful career in the outdoor industry.
Ken has worked for ASA leading and growing the fishing industry trade show, ICAST. He has served on several boards and committees for the fishing and trade show industry. His work has been recognized and awarded throughout the trade show industry.
“I am looking forward to working with familiar brands and names in the fly fishing industry all the while creating new relationships in the industry that I love. I have worked with AFFTA for nearly 15 years to help promote the sport of fly fishing and look forward to working even closer with the membership on continuing to grow the sport in a meaningful and successful way.”
Ken lives in Roswell, Georgia with his wife Margaret and their Boykin Spaniel, Chalmers.
