Kelsey is a second-generation window covering professional with personal experience for nearly 20 years, both in the field as well as in franchise leadership. As the CEO of Bloomin' Blinds, Kelsey is passionate about the strategic growth and scaling of each franchise business and creating a culture of raving fans. Kelsey leads the corporate franchise team as the example, rather than the exception, and takes pride in a team that interacts like family. And Bloomin' Blinds, one of the fastest growing blind companies in the United States, is the definition of a family based and family-centered business. Along with his 3 brothers, Kelsey runs this window treatment company that they took over from their mother who started this business back on September 11, 2001 - yes, the same day as the infamous and terrible hijackings. Tune in to learn more about how this family came together to build one of the most impressive and fastest growing window treatment companies in the USA, as well as how to navigate running a business with family...without stepping on each other's toes.
