Partner, Chief Financial Officer
Beyond making sure that Eleven’s business practices are beneficial to the agency as a whole, Ken is a partner to our clients. By tracking the value of our work, he ensures that what we produce leads to measurable, positive outcomes for them.
As chief financial officer, Ken’s job naturally includes making sure that Eleven’s business practices are responsible, sound, and ethical. He also oversees the finance, operations, and IT departments. But beyond all that, Ken is a partner to our clients. By tracking the value of our work, he ensures that what we produce leads to measurable, positive outcomes for them.
Ken’s background will likely surprise you. Despite an extensive, diverse career in finance that’s taken him across the globe, Ken will say he’s more of an arts-and-language guy. He’s worked in over 30 countries and speaks three languages. He appreciates diversity, which means he’s receptive to other points of view. Being a foreigner has taught him how to genuinely listen and observe—two crucial components in maintaining positive relationships with clients, colleagues, and the other agency partners.
He’s been with Eleven for 11 years, and the people here are like family to him. It’s a vibe that permeates the agency—an atmosphere of respect and kindness—that leaders such as Ken help foster. In his free time, he’s also a coach. “Motivating the team and helping them develop feels great. I love coaching.”
