We have a fabulous team at KELL Partners – some may call us geeks, [and we’re ok with that] but we like to call our team members superheroes. This regular series will highlight a KELL team member. This post will focus on one of our Senior Project Managers, Brian Weldon.
What’s your favorite thing about working with nonprofits?
The nonprofit world is one of the last holdouts for the kind of people crazy enough to think that they can make a positive difference in the world...and to actually try. I love that.

My nonprofit roots are in Atlanta, Georgia where I served for many years with an amazing organization called She Is Safe. They work to prevent, rescue and restore women and girls from abuse and exploitation in high risk places around the world. Being a part of such significant life change is hard to beat.
