NEW YORK (June 8, 2015) – Kellen, the largest global association management and communications company, today announced the launch of its new, unified brand. Formerly known as Kellen Company and its various practice groups, including Kellen Communications, Kellen Meetings, Kellen China and Kellen Europe, the new brand – Kellen – encompasses all services across the company’s seven offices. With the rebranding, the company has also launched a new corporate website integrating all services and locations.
“Our new look and unified positioning speak to the company’s innovative spirit and dynamic growth,” said Peter Rush, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kellen. “The change we’ve experienced over the last two years presented the perfect opportunity to reevaluate our position in the market. Our global approach is now reflected in our new brand.”
“What makes our industry so unique is that our clients represent the professions and industries that impact people around the world every day, from the safety of the food we eat, to new discoveries in healthcare, to the soundness of the buildings we live in. Kellen is committed to the success of our clients because we believe in the many ways their work serves others. That passion has always been part of Kellen’s brand,” Rush added.
Kellen is a solution provider for hundreds of associations and not-for-profits. In the past year, its fiftieth, Kellen’s growth has been unprecedented. The company’s acquisition of AGEP in Brussels has made Kellen the largest management firm globally for food and beverage associations, while acquiring the Chicago-based – The Sherwood Group – has further strengthened Kellen’s expertise in the medical and scientific fields. And since January 1, Kellen has added more than two dozen associations for management, communications and consulting services. A new 30,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility Kellen will open in Chicago this summer will afford clients an exciting array of new resources, including innovative training centers and high-tech education rooms.
“This is an extremely exciting time for our company as well as our industry,” said Greg Schultz, Kellen Group Vice President in Chicago. “The sophistication of our staff resources and the company’s global reach has never been stronger. With each phase of growth, our clients are benefiting and reaching new heights on an international scale.”
Kellen is a global management and communications company serving more than 125 trade associations, professional societies and charitable organizations representing over 10,000 companies and 100,000 professionals worldwide. We specialize in management, communications, digital strategy, regulatory affairs, meetings and events, and consulting across a diverse range of industries.
