Bio: Ken is the Director of workcampNE and also serves as Chairman of the Board. He infuses his vision, drive and passion for Christ by constantly challenging board/staff members to “think outside the box.” This thinking has brought camp from 1 to 3 weeks each year, multiple “custom camps” and leadership/development seminars throughout the year. He’s actually much happier swinging a hammer at a site when he can sneak out from under the rest of the staff’s watchful eye! His passion for Christ is evident as he plans ways to bring more students to camp in order to serve more families in need.
As director of The LEGACY Center and a Board member, Ken is instrumental in creating, planning, implementing curriculum and facilitating training for businesses, ministries, community organizations and other non-profits with respect to leadership development, coaching, and building self-directed teams. Ken combines his knowledge and experience in the organizational development field, with his passion for helping others. Ken found success in the business world by leveraging the power of cultural alignment at LEGACY Supply Chain Services, formerly TMSi. There he served for more than 10 years as the Vice President of Organizational Development. Under his direction the company realized a cultural shift that contributed to stronger teams, shared core values and increased profitability.
Ken holds a M.Ed. from Plymouth State University, a B.S. in Business Management from Granite State College, additional credits towards an M.Div, is an approved MBTI practitioner, and Six Sigma Black Belt. He has spoken to both domestic and international audiences about the importance of using cultural alignment to build stronger organizations that can make a lasting social impact.
