Improvise, Adapt & Overcome

Pinky brain

John Kelly

I am a motivated and dedicated Consulting Manager / Project Manager with the ability to think strategically and who is also willing to get down in the weeds and execute. I am a mission oriented problem solver and will always pitch in to help the team achieve its goal. Over the years I have proven to be a hands-on project leader who loves an implementation to work or problem to solve. I have a solid accounting background, a goal oriented attitude, an ability to rapidly learn new computer applications, a desire to learn new things, an ability to work on a diverse roster of tasks and a passion to provide an amazing client experience. I can talk server specs with the techies and then talk debits and credits with the accountants. When not gathering requirements or, explaining fund accounting concepts at work, I like to play drums, go fishing or with my nephew build lego spaceships.

Reliable & Loyal

It is important to know that I do not play games with my clients or my managers. I am someone who means what I say and delivers on my promises. Over the years I have become very good at making my clients understand a complex process and making them feel that all is in control. I am great at mentoring colleagues and helping them to build their skills and progress in their careers.  I am best at training clients / users on how to use a system and conducting a training class where they learn.

Driven & Tenacious

I come to work every day looking to add value. I know that time is fleeting and that I have to be constantly working with the team to move the project forward. I am very analytical and concentrate on the main goal in front of me. Being objective oriented, I commit to my goals and work hard to achieve them. I am dedicated to the task at hand and will never back down from a challenge. I do not quit!

Determined guy

Decisive Problem Solver 

I will not let a problem persist if I have the ability to fix it. At my heart and soul, I am a creative problem solver who enjoys a good puzzle. There is a satisfaction and validation that comes from going through a complex process and coming to a successful result. I love the challenge of looking at the task to be accomplished, the team I have to work with, the available data and figuring out how to achieve the goal.

Recommendations

  • Happy jumping man

    I worked with John for 3 years at TKS Solutions were he was instrumental in my career growth. As my background is in finance and marketing and not accounting, John showed his leadership ability and "patience" in taking time to help me answer questions that were "out of my scope". His ability to understand "big picture" scenarios and the importance of working with the business development group led to the highest client satisfaction ratings within the company. John's passion for his clients and his team's make him an instrumental asset for any organization.
