Quickly rising through the ranks at a large internet marketing firm Ken began managing the top 10% of accounts. Continuously contributing to the success of his accounts he was tasked with the development and training of new employees who consistently outperformed their peers. Growing in the understanding of the operations of a marketing firm he realized that many small businesses can't afford large firms, and are stuck trying to figure out how to bring in business and profit.

Having a passion for local small businesses he began the development of Prepared Marketing. With dedication and experience, Ken has successfully grown his company from a one-man operation to a small agency employing a variety of talented workers that continually contribute to its success. In 2018, The Prepared Group was created, shifting the focus from tactical agency services to a comprehensive marketing strategy consulting process. 

Owning a small business and being part of the 5% of businesses that survived within the first five years has helped Ken realize that one must always improvise, adapt and overcome. “It brings me joy seeing a struggling business take new initiatives and implement them leading them to a win because my success is defined by the success of the businesses around me.”

Ken and his lovely wife Courtney, along with their five children currently reside in Newberg, OR. Ken enjoys BBQing with his family and staying up to date with the business world by continuously reading over 100 books a year.
