From intern to president, Kelly is ready to lead the next generation.
Morefield Communication proudly announced today that on June 21, 2021, Wesley “Wes” W. Kelly will become the next president of Morefield Communications. Marking a new chapter in the company’s history, Kelly will become the fourth president of the company, and the first outside of the Morefield family since the company was founded in 1945.
Kelly began his career at Morefield in 1999 as a student intern and was hired full-time as a Programmer Analyst after graduating from Pennsylvania State University, Capital College. Within a few short years, he became the Operations Manager for Morefield’s largest region. In 2004, Kelly was promoted to Manager of Converged Engineering Services, and in 2008 became a shareholder. Two years later, Kelly was promoted to Vice President of Services, and in 2015, was named to Morefield’s Board of Directors. For the past four years, Kelly has been leading and growing Morefield as the Executive Vice President of Sales and Services.
“It has been a privilege to build my career here at Morefield alongside a tremendous team. I am excited to carry this seventy-five-year legacy forward,” said Kelly. “This place is special. We will strive to make the community better by making organizations successful through their use of technology. We want the next generation to benefit from their experiences at Morefield and see their work contribute to the communities they live in.”
“Wes has developed an unparalleled ability to lead over his 21-year tenure at Morefield. It is with a great sense of gratitude to Wes that I can transition into a new role at Morefield with the confidence that my grandfather’s vision, and the community we have collectively built over the past 75 years, will continue to grow in this next chapter under his guidance,” remarked John D. Morefield, current President. John Morefield will remain as chairman of the Board at Morefield as well as take on the role of Client Advocate.
When he is not working, Kelly enjoys attending his children’s sporting events with his wife Stephanie. Kelly holds a B.S. in Computer Science from The Pennsylvania State University, Capital College, several industry specializations certificates, was a member of Vistage International, and continues to participate with several industry advisory boards and peer groups.
