Born and raised in Canton, Ohio, George W. Kelly III moved to Colorado upon graduating from St. Bonaventure University with a degree in Marketing in 1998. After starting his career with East West Partners in Vail which eventually took him to Lake Tahoe, George and his wife, Stacey, were drawn back to Colorado and the Roaring Fork Valley, an area that has become home.
After a career in leadership roles in technology with East West Partners and Aspen Skiing Company, George decided it was time to start his own business. In 2011, George founded Organic Return, an Award Winning Digital Marketing Agency with local and national clientele. Organic Return is a member of 1% For The Planet and focuses on working with hospitality, real estate and business-to-business companies throughout the United State.
George lives in Basalt with his wife and two kids. He joined RFC’s board in January of 2018.
