Kevin Kelly, founder and current CCO of BigBuzz Marketing Group, one of Long Island’s fastest growing digital advertising agencies. Mr. Kelly is the driving force in the growth and vision of BigBuzz. Mr. Kelly graduated Magna Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a major in Music Production & Engineering. Mr. Kelly worked with major recording artists such as Phil Collins, Steve Winwood & Madonna, adding his name to many top 10 singles & Platinum records. Mr. Kelly’s experience in music engineering and studio recording exposed him to the emergence of digital technology.
In the mid 1980s, he began creating computer-generated artwork for artists and their record albums. He expanded his programming knowledge to include HTML, ColdFusion, database architecture and web application design. Today, Mr. Kelly is instrumental in keeping the team and its clients at the leading edge of the industry.
Obsessed with continuous improvement, Mr. Kelly has graduated from the prestigious Disney Institute Leadership Excellence program and, most recently, the Disney Approach to Quality Service (DAQS) program, bringing the “Disney Way” to all things done at BigBuzz.
Mr. Kelly recently served as President of the Long Island Advertising Club (LIAC), the largest association of marketing agencies and professionals on Long Island. The LI Ad Club is also the host of the annual coveted BOLI awards. Mr. Kelly has been proud to serve as an active member & board member for the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce since its revitalization in the late 90s. He and BigBuzz give back to the community in many various forms, including support of the local Relay for Life, ONE.org, Jack Martin Fund, and a cause most close to his heart, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation in Kampala, Uganda, which his sister founded.
When not obsessing about BigBuzz, Kelly spends time with his other passions: His wife Stacy and 3 kids, being fanatical about the Philadelphia Eagles, listening to Sheryl Crow and racing Mini Coopers (new and classic – watch him on YouTube).
Mr. Kelly continues to push the limits of innovation in the digital advertising industry.
