Congratulations to Kenny Ballard, the newly appointed president of Kelty, Inc. Way to go KB!!!
While the internal promotion quickly and solidy answers just about every question people might have had, the only question that it doesn't answer is this ... will the phone ring in six years with a job offer from Patagonia? Now that both Kelty presidents of the last decade -- Michael Crooke and Casey Sheahan -- hold their own keys to the Patagonia executive bike rack, it seems that the Boulder-Ventura pipeline is open and flowing.
Kudos to ThePiton.com for being the first to break the news.
