Kelly Robinson, CEO
Kelly first showcased his entrepreneurial spirit as a co-founder of a technical staffing firm in the United Kingdom. He then went on to launch Broadbean (2001) with the vision to post the world's online job adverts. He cultivated this idea along with a fantastic team (thank you) into a global business.
Kelly grew Broadbean by fostering a working environment characteristic of many young technology companies: one that allowed its people to thrive. In 2009, he brought Broadbean to the United States and recreated the type of environment, which had proven to be successful for him in the UK. He hand-selected the first of his crew in the US office based upon their ability to work collaboratively while taking ownership in wearing many hats. He believed that the culture he fostered would need to parallel the spirit of the existing Broadbean brand in order to produce great results.
A few years later, Broadbean Technology has created a strong global presence with offices in the US, Europe, and Australia with no intention of slowing down. Although its organisational culture has evolved with its growth, the company remains true to the core fundamentals of its inception: "Keep it light and fun while getting the job done!"
