Tracy Kelly

Client Experience Manager | Marketing • Creative • Digital

For Tracy Kelly, building a career has been a labor of love. The Rochester, MN native has been taking care of business since he was a kid. At age seven, the budding entrepreneur sold popcorn, soda, and caramel apples to visitors at his family’s farm market. From there, he worked his way up to his first commissioned sales job at age 11, earning $1 for every Christmas tree he sold. 

As the years passed, Tracy built swing sets and basketball hoops like nobody’s business and, at 19, won a Rainbow Play Systems national sales award. After high school, he ventured to St. Cloud State University, where he got down to business earning degrees in Marketing and Spanish.

Tracy was a firm believer that a little hard work never killed anybody, so he set off to corner the market on sales for a ventilation manufacturer, taking his division from $600K in annual sales to $2 million.

From there, this jack of all trades sold premium sandpaper to auto paint, wood flooring, and natural stone distributors before getting into digital marketing agency life. Now, at Celarity, Tracy does a bang-up job helping our incredible clients connect with talented candidates.

Lest you labor under the delusion that Tracy’s life is all work and no play, he does spend his downtime in the company of his 6-year-old son, Leonardo, and 4-year-old daughter, Carmela. He’s also sold on meditation, reading, and volunteering and is always in the market for some delicious candy.
