Kelly has worked with some of the industry's leading manufacturers in the pool table, videogame, and jukebox markets, including Incredible Technologies and TouchTunes. He began his involvement as a promotions specialist for Anheuser-Busch, where he administered more than 500 on-premise dart events. Because of this unique background, he possesses a deep understanding of the challenges and needs of tavern and restaurant operators, AMI observed.
After spending the first week of June at AMI's Grand Rapids, MI, facilities to familiarize himself with the company's products and the system that supports them, Kelly is taking the field midmonth.
