Kelly M. Renz, CEO, Certified Pinnacle Business Guide®

Entrepreneur, facilitator, business coach and public speaker.

As a 25-year entrepreneurial leader, Kelly has never been one to conform to conventional business practices.  Her innate desire to challenge the status quo and a relentless drive for better results influences how she approaches her work.  One of her former CEO’s would say she could see around corners.  And she believes that is possible – there is an art and science to running a business and she subscribes to building accountability to achieve results.

She became one of only 100 certified Pinnacle Business Guides in the world because she enjoys working with entrepreneurs to get more of what they want from their businesses. Pinnacle© is an evolution. They packed up some of the finest business tools on the planet—all curated from hundreds of time-tested books, proven systems and concepts—then custom designed for each business’s unique climb—all to help teams gain the highest impact in the shortest amount of time.  She has spent the past decade in sessions learning, and teaching leadership teams how to implement growth. It’s not an easy journey, but in the end the view is incredible.

Kelly has held executive positions as CEO, leading sales, operations and human resources for companies ranging from $1M in revenue to $1.5B, Kelly knows that owning or leading a business is often overwhelming, stressful and challenging. Kelly has found that organizational transformation and developing business execution excellence is where she thrives. As a national speaker, Kelly often leads discussions and presentations about mission-critical topics such as talent practices, leadership, and business effectiveness because she believes better talent means better business.
