Ben Kelly

Head of Finance

Ben has been with Business Disability Forum for eight years having been engaged as maternity cover on a return trip from Thailand where he was teaching English as a foreign language to over 1,000 pupils in a rural Thai secondary school while raising a young family among the rice paddies.

Previously Ben has headed up the Finance teams at BIC, Ethos Recycling, Hoohing Oriental Supermarkets and FEVA Toys so brings a wealth of commercial experience to the role.

Until recently Ben was Chair of Finance on the board of governors at his local Primary school, working closely the local authority to update their funding formula to ensure fairness for all schools by removing historical grant awards from the formulae. The school became part of Hillingdon’s recent expansion programme and Ben stepped down once the board of governors had overseen the conversion to academy status.
