Ken is the owner of Hemly Automotive and has created a portfolio of successful companies do to his business and savvy and entrepreneurial spirit. Ken spent his formative college years traveling and attending various Universities all over the US which is how he gained his worldly and well-versed acumen for forming business concepts with tangible outcomes. After college, Ken started his professional career as a car rental agent back in his hometown of Greenville in 2004. From there, he quickly moved up the ranks and in no time, he was Director of Sales and Marketing for 21 locations across 3 states. His dreams didn’t stop there and his goals of one day owning his own car rental franchise propelled him forward and led to his acquisition of a U-Save Car & Truck Rental franchise in 2008. In unison with his new venture, Ken also opened and operated a limousine and non-emergency medical transportation company.
When Ken realized his natural knack for being an entrepreneur, he dedicated himself to pursuing even higher goals to see if he had what it takes to succeed at the next level. In 2013 he opened an independent car rental company to offset the car rental franchise that he owned, which allowed him to operate two different brands with two different business models. With two companies, Ken’s fleet nearly doubled and the idea of Hemly Automotive was born. Over the years Hemly Automotive has grown and expanded from a private business to a commercial and retail shop. As soon as Ken pin points another business need, he acts accordingly which is how Hemly has subsequently acquired an insurance agency, to write his own auto policies and a property management company to lease his own properties. The portfolio of Hemly companies and acquisitions just make sense and have led Ken down the path of owning Hemly Automotive, Hemly Insurance Group, Hemly Properties, Best Rent A Car and MTTNRD Fleet Services.
