Rory Kelly

As the owner of CellOnly, Rory does more than provide leadership, he fosters a 'family' culture unlike any other that has spread throughout the company.

Serving on multiple non-profit boards and committees at his church, St. Mary's, Rory plays an active role in the Sioux Falls community. He believes involvement is a key to success as a company, as a community, and as human beings.

Having achieved many accomplishments, Rory most recently was awarded the Master Grad certificate from Rapport International, a leadership institute known for helping individuals to recognize their talents and purpose. CellOnly has given the gift of Rapport to over 80 friends and employees.

By day, you can find Rory meeting with his team and Sioux Falls community members, serving on boards, working out, and running his kids to their activities. By night, you'll find him coaching kids' activities, cooking, spending time with his wife, Amber, their three children and two Great Danes, and diving into a good book or series. Rory's also enjoys include learning, travelling to and experiencing new places, and meeting new people. Often he refers to his wife, Amber, as a saint, noting that she has been the guiding force behind all positive change in his life.
