2018 Golf Tournament Honoree: John F. Kelly, President & CEO, Frenkel & Company

Partners for Health recognized John F. Kelly for his leadership of the 2018 Golf outing, an event he has chaired since 2013.  Through the generous sponsorship of Frenkel & Company – and so many others – the Tournament has raised more than $1.1 million since John joined the Foundation Board in 2005.

John has more than 35 years of experience in the insurance industry and founded the Frenkel National Accounts Department in 1985.  Over the past 35 years, John has worked extensively in both the domestic and London markets and has enhanced Frenkel’s reputation in the French market with both insurers and brokers.  In 2001, John led the management buyout of Frenkel’s ESOP and returned Frenkel & Company to private ownership.  As President and CEO, he remains actively involved in the more complex accounts within Frenkel.  He is a member and past president of the New York Chapter of the Society of Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriters. 

In addition to serving as a Trustee of Partners for Health, John is on the Insurance Executive Board of the Atlantic Health System, a Director of A Lot to Grow, a Council Member at the University of Notre Dame for the College of Arts and Letters, and a Board Member of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation.  

John and his wife, Dr. Patrice Kelly, Founder and Executive Director of A Lot to Grow, reside in Glen Ridge and New York City.
