Ted Kellner, the co-founder, former chairman and former chief executive officer of Milwaukee-based Fiduciary Management Inc., has been named the new chief executive officer for the MKE 2024 Host Committee for next year’s Republican National Convention.
Kellner replaces Steve King, who is stepping down as CEO of the MKE 2024 Host Committee to spend more time with his family, according to a news release. King helped launch the Host Committee’s work when he was named CEO in September of 2022, and will remain a member of the Host Committee Board of Directors moving forward. He is a former ambassador to the Czech Republic and has been a part of 12 Republican presidential nominating conventions.
“I am confident that what we have started at the Host Committee has set Milwaukee up for success in 2024, and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to lead the launch of this organization,” Kingsaid in a statement. “While it has been a great honor to serve as the CEO of the Host Committee in my home state, this change will allow me more time to spend with my family in North Carolina.”
