Meet our General Manager at Promenade

Seán K Kelly

Seán joined the team at Promenade in February 2022. Born and raised in Ottawa, Seán‘s background and experience in Customer Service and Client Care spans over thirty years. His track record of success led to over thirteen years managing Member Service and Event Management teams at some of Canada’s most prominent national associations. There, he continued to develop and refine a service philosophy that enhances an organization’s connection with its members and stakeholders by building relationships based on trust and confidence in the services they offer, through a seamless, engaging experience that is personal, memorable and exceeded their expectations.

Early in 2018, Seán transitioned from national associations to senior living, assuming the role of General Manager at one of Canada’s premiere retirement communities. His background and experience were instrumental in creating an exceptional resident experience, building a strong sense of community and loyalty among staff, and fully transitioning to a resident-centric approach. Seán’s colleagues and residents would describe him as a creative, caring and action-oriented leader with presence, who possesses excellent interpersonal, communication and leadership skills.

On a personal level, Seán is the proud father of two sons, both of whom have grown up to be kind, caring and hard-working young men. He’s also takes immense pride in the fact that he’s always made time to give back to his community, by sitting on the Board of Directors for local community service organizations, coaching youth sports, and volunteering.
