Shea Kelly

Shea Kelly

President and Chief Executive Officer

Shea Kelly is the son of founder Mike Kelly and has been officially with CCR since 2000. His job is to make sure that everyone is rowing in the same direction. “Many organizations reach a point where they get stuck and stagnate. My responsibility is to challenge my team to break through that and continue to grow.”

Shea’s education comes in the form of a lifetime of experience with most of it at CCR, though he pursued a degree in programming to further aid business growth.

He most values the phenomenal teamwork at CCR. “It’s all about the people. I love coming to work.” This is echoed in the most important lesson he’s learned over the course of his career: Success is not in ideas; it’s in execution, and it stems from people. As a leader, he facilitates greatness by ensuring teams continually grow together to get better at what they do.

When it comes to technology, Shea finds it fascinating how technology can both improve and detract value from the world. Tech affects society and our ability to interact with each other both positively and negatively. That’s why technology services are so important. It’s a responsibility to make sure that technology adds value to the world.

If given an entire day to himself, Shea would wake up early on a tropical island. He would eat fresh food at a new restaurant for each meal, read a spy book, go golfing, take a quick nap, and then hit the water to Jet Ski and deep-sea fish. To wrap up the day, he would catch a late movie, winding down for bed around midnight.

Seth Kelly

Seth Kelly

Director of Operations, Engineering, and Innovation

Seth Kelly has been part of the CCR team since 1998, and yes, he’s related to CCR CEO Shea Kelly (they’re brothers). His role focuses on guiding teams toward the future while improving their day-to-day tasks. He’s constantly reviewing the way we approach problem-solving, innovation, and service delivery while looking for ways to improve efficiency. This allows us to do more for our clients in much less time. Seth has been part of CCR for his entire life, working part-time in high school with various departments in different roles. This exposure created a deeper understanding of the business, which provided the foundational knowledge required to succeed in his current position. He studied Network Administration at Hamilton Business College, and he takes continuing education courses to keep up with ever-evolving technology.

Over the course of his career, he’s learned that times of great challenge are excellent teachers to those willing to seek the lesson. “When we internalize the lessons that setbacks present, true growth and strength result.”

Seth loves that CCR embraces out-of-the-box solutions that allow us to explore new opportunities for success. He’s most interested in how technology is integrated in both our personal and professional lives.

If Seth could go anywhere, you’d find him with his family, fishing on the Gulf of Mexico.

Cathy Dmello

Cathy Dmello

Vice President of Technology

As VP of Technology, Cathy is in charge of implementing CCR’s technology objectives, both on current projects and investing in future ones. She oversees the product development of the company, and she ensures a healthy IT ecosystem.

With a Masters in Accounting/Finance and Economics and an Associates in PC Programming, it’s unsurprising that she’s leading a team of developers to enhance CCR’s competitive advantage. She loves the fast-paced, ever-evolving environment at CCR and she enjoys the adrenaline rush that comes from being part of a world full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.

Over the course of her career, Cathy has learned as a leader to strive and live for truth. She values people being their most authentic selves despite a world that pressures conformity.

If Cathy could pack up her bags and take a break right now, you’d find her on a secluded island or beach, relaxing and soaking up the sun.

Tony Krueger

Vice President of Finance

As the functional leader for the finance, facilities, and warehouse teams, Tony finds himself most enjoying CCR’s workplace culture. With a background as a Functional Leader in Finance and Technology, Tony was made for the role that was created at CCR in 2019.

He spent 20 years in the Financial Services Industry, and before that, he worked in auditing, accounting, and technology sectors. He earned his degree in Accounting from the University of Iowa and has been with CCR since 2019.

Tony’s leadership style comes from being open and accepting of feedback. “Feedback is the most important thing to me. It works both ways and should be both positive and negative (when necessary). A leader should encourage others to grow and a leader should grow by learning from team members.” He also considers himself an early adopter of technology, which makes working for a tech company like CCR all the more exciting.

If given an entire day to himself, you can find Tony doing a 100-mile bike ride around the backroads of Iowa or climbing a mountain in Colorado.

Jeff Lord

Jeff Lord

General Manager of Managed IT

Jeff has been the General Manager of CCR’s Business IT segment since 2016. He leads our IT team in supporting small to mid-sized businesses by improving productivity and managing risk through technology. Before CCR, he learned his way to the top of IT by starting in a help desk position and ending up as President of a multi-state software services business.

Jeff loves that human connection is the center of what we do at CCR. The way technology and service combine to enhance human creativity fascinates him, saying, “The engine to our highest aspirations is completely people-powered. IT by humans for humans.” Over the course of his career, people have become his greatest lesson. “Treat them well, tell them the truth, and enable them to do their best, and they will make things happen beyond imagination (and my individual ability)!”

If given an entire day to himself, Jeff would start with a delicious breakfast of sweet potato and Brussels sprout hash, followed by a nice round of golf (hopefully without losing too many balls). Then lunch with his wife, followed by a BBQ and a couple IPAs with their 4 adult children. His alternative choice for a lazier day off? An all-day PS4 marathon.

The most important lesson he’s learned is being flexible and willing to help the team. “It’s really about service leadership.
