Hi I'm Brian Kelley

I'm a Mormon, a father, a grandfather, a surfer, a banker and an attorney, all in order of priority.

About Me

I recently retired as a Bank CEO, and am fulfilling my dream of living by the beach and surfing in the mornings. I have a wonderful wife, seven children and nine very spoiled grand children. I keep myself busy working as an expert witness, doing probono legal work and working in my community and church.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the Church, to parents each came from Mormon pioneer families, I needed to make my own decision to follow Christ, commit to his teachings. I served a Spanish speaking mission in Texas where I was tested and learned to rely on the Lord. The Church and my commitment to it has strengthened me in difficult situations, whether it was the divorce of my parents, the loss of an eye in college or the recent loss of loved ones. Ultimately, when we keep our life anchored to Jesus Christ, we can maintain a perspective on those eternal truths that are most important.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ's example by serving my fellow man, looking for opportunities to help others, being a good citizen and contributing to the community.
