Larry Kelley, who brings a vast array of experience in large-scale development, heads the LDK Ventures development team. Mr. Kelley oversaw the entitlement and development of Stanford Ranch, which included developing and implementing a long-term phasing plan flexible enough to meet the needs of a changing economic environment over several economic cycles. In addition, Mr. Kelley and his team worked with County staff to develop the vision for McClellan Park. When most business and political leaders in the region felt the base closure spelled certain economic collapse for northern Sacramento County, Mr. Kelley saw the opportunity to convert the base into a first class multi-faceted business park. This was accomplished by a combination of adaptive reuse of selected existing facilities and developing new buildings as needs required. As the vision for the project has been implemented, it has surpassed the number of jobs housed at the time of closure and will be a major economic engine for the County well into the future.
In addition to Mr. Kelley's role in Stanford Ranch and McClellan Business Park, his forty years of experience includes over 20 master planned communities in Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Nevada, Arizona and California.
