About Career Day

Keynote Speaker

Josh Kelley

Josh Kelley

Director, Strategy & Value Realization,
MetLife


Strategist.
Storyteller.
Value hunter.

Starting in the Mad Men-like world of advertising, Josh built digital strategies and brought them to life in online experiences for major brands like CSX, Kumon and HondaJet. Josh’s jump into Information Technology took him to Syngenta, a global agriculture company. There he led change management activities for a global program that embedded leading edge technologies. The solution helped rethink how digital product data is used to make market-impacting decisions.

Today, Josh is reshaping how MetLife defines success for global programs and projects by leading the implementation of Benefits Realization Management. BRM is a framework aimed at creating a culture of value measurement and accountability where the data drives the success story.

Josh obtained his undergraduate degree in Marketing, and graduate degree in International Entrepreneurship, from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He lives in Apex, NC with his wife and daughter.
