Vice President of Development
Jeff Kelman is vice president of development for Free To Choose Network. The ideas of classical liberalism first captured Kelman after reading Milton Friedman's classic book, Capitalism and Freedom. He was so taken in by the book — and the promise that it could serve as a primer for neophytes to liberty — that he personally bought and handed out copies to friends, and friends of friends. After handing out a few hundred copies, Kelman found Free To Choose Network.
Kelman brings with him years of experience as a successful sales executive in the high technology sector, working for firms such as Oracle, Dyn, and Catchpoint. The fast pace of the changing tech landscape, startups, and acquisitions were all part of the intrigue, but Kelman always found the regulations and red tape involved in different facets of the industry to be greatly bothersome. Prior to tech sales, Kelman lived and worked in the casino gaming industry in Las Vegas, Nevada for nearly a decade.
Kelman graduated from the University of Nevada - Las Vegas and is currently finishing his master’s degree from Gratz College, a private institution in Melrose Park, Pennsylvania.
Jeff currently lives in the Manchester, New Hampshire area, with his wife Michelle and son Craig.
