Timothy Kelley, President/CEO
Born and raised in the Chicago area, Mr. Kelley is an experienced business planner with extensive experience in marketing products in the medical arena. Education was completed at Northwestern University in Organizational Behavior. Marketing pharmacy benefit management, selling of pharmaceuticals, to veterinary pharmaceutical and medical equipment distribution, led Mr. Kelley to forming Sutherland Technologies, a business of marketing medical grade media (CDs, DVDs) to hospitals worldwide under an outsourced management agreement with TDK. To further promote the sales of this media, the company developed a recording system to place medical images on to CDs. With the rapid success of this developing market, Sutherland Technologies was absorbed by TDK to better apply internal resources to this burgeoning market. Managing nearly 40 sales and marketing professionals, Mr. Kelley expanded marketing throughout North and South America and the European community. The establishment of key OEM partnerships with GE, Siemens, and Philips put TDK Medical products at the forefront of this market.
Upon leaving TDK Medical, Mr. Kelley founded his own radiological recording and media company C&C Medical where they developed a new market brand, Same Day Labs. After producing $4 million in sales in less than two years, Mr. Kelley sold out of this company to form another radiological recording company, Nautilus Medical, for the purpose of developing medical recording software. During this time, Mr. Kelley applied his experience with medical information recorded on CDs to develop a new business model of disseminating key information on a platform for expecting mothers that would produce revenue through sponsors without the cost being passed onto the user. As President of The Baby CD, Mr. Kelley will continue development of the Company vision of becoming the de facto standard of information given to expecting and new mothers.
