The School Bell

When business talks in Palm Beach County, one calm voice rises above the rest.  One voice, passionate about our community and equally passionate about public education, traveling the country and the globe, tirelessly advocating for Palm Beach County.  The passion is not artificial.  It is as genuine as Kelly Smallridge herself.  President/CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County for the last 15 years (and an employee of the BDB for 31!!!), Kelly is as homegrown as City Place…Mizner Park…and Ray’s BBQ!
