Kevan Worley has found purpose and success by owning his own business, finding ways to give back to the community, and sharing what he has with others. The son of an Army Sergeant and born blind in Germany, Worley was taken to see doctors at the Mayo Clinic upon his family’s return to the United States. Renowned eye specialists said to his parents, “Get him a good education.” They did.
In 1992, Worley used his education and experiences to launch and serve as CEO of Worley Enterprises. Since 2000, Worley has also served as the Executive Director of the National Association of Blind Merchants, a division of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), the largest and most influential membership organization of blind people in the United States. The NFB improves blind people’s lives through advocacy, education, research, technology, and programs encouraging independence and self-confidence.
Worley is also a member of the Colorado Springs’ Legislative Watch Council and is active in the Government Affairs Advisory Council. Worley sits on the Board of Directors at the Colorado Center for the Blind and he serves as Treasurer for the Colorado State Rehabilitation Council. Active in the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce and Catamount Environmental Institute and Rotary, Worley tries to live the company motto: “Building opportunity through service.”
