Kenneth (Ken) Ketner was born in Los Angeles California. His early successes and struggles would formulate his personality and commitment to others, from which he grew. As a young child he became stricken with a debilitating bone disease and with the help of Children’s Hospital and many others he turned this negative into a positive. He was honored by being named the California Easter Seal child of the year. He recovered and went on to lead a normal life but always remembered the people who helped him.
After attending Cal Poly Pomona Mr. Ketner started a career in the securities industry as retail stock broker for a New York Firm. He became involved in several charities and civic organizations doing public service in his community. At one of those events he was approached about financing a local fire station which would change the path of his career. He was successful in that endeavor and then started obtaining public financing for small municipalities that were overlooked. Mr. Ketner started his own firm at that point and provided various forms of financing for a diversified group of entities. One of those sectors was the building industry for which his firm provided equity and joint ventures opportunities for home builders. Eventually Mr. Ketner became a licensed contractor and began building sub-division himself in Southern California.
California was facing a property tax crisis when a member of the California State Assembly approached Mr. Ketner about running for public office and assisting the community. Mr. Ketner accepted that responsibility and was elected to the Board of Trustees for Chaffey Community College where he was recognized both on the local and state levels for his contribution to higher education.
At this point Mr. Ketner used his experience that he had obtained from the public securities markets, his home building and his public service to formulate a career that over the next twenty five plus years would assist many companies and individuals in obtaining and fulfilling their financing needs.
Over the years Mr. Ketner has continued his involvement in civic and charitable organizations in his community and statewide. One of his current passions, where he sits on the Board, is an organization called “Let’s be Frank about Cancer” which is endorsed by the City of Hope.
Mr. Ketner resides in Orange County California with his wife Cheri. They have been married almost thirty years and have raised four daughters together. They are blessed with five grandchildren.
