Meeting the Challenge (MTC), a nationally recognized disability rights laws expert, and provider of implementation solutions for government and commercial clients, today promoted Kent Kelley to president.

Prior to the promotion, Kelley served as MTC’s Chief Operating Officer, since January 2010, working to increase the company’s revenue stream from its private consulting work. In his new role Kelley will provide executive leadership, financial management, and strategic planning across all channels of the company.
“What we do, each day, at MTC is work hard to provide disability rights insights to our many government and business clients in order to create a more accessible world for everyone,” said Kent Kelley “The confidence the board expressed in my abilities through this process is truly humbling and I look forward to a bright future for MTC as we work to aggressively increase our market share across the US.”

Since 1989, Meeting the Challenge has provided a starting place for public and private entities to gain understanding and guidance to solve compliance challenges. What MTC does as a company is grounded in many federal disability laws. At the most basic level, it is important for organizations to be in compliance with these laws to minimize their exposure to legal proceedings that could result from noncompliance. MTC believes that accessibility should be about more than compliance. It believes the investment clients make in compliance should have a measurable return. This return can come in many forms, and MTC’s experience across 24 years of disability law consulting has shown innovative ways to help clients realize that return.
