Kenroy Ellis is a product of APEX.  Carlos Walton has served as his mentor, brother, and friend for over 20 years.  Kenroy attended the APEX college tour in 2002 and was introduced to Morgan State University (MSU) where he graduated with honors in 2006 earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Accounting. Upon graduating, Kenroy started his career at Ernst & Young where he spent 3 years as an Auditor. Kenroy later transitioned into Internal Audit and, in 2015, he ended his corporate career at KPMG to pursue Entrepreneurship. Kenroy is now the owner of K. Ellis & Associates, offering business and accounting services to individuals and businesses, including non-profit organizations.


Kenroy stayed involved with APEX over the years and has over 15 years of experience as a motivational speaker and mentor for high school and college students. Kenroy offers a unique perspective in that he did not have any parental support during his quest to escape poverty and attain success. He successfully navigated high school and college without much support; he simply had a vision and refused to quit until that vision was realized.


Kenroy is forever an optimist and believes in unlimited possibilities. He sees no limitations for himself and others since he truly believes we can do anything we put our mind to.  Kenroy is the one to call when there’s a problem needing an immediate solution. Peaceful, authentic and genuine are three words that describe Kenroy Ellis.
