Kris Kehler is an innovator and entrepreneur with 20 years of experience in design, corporate branding, digital media and software engineering. Having started his first company at the age of 15, he’s pursued an evolving career on the quest for knowledge, growth and people that has led him to his current role as CEO of DebtPayPro and CTO of DebtPayGateway.
After completing his degree in Digital Media Production at the Illinois Institute of Art, Kris rejected offers in the corporate job market to continue his startup design and marketing firm located in the heart of downtown Chicago, IL. After graduating college, Kris taught Media and Flash Animation at Waubonsee Community College as an adjunct instructor, contracted as an outsourced CTO for a large real estate company in Oakbrook IL and continued his entrepreneurial path.
Having nearly a decade of experience at the time in corporate identity systems, branding, print production, web and media design, as well as a clientele list that included names such as Motorola, Crayola, Ingram Micro and Snap-On Tools, Kris gained an immeasurable amount of exposure and experience at a young age that would help shape the future successes of DebtPayPro and DebtPayGateway. Journey forward another 10 years to today, Kris continues to apply his experiences and knowledge in both the DebtPay Companies, as well as other companies in both an investment and advisory role.
