Kenneth R. Kennerly
Founder, President & Chief Executive Officer, IGP Sports & Entertainment Group, and Executive Director, The Honda Classic

After successful tenures with ProServ, Inc. (now SFX), Advantage International, LLC (now Octagon), and Golden Bear International (now Nicklaus Companies), Kennerly founded IGP Sports & Entertainment Group (formerly International Golf Partners) in 1996. Since the inception, IGP has become a multi-faceted sports and creative marketing and management agency. In 2006 his company was recruited by the PGA TOUR to resurrect The Honda Classic, and transform it into one of the premier sporting events not only in Palm Beach County but on the PGA TOUR nationwide. The Honda Classic, in six (6) years, has become a “must attend” event boasting an increase in attendance from 40,000 (in 2006) to over 160,000 spectators in 2012. In addition, the charitable contributions have risen from $450,000 (in 2006) to over $1.8m (estimated) through the 2012 tournament, for a six (6) year estimated total of over $6m to the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and over 100 other Palm Beach County children’s related charities.
