Our Story

Kelley Austin co-founders Hunter Austin and Waylon Kelley have 20+ years of combined experience in the Salesforce ecosystem and have worked for and with many Salesforce consulting firms over the years. They learned many great principles along the way, but the one thing they felt was missing the most from the industry was an exemplary employee experience — an experience where team members felt connected, empowered, and appreciated.

They wanted to create an environment where work is not the most important thing in your life, so they set out to build that environment first and foremost. The Salesforce Consulting ecosystem was the perfect vehicle to drive that concept and build a culture rooted in growth and collaboration.

Being a Salesforce partner allows the Kelley Austin team the flexibility of an ideal work environment and the ability to grow as quickly as each team member desires. Our team consistently works towards building a culture that everyone can be proud to be a part of. It’s not always easy, which is why we set quarterly goals for culture initiatives to ensure that these goals stay top of mind.

Our team continues to grow in both size and expertise, but regardless of size, we vow to not lose sight of the values our company was founded on.
