Did you know?
Ken’s nickname in the office is Né-Yo. Yes. The 00’s R’n’B singer we all loved whilst growing up.
This nickname comes from an epic performance of Né-Yo’s hit song, ‘So sick’ on a team night out!
"Be hungry, stay humble" - Ken— This comes from what my dad always taught me. In life, have a hunger for more and strive for perfection but at the same time, stay humble and true to yourself. Never forget where you came from.
