Kelly Bennett, Chief People Officer (CPO)/Co-Founder/Co-Owner

When we started AMain in 2004, I basically was a ‘Jack of All Trades’ and did the inventory stocking, customer service, product photography, shipping and returns, and financial accounting. My background before then was working for various retail stores, customer service, and human resources positions. I obtained my Associates Degree in 2004, but ended up dropping out of Chico State University once AMain started to take off and needed my full-time focus. Fast forward to 2016, with 80+ employees hired, and now I am able to focus on my current role as Chief People Officer. Basically, I run the Human Resources Department, but spend more time with developing and sustaining a healthy culture, ‘Share the Fun’, environment at AMain. One of my goals is to develop a business environment where people feel valued, fulfilled, and happy. When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my husband, Kendall Bennett (CEO of AMain), and my daughter, Meagan, who is six years old and just entered 1st Grade. My hobbies are creating art, writing, gardening, reading, cooking, and relaxing (which consists of meditation and/or sleeping).
