Kelly Sallee

Co-Founder

With a decade plus banking career across major financial markets, Kelly Sallee has conceptualized, developed, executed and managed communication and client profile strategies within the large corporate, international, commercial real estate lending and treasury management spaces. Sallee made a career of exceeding the needs and expectations of high profile and high net worth commercial real estate lending clients during her time with Wachovia Bank, N.A (Wells Fargo) in the Washington DC and New York, New York markets. But it wasn’t until Sallee, as Director of Large Corporate and International Communications for Fifth Third Bank, recognized the need to better service and help streamline the lives of extremely busy expats. She quickly came to the realization that there are “many boxes to be unpacked after the financial aspects of an international deal, transaction or relocation are done”.

It’s her dream to bring the luxury expat concierge service, The Xpat Desk, LP to the global marketplace with the first market rollout being Cincinnati, Ohio.

East Coast born and raised and earning her B.A. in communications in the greater Washington DC area,(Marymount University 98′) Sallee now resides in Cleveland, Ohio with her husband and two children.
