Les McKeown’s Key Accomplishments Include . . .
Les McKeown is a serial founder/owner, sought-after advisor, best selling author and in-demand speaker. A native of Ireland, he first distinguished himself as that country’s youngest-ever accounting partner.

After working at Price Waterhouse, Les McKeown became a serial entrepreneur – launching over 40 separate businesses from a Pizza Hut master license, to a graphic design agency. He also started a tool and die manufacturing company in addition to one of Ireland’s leading contemporary art galleries, while simultaneously co-founding a business incubation consultancy that grew to 13 offices worldwide.One of Les McKeown’s crowning achievements was the creation of the European Union’s award-winning Entrepreneurship Program which launched literally hundreds of businesses, employing thousands of people. Les ultimately sold his share in that business and relocated to take over the firm’s US operations.

Now based in Marblehead MA, Les McKeown works with senior leaders every day to help them restore equilibrium to their companies, re-ignite confidence in their own management skills, and lead their teams forward into the next stage of growth. As a trusted consultant to virtually every type of leader – CEOs of global multinationals, SVP’s of large non-profits, owner/managers of mid-sized businesses, and “solopreneurs” of emerging companies, Les McKeown addresses the seven stages that any business could possibly face in its lifecycle. Through a new model called “Predictable Success” he enables anyone, at any level, in any company to make transformation possible.

Les McKeown is the author of Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track– And Keeping It There. In the book, Les describes seven stages of the business life-cycle, with “Predictable Success” being at the peak. Developed by McKeown, “Predictable Success” is a business growth methodology for any group of people, be it an organization or a division, department, group, team or project – which they can utilize consistently (and with relative ease) to achieve their common goals, maintain success – and keep it there.

Les Mckeown’s clients span a variety of organizations and industries including: United Technologies, Pella, Chiron Corporation, T-Mobile, Harvard University, American Express, Canadian Defense Department, and Verisign.
