Kenneth Porter

President and CEO

Kenny Porter is the president and CEO of Kenneth Porter & Company, Ltd., a comprehensive wealth advisory firm based in Norfolk, Virginia. He and his support team are dedicated to coaching and empowering both individuals and business owners.

More than 20 years of financial training, business management experience and ownership of two multi-million-dollar businesses have molded and shaped Kenny’s experience. His uncanny ability to communicate and teach positive money philosophies has firmly positioned him as an authoritative voice in helping individuals and entrepreneurs discover and maximize their wealth potential. Kenny has facilitated hundreds of public and private informational seminars for institutions such as the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN), STIHL Inc., Virginia Beach police and fire departments, and numerous small-to-midsize businesses up and down the East Coast.

In 1996, Kenny began his career as a financial advisor with a privately held financial planning firm. He was instrumental in growing his financial company to approximately $190 million in assets under management and advising hundreds of life insurance clients until selling his interest in the firm in late 2009. During this time, Kenny took on one of the greatest challenges of his career and pursued his interest in the e-commerce and fulfillment industry. As the CEO, he grew that business from $1.5 million in sales to more than $5.5 million in less than three years. After successfully managing the closure and turnover of the company in December 2011, Kenny decided to return to his first love: Helping individuals and entrepreneurs discover and maximize their own wealth potential.

Kenny is a licensed insurance agent in Virginia, Tennessee, Utah, Nevada, Texas, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Kentucky and Florida.

Kenny is proud to have been chosen by Jack Canfield, author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and “The Success Principles,” as one of only 100 students selected annually for his prestigious and internationally acclaimed “Train the Trainer” program.

Kenny proudly served in the United States Marine Corps for 10 years — semper fidelis! In addition, he and his wife, Kathleen, created The 275 Foundation to assist families of children with special needs.

Kenny and Kathleen have been married for 24 years and live in Virginia Beach, Virginia. They have five children and three grandchildren. In his spare time, Kenny enjoys basketball, drone flying, boating and traveling with his family.

As an associate at Kenneth Porter & Company, Kevin brings a wealth of experience and a lot of enthusiasm to the office. Born in western Kentucky, Kevin grew up in Virginia Beach, the son of a Navy fighter pilot stationed in the Tidewater area. Kevin graduated from Norfolk Christian High School and earned a Bachelor of Science in communications from James Madison University.
Upon graduation, Kevin joined the Navy as a naval flight officer, eventually joining the F-14 Tomcat community. He completed multiply flying tours, operationally and as a flight instructor, accumulating more than 2,100 hours of flight time and over 600 carrier arrested landings. He also spent an operational tour driving the USS Kitty Hawk forward-deployed in Japan as well as staff tours in the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the Operational Test and Evaluation Force in Norfolk, Virginia.

While on active duty, Kevin completed his Executive Master’s in Business Administration from the Naval Post Graduate School, Monterey, California. This program, encompassing classes in business administration, economics and finance, awakened a passion for the financial field. This passion found an outlet when Kevin met Kenny at a Bible study. Kenny admitted his longtime desire to learn to fly, and Kevin admitted his desire to break into the financial field. This ultimately led to Kevin taking Kenny flying and Kenny helping Kevin to become a licensed insurance professional and an associate with Kenneth Porter & Co.
