Kevin M. Kelly
Kevin M. Kelly is the founder and owner of Port Cargo Service, LLC, a group of companies that specialize in logistics. His operations include more than 3 million square feet of industrial warehouse space—the largest of its kind in the South. In addition to this business, Mr. Kelly has a keen interest in preserving New Orleans’s historic structures. He has served on a number of boards and committees, including the Louisiana Trust of Historic Places, Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, Historic District Landmarks Commission, Preservation Resource Center and The Trust for Public Land. In 2003, he also purchased the 19th-century Houmas House, embarking on a restoration of the mansion and its gardens to their former glory as “the Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road.” It remains his private residence, but he has opened it to the public to share the estate’s heritage, a legacy spanning more than 200 years.
