Wes KelleyDirector of Professional ServicesClose
Director of Professional Services
Wes joined the A|B Team as Director of Professional Services in June of 2017. He knew that he wanted to work with the A|B Leaders immediately upon meeting them as it was evident that they shared the same passion with respect to living honorably, working hard, maintaining strong client relationships, and being results driven.
Being in the Technology industry since 2002, Wes envisioned and began an FCC Licensed DOCSIS, Internet Service Provider or ISP company in West Texas. This experience led to rapid growth which had to be tightly managed since the business was self funded. Along with the ISP there was a cable television service, a small chain of eleven Convenience Stores, as well as Real Estate investments that Wes made and managed. He has since collapsed the Cable System for additional capacity with the ISP, merged the ISP into a larger regional player and saw to the divestment of the Convenience Store chain. He loves to continue following and investing in the Real Estate markets, and considers it a habit of his, buying his first duplex in Temple Texas during 1997.
Wes brings senior level operations leadership, management, customer service, research, and solutions to the table at A|B. He is always willing to be a strong team player and deploys a certain level of empathy to all he does whether it be in training or process improvements. Having been the President and CEO of his own companies over the past 16 years, you can be sure he has been around the block several times with bricks and mortar and technology business industries, striving to continuously improve along the way.
Born a 6th generation Texan, Wes grew up in northwest Houston. He has two beautiful daughters whom he has thoroughly enjoyed volunteering in their schools, church, and all manner of social activities. Additionally, Wes spent over 11 years volunteering for the West Texas Boys Ranch Board of Directors. During that time he successfully assisted his Executive Director with the acquisition of Sonrisas Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program from MOSAIC into the WTBR, agreeing to a three year term on its board to ensure a smooth transition, and has volunteered his time and talent as a Rodeo Committeeman for The San Angelo Stock Show And Rodeo since 2003.
Besides real estate and A|B, Wes also appreciates spending time outdoors in the wilderness areas of Colorado. He genuinely believes working at A|B is challenging, but mostly fun because of its People and its Product.

Terry MiddletonDirector of Sales and MarketingClose
Director of Sales and Marketing
When I was a kid in high school I wanted to be a programmer and be like Bill Gates. I went to school for programming and then decided to join the Air Force, which was one of the best experiences of my life.
After the Air Force I had a wonderful first career in IT and eventually became a programmer and loved every second of it. Then one day an event happened and I decided to switch paths and pursue my first love and passion: Sales and Marketing. I did not know anything about it, but knew one thing, I loved sales and market. I read as many books I could get my hands on, studied the great sales leaders and marketers and became a student. Still today I am thirsty to learn what I do not know about sales and marketing.
I have worked with some amazing companies such as Nike, US Olympic Committee, Dell, Fish The Baja, SAP, HornsIllustrated, Texas Veterinary Board and under even more amazing people. I love sales and marketing and wake up each day thinking about it. The one thing that draws me to it is people. Sales and marketing involves people, customers and colleagues. This is truly what drives me. Getting to engage with others and be a part of their journey to success.
The other side of me, my personal life, you can often find me swimming at Barton Springs Pool in Austin. This is one of my favorite places in the all the world. I love watercolor painting, reading, studying great people and writing (love writing) Funny story: I took writing 101 six times in college and still to this day need someone to look over my work. Sad, but truthful.
