Not only did Keeley Companies sponsor and host the event, but we also had 17 teams made up of Keeley'ns!

Good Shepherd is a remarkable organization here in St. Louis. Their team...

This past November, Keeley Companies and ZeroDay took part in Extra Life! Extra Life is an incredible organization that unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Our amazing Keeley'ns came together for a day of fun & family, and during the 24-hour gaming marathon, raised over $5,000 for the hospitals in...

While earning my MBA, I was able to sit down and interview Jan Torrisi-Mokwa for a research

paper. Jan held a special place at the Keeley Companies as one of our best, brightest, and most passionate leaders. She was an inspirational force in the world. Jan worked with Keeley Companies since 2006 as the Architect, Teacher, and Facilitator of our Strategic Planning Process.


Dear New Intern,

In the marketing department, we say we have the best job—we are the storytellers. We have the opportunity to take your accomplishments, your grit, your passion, your story and share them with the world. However, “storytelling” does not encompass all the hard work it takes to successfully run a marketing department, and as an intern on the Keeley Companies Marketing Team, I...

Today, every Keeley’n at our 2018 Mid-Year Support Strategic Planning Meeting wore red in honor of Jan Torrisi-Mokwa, our beloved red-lipstick-wearing champion, leader, and mentor. Her leadership was sorely missed, though remembered through tears and story-telling.

She was our personal hero dedicating her career to helping leaders and her community. Jan served on the World...

In 2016, I was faced with a major decision, a crossroads. Either continue in the L. Keeley Construction Heavy Civil group as a Senior Project Manager or follow my true passion: focus on helping others achieve professional growth and development. This career decision would require me to make several big changes and take major risks.

As I talked with those around me about what...

During my 37 years working in Safety, I have seen many different approaches to comprehensive Safety Programs. While these approaches have been effective in many ways, none of them have fully succeeded in attaining and sustaining ZERO unsafe acts. Why?

Safety Programs do not drive to ZERO, Safety Cultures do. To reach ZERO, you need both an effective Safety Program AND a stro...

At Keeley Companies we believe in the power of failure.

Fail often. Fail fast. Fail forward.


Too often in today’s work society we get trapped in an atychiphobic culture. That means fear of failure, my friends! We have ambitious goals here at Keeley, and we experience challenges every day to meet our evolving demands... A concept with which we can all relate. Yet, I h...
