Ever since childhood, Ken knew he wanted to become a successful businessman.
Following the footsteps of his family, Ken began working for the family businesses early on in his life. Fast forward a couple decades later, and Collis graduated from Cal State Northridge with his Bachelor’s in Business. Soon into his business career, he became a partner with Bankcard Processing and proudly helped in the business development of Authorize.Net. Taking the company public at a young age was no easy task, especially with his partners being more than double his age. It was a learning experience that allowed him to grow into the business mogul that is still recognized in the financial industry today.
Collis remained in the financial industry until 2004. After selling his portion of the company, he accepted a position with iHeart Radio. He quickly rose to the top of the national billing chain, representing some of the largest clients on the books that included Donate Life California, Ford and Colgate. After much consideration and the recommendations of some of today’s biggest celebrities and industry executives, Ken Collis launched a new wave of marketing called TLK Fusion.
Today TLK Fusion remains a valuable asset to many businesses, both big and small, with a focus on cost efficiency and long-term relationships using the power of Ken’s rolodex of pop culture industry professionals. Ken has worked with some of the largest celebrities in the world, including the Kardashians, Jenni Rivera, Vicki Gunvalson, Mario Lopez and Ray J. TLK Fusion represents brands of all sizes, such as GUCCI, NIKE, Pepsi and Loreal.
In his spare time, Ken is an avid contributor to non-profits and believes in the importance of giving back – regularly donating to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, The American Red Cross, Donate Life California and Feed the Children. Outside of this, you can find Ken on the race track chasing his passion for exotic cars, or speaking to young entrepreneurs and giving them direction to grow their business in a noisy business world. Ken is married to his childhood sweetheart, has two beautiful children and a beautiful Pomeranian.
“The TLK Fusion purpose is serving the mission of our customers, as well as inspiring transformation in our own people, local communities and the larger world. We recognize and appreciate the role all of our stakeholders — customers, employees, shareholders and community — play in our success.”
