Kelly Fallis – Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce Board Member
Despite growing up in the one stoplight town of Durham, ON and doing stints in BC, Switzerland, Boston, NYC and Toronto, the one place Kelly has always called home is Muskoka. In 2016 Kelly crossed the bridge from lifelong Lake Muskoka cottager to Gravenhurst resident. This three-time entrepreneur started in finance, on sales & trading desks on Bay Street. Addicted to the concept of return on investment but hating being attached to a physical desk, Kelly launched a Toronto-based home staging outfit and maximized the return on 750 Toronto homes in just five years. In 2010, long before ecommerce was a reality, she saw the need to make purchasing furniture to homes across Canada and the US nuisance free, thereby launching online furniture and delivery platform, Remote Stylist. With a keen eye for beautiful spaces, an addiction to project management and an obsession with technology, launching RS Muskoka in 2016 with her husband and business partner Morgan was a natural combination. With a focus on return on investment and in-house building, design and sourcing capabilities their #muskokamakeovers span recreational, residential, commercial and development projects. Kelly is a leading authority on entrepreneurial life, bootstrapping, startups, small business, technology and automation as well as a regularly quoted expert on home decor trends. She won Canada’s Business News Network ‘Best Pitch of 2012’, and has had feature stories in the New York Times, Crains NY, Inc. Magazine, The National Post, Toronto Star, Canada.com, Wish Magazine, HGTV and numerous online publications. This tech-savvy entrepreneur with a passion for pretty spaces and maximizing return on investment is so excited to help the Gravenhurst community blossom into the town she knows it can be.
