Ken is a fairly new transplant to Melbourne Australia after having spent most of his career as a talent agent in Los Angeles. His husband, Peter Walsh, is known as the ‘Organising Guy’ from the Network 9 television reality series SPACE INVADERS. Ken runs the business operations of Peter’s career.
With a degree in mathematics from Brown University, Ken began his career on Wall Street as an analyst before pursuing his MBA in finance from Northwestern University. At that point, he made a literal and figurative left turn by taking a chance and driving to Hollywood to pursue his real dream of working in the entertainment industry. Some of his contributions to the entertainment world include launching the careers of the Melbourne-based James Wan and Leigh Whannel who created the SAW franchise of movies. As a karma balance, though, Ken also represented the entire creative team behind the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL series of films.
Ken is very passionate about the work that Pinnacle does. Michelle Obama put it this way: “When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.” That’s what Pinnacle does best.
