Ken London, President
Few people can claim that they started a company upon graduating from college that they built to $28 Million dollars in revenue. After doing just this, Ken London turned his passion for marketing, people and business to the Construction industry. Along with his brother Jonathan, Kenneth purchased a small maintenance company that became Workright Property Services in 2001.
Today, Ken and Jonathan have grown Workright into a mid-size construction company and Plumbing Contractor servicing Southern California. Workright offers the full range of tenant improvement and contracting services, and has gained distinction for its accomplishments with apartment renovations. With nearly two decades of construction knowledge, Ken continues to apply his passion for real estate investing to understand his client’s needs and expand Workright’s offerings to meet them.
Ken holds a degree from University of Arizona. Ken spends his free time with his wife and two kids as well as mountain biking, skiing, and playing tennis.
Jonathan London, CFO/COO
Jonathan brings years of financial experience to his oversight of Workright’s operations. His career began in banking in Texas, where he was an auditor and accountant before moving to New York, where he was an Executive Vice President in the family clothing business. During this time, he partnered with his brother Ken to build one of the nation’s largest apartment relocation businesses. Following other pursuits including a number of jointly-owned properties, Jonathan and Ken joined forces to create Workright Construction. Today, he manages daily operations and financing for the company, which has renovated thousands of apartments and condos to date, and contributes to the ongoing growth of Workright’s distinguished client base. In his spare time, Jonathan loves to golf, ski, hike and travel with his son.
