Mike Kegley | Founder
A graduate of the University of Kentucky, and a Veteran, Mike Kegley has over 30 years of experience as a C- level executive in multiple business sectors including banking, healthcare, wholesale distribution, software sales, and services delivery. With adult children involved in the racing industry, he eagerly invested in MediVet Equine, which was created in 2013 to manufacture and distribute scientifically based biological therapeutics for performance horses. Shortly after he retired from fulltime business in 2016, MediVet Equine had grown to the point it needed experienced leadership at the helm and he assumed the role of CEO in 2017. In that role he guides the salesforce, manages the company’s finances and engages with clients.
Jeremy Delk | Founder
Jeremy Delk has been a successful entrepreneur for over a decade, with a keen eye for innovative new products, technologies and unexploited market niches. He utilized the financial acumen he gained in the financial sector, with Fidelity Investments, while working in both Boston and NYC, to incorporate Delk Enterprises in 2002. With the growth of Delk Enterprises, Mr. Delk made the decision to move back to his native Kentucky focusing on the growth of his company. Over time, Mr. Delk expanded Delk Enterprises from primarily a real estate holdings firm to a diversified private equity portfolio including equity holdings in animal health, sports medicine, human health care, pharmacy & creating access to future IP through strategic investments in technology and human health R&D initiatives. Today positively disrupting healthcare through portfolio companies and other strategic investments is where his primary focus lies. His expertise and experience in the world of biological therapeutics has guided the scientific investments MediVet Equine has made and continues to make.
