I am passionate about commitment. I believe every talent I have should be used to make a difference. ~Ken Beam

As President, CEO, and founder of Pegasus Logistics Group, Ken Beam never wavers on his commitment to clients, employees, and community. That commitment has allowed him to build a successful business and impact the community in many positive ways.

As a leading logistics and supply company responsible for shipping products all over the world for industry leaders such as Nissan and Hewlett-Packard, Pegasus Logistics Group has thrived over the past 18 years. Ken credits the company's success to its dedication to customer service and a true appreciation for employees and clients. Pegasus Logistics Group has been named one of the Best Places to Work in the Dallas Metroplex area.

In addition to a savvy business sense, Ken has a talent for leadership and networking. He has combined his strengths to serve in numerous roles, including Chairman of the Board for the North Texas Chapter of the Young Presidents' Organization (YPO), which was internationally recognized in 2011 as the "best of the best" chapters among 16,000 members. Ken also co-founded the Maverick Chapter of the World Presidents' Organization (WPO), a global network that promotes leadership through high-powered networking and idea exchange.

Ken has garnered numerous industry awards, such as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2000 and the American Society of Transportation & Logistics Partnership Award.

When Ken is not in the office, he dedicates his time to a variety of organizations close to his heart, including The Beam Foundation. Since creating the foundation with his wife, Darla, the couple has raised and donated more than $500,000. He received the Volunteer of the Year Award from the American Lung Association in 2005 and recently took on the role as Vice-Chair for the Boys and Girls Club. His philanthropic passions continue to motivate Ken and the legacy he hopes to leave.

Ken lives in the Dallas Fort Worth area with his wife and their three beautiful children.
