Kellam Mechanical President, Scott Kellam

Scott Kellam’s home comfort industry experience dates back to 1977 as a teenager when he began working with his father and grandfather in their HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing and hardware family owned businesses, Kellam and Eaton and Princess Anne Plumbing. Scott achieved his Business degree from Elon University in 1983 then returned home to continue contributing to his family run businesses. In April of 1995 he decided to launch his own company, and started Kellam Mechanical out of his Virginia Beach home. He has also obtained his Master’s Degree in HVAC and Electrical from the Virginia State Board of Contractors.

In 1998 Scott’s wife, Sarah Kellam joined the team. Together they grew the business enough to need a commercial office with warehouse space to operate productively with the growing departments and management teams. In 2007 they built the current Kellam Mechanical location in Virgina Beach and the new building was opened October 1st, 2007.

In 2016 Scott and Sarah Kellam were honored to accept the National Contractor of the Year Award by the PHCC (Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors) association.

In 2020 Scott Kellam was humbled to accept the ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) Skip Snyder Humanitarian Award for his history of community involvement.

Desiring more expansion, the Plumbing department was added to the list of home comfort solutions in 2017.

Industry involvement is essential to staying in touch with trade advances, so Scott has proudly served on many boards to be able to bring his team the latest educational requirements to handle equipment technology updates and best business practices. This allows Kellam technicians to deliver accurate and effective home comfort solutions for their customers. Community engagement is also super important to the Kellams.
