January 1, 1931
Ken Alm was one of those high talent, attractive, enthusiastic young men that Roger Brown hired in the early 1950s as part of a program to build the Chicago roster of sales representatives through good recruitment and effective training. Ken grew up in the business with his father, heading a small personal account brokerage firm in Chicago. Ken built a high quality personal account business and began to work with Charlie Ritter to service institutions, especially in Cincinatti and other parts of Ohio. Ken resigned from Becker about 1930 and joined Willlaim Blair, shortly after which he suddenly and unexpectedly died.
