Michael L. McKenny
President / CEO
Michael is a St. Petersburg native. Born and raised right here in the city where he decided to bring his business to. A student at Wellington School, Bay Vista Elementary, Bay Point Middle, Gibbs High (P.C.C.A.), and Florida Southern College (Lakeland, FL) Michael truly grew up right here. In addition to SpeedPro Michael serves as Minister of Music at Bethel Metropolitan Baptist Church. He served a full term on the Board of Trustees for Great Explorations Children’s Museum and continues to be a large supporter of Great Ex. He also is a supporter of JDRF Tampa Bay, the Bill Edwards Foundation for the Arts, Feeding Children Everywhere, American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
Michael has been married to his high school sweetheart (Holly) since 2002 and they have two children together. He is a Buccaneers, Lightning and Rays fan through and through.
After working in the corporate world for 15 years he knew it was time to grow and “build something special”. Something where he could be a larger part of the business community but also a larger part of the St. Petersburg community. That’s when SpeedPro St. Petersburg was born.

Holly (Hollipop) was born in Wilkes-Barre, PA but is a true Florida girl in her heart. She has been living in the Sunshine state for about 26 years. She attended and graduated from Gibbs High in St. Petersburg and married Michael McKenny and had two fabulous girls. Taylor and Ashli.
She went on to earn her degree at Southwest Florida College
She then decided to answer the calling of serving our country and enlisted in the United States Army Reserves. Upon completion of duty as Specialist spent about 10 years in the insurance industry. In December of 2016 she joined the SpeedPro team full time.
And who can forget her BFF?!? Her Australian Cattledog Madison (aka MooMoo)
Family time, friends, traveling, beach and having fun is her motto. And Hollipop never met a cruise she didn’t love.
