Keith Campbell founded Campbell & Company in 1972 in Towson, Maryland, and has served as its chairman of the board ever since. He was president until January 1994 and was chief executive officer until January 1998.[1]

The company is a commodity trading advisor with approximately $3.8 billion under management. Campbell was among the first to get a public fund up and running and to educate customers about managed futures.
