Keith C. Baker
BA, MSA, MHR

Keith C. (Keith) Baker is President of KCB Associates, a highly diversified personal counseling, business consulting and  corporate training company based in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.

Keith was first commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force via the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) in 1973. He then spent the next 20 years of his professional life as an Air Force officer, primarily in the Comptroller field. During his career, he served in a number of important financial management and leadership assignments both in the United States as well as overseas.

For example, from 1978 to 1982, Keith supervised a staff of seven instructors who designed, developed and taught all basic and advanced officer and enlisted Cost and Management Analysis training for the Air Force. During this assignment, he had overall responsibility for new course development and maintenance, as well as personally teaching complex financial and business concepts to literally thousands of both US and allied military officers.

Over half of his Air Force career was spent at the Aeronautical Systems Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, where he served in several key Comptroller positions. In these assignments, Keith successfully implemented emerging automated program network and project management concepts into a wide variety of ongoing aircraft development and modification efforts worth several billion dollars. This included a number of modification projects on the B-1 bomber and F-117 Stealth Fighter as well as KC-10 and KC-135 aerial refueling aircraft.

Soon after his retirement from the Air Force in 1993 (after a full career) Keith founded KCB Associates. Since that time, Keith and his growing staff of professionally trained consultants have provided "helpful help" in the form of targeted training courses as well as "hands-on" consulting to numerous small to medium-sized companies throughout North America.

However, far from being just another "detached" corporate consultant, from 1994 to 2003 Keith served as a member of the Board of Directors for AMSAT The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation. AMSAT is a non-profit, 501(C)(3) educational and scientific corporation of over 5000 members based in Washington, DC. Keith also served the corporation as it's Executive Vice President from 1994 to 1998 before then taking a turn as AMSAT's President from 1998-2000. He's once again serving the organization as its Corporate Treasurer.

Currently, AMSAT's ground and space-based corporate assets are worth well in excess of $200 Million. The organization has used predominantly donated resources and volunteer labor to build and launch over 35 Amateur Radio satellites into Earth orbit since 1961. During his time as a senior elected official of the Corporation, Keith's "hands-on", expert leadership and oversight of an international team from over 14 nations helped assure the funding, construction and successful launch of the largest and most expensive Amateur Radio satellite ever built...AMSAT's Phase 3-D. The satellite was later re-named AMSAT-OSCAR 40 once it was successfully launched in November, 2000.

Keith graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Earth Sciences (Geology) from the University of New Hampshire in 1973 and holds both a Master of Human Relations (Psychology) degree from the University of Oklahoma, and a Master of Science Degree in Administration from Central Michigan University.

He is a graduate of the Air Force's Cost and Management Analysis School, Comptroller Staff Officer School, Technical Instructor School, Professional Military Comptroller School, Squadron Officer School, and Air Command and Staff College. He is the recipient of the Air Force Commendation Medal and was decorated with the Meritorious Service Medal three times for outstanding achievement.
