Key Powell, the owner and primary operator of Key Security Services, is a second generation Locksmith that has more than 25 years experience in the field. Key started learning locksmithing from his father in his early years, but expanded his knowledge and experience by obtaining a Masters in Business Administration and spending some years managing both Condominiums, Apartments, and Homes making him a specialist in the needs of community associations. Key’s dedication to customer satisfaction and staying on the cutting edge of current technology has made Key Security Services the premier locksmith in the Naples/Collier County area.
Key moved to Naples with his family in 1980 and grew up spending time in his father’s locksmith shop in the downtown district. Key attended St. Anne’s Catholic School and Gulfview Middle School and filled summers volunteering at the local library, Naples Community Hospital, and the Conservancy. At age 11, Key was hired for his first job at Wynn’s Family Market (then on 5th Ave South). After graduating from Naples High School in 1995, Key joined the Merchant Marine and worked on coal boats on the Great Lakes in order to save for college. After a year with the Merchant Marine, Key moved to Gainesville, Florida and started working on a Masters in Business Administration degree. He met his wife, Ruth Ann, at a small college church and returned to Naples to begin his career in Property Management overseeing communities like Lakewood, La Peninsula, Bear’s Paw, Arbor Walk, and Emerald Bay. After a few years, Key’s father’s entrepreneurial spirit drove him to start his own locksmithing company which quickly grew to be the premier locksmith in Naples. Key’s family has also grown to include Jonathan (7), Cynthia (4), and David (1).
