Joseph Ashford Ellis is a London-based entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist. After working his way up the ladder from regular employee to the founder for several companies in different industries, including investment strategies, he founded K4 Global, a company that continues to grow and thrive.
Ashford was not handed his success. He describes his childhood as unconventional, difficult, and full of challenges. Later in his life, he lost his mother, father, sister, and brother-in-law all within a year’s time. He believes those adverse experiences helped him become the successful person he is today.
K4 Global, founded in 2014, is a company that provides worldwide services such as Public Relations, Strategic Marketing, and Event Management, and more, to the film, music, and entertainment industries.
Ashford has built a reputation of trustworthiness. He views those who work with him as his team and feels a team approach has been essential to the success of his company. His background has inspired him to also provide clients crisis management, asset protection, and security through K4 Global.
Many clients have provided testimonials about the value of K4 Global. One high-profile client states, “I highly recommend K4 global. The multiple areas covered by K4 allowed me to use one company for all my needs, which was perfect.”
Not only is Joseph Ashford a highly successful entrepreneur, but he is also a philanthropist and family man. Through the tragedy of the loss of his family members, he says he learned the importance of making every minute count. He says that everything he does, he does for his children. They are his world, and he wants them to have the things he did not have when he was growing up.
One example of Ashford's philanthropy is The Butterfly Foundation, which he established after he learned about the plight of a young boy who suffered from a rare genetic skin condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). There is no known cure. The Foundation provides financial support to those who suffer from the condition in the hope of improving their quality of life. It also provides education to others in order to create a social awareness of the condition.
