Kent Zelle 
Founder, CEO


A summer kid who didn't want to leave, Kent brings a love for “local color”, the environment and 14 years in Consulting and company building to the Nauset Rental team. Prior to founding Nauset Rental, he studied at MIT, helped grow a consulting company from 20 to 200 people to a successful exit as part of the senior leadership team and worked with Fortune 100 clients like Best Buy, AT&T, Verizon, Zerox, Blue Cross, etc. However, helping vacation homeowners lever innovation, best practices and technology previously accessible only to the Fortune 500 has been the most fun by far. He is super passionate about building a company based on Cape Cod that is innovative, tech-enabled, and family owned (no VC $) with high-end customer service. This is a long-term venture as he relies on Nauset Rental to manage his own rental home and those of friends, family and neighbors. 

Favorite Beach:  Nauset (of course, I was a lifeguard there in the 90s)  
Favorite Ice Cream: Ice Cream Cafe and Sundae School
Favorite Secret Spot: The various un-trafficked conservation areas across the cape. There are so many trails and beautiful quiet spots (even in the height of summer)!
