40 Under Forty: Keith Reardon

Erika Sidor
At the Mercantile Center in Worcester are 40 Under Forty winners (from left) Francisco Torres, Keith Reardon, Greta Bajrami Campoverde and Jody Staruk.

Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, Reardon co-founded Commonwealth in 2010 with Brian Pelczarski, transforming the firm from credit and debit processing to assisting with accounts receivable for clients ranging from entrepreneurs to multinationals, opening offices in New York, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C.

Reardon serves as co-chair for the Central MA Coalition for Suicide Prevention and is a community advisory board member for Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Suicide Prevention Program. An avid fisherman, he lives with his wife, Elaine, and son, Tom.

How do you define success? Growing our offices to where we have robust teams, first-class offerings, and are great stewards of our communities.

If you spoke at a college graduation, what would the message be? Every graduate should work hard now on creating their own ideas. Those on the edge of starting their own business need encouragement.
