Gerald Kelly

As founder and owner/operator of Ultimate Bathroom Renovations, Gerald is a true service inspired entrepreneur at heart. Having moved here in 2004, Gerald immediately fell in love with Nova Scotia and began building a life and home here. Prior to starting his own business,


Gerald spent over 12 years in senior management in the telecom industry, where his love of business developed. In 2007 he purchased a BathMaster franchise, and with a single laptop and a branded polo shirt, the story began. Over the years, the business shifted away from a product based business toward a client based service. This allowed for a much broader scope of beautiful, practical, and unique products for each client’s specific project, whether humble or grand.


He takes great pride in his company and his amazing team, and feels fortunate to be able to provide such an excellent service. Gerald is disciplined, hard working, and very energetic. When not working on the business, you will find him engaged in his favourite activities which include competitive motocross, large scale landscaping and home DIY projects. He is also an avid outdoorsman and finds great solace and inspiration when in nature.
