Kevin is a successful business builder, investor and executive.

Previously, Kevin was Vice President of KPS Capital Partners, a family of investment funds with approximately $5.5 billion of assets under management.  KPS makes controlling investments in companies across a range of manufacturing industries and is known for working constructively with management, labor, and other stakeholders to revitalize businesses experiencing a period of transition or significant challenges.  During his nine years at KPS, Kevin was part of the core deal team on five investment platforms across the Automotive Parts, Metals Processing, Consumer, Healthcare and Textile Products industries.  Collectively, these investments created thousands of jobs and built strong, sustainable businesses.

Kevin lives in Haverford, PA, with his wife Kate, their golden retriever Marlowe and cattle dog rescue Winston.  Since he was nine, Kevin has spent his summers camping and canoeing in Northern Ontario, Canada – which is also where he met Kate.  Kevin volunteers for the Sierra Club and BARC Animal Shelter, and he ran his first marathon this past November, raising over $8,000 in proceeds for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a summer camp founded by Paul Newman that caters to children with severe illnesses.

In his spare time Kevin plays golf, softball and basketball… poorly.
