About Kevin

Family: Originally from Southern California and came to Boston for college, where I met and married a New England girl, Deirdre, my wife of 39 years. We lived in Northern California and The Netherlands for twelve years after college, then New England won out. Our family moved to Andover in 1996 and enrolled our son and daughter, Brian and Caitrín, in West Elementary School. Now, Deirdre is a middle-school ELL teacher in Lowell, Brian is an energy consultant advising the US DOE on efficiency regulations, and Caitri╠ün is a VA hospital rheumatologist. We have five grandchildren.

Education: Mechanical Engineering and Business Management degrees from MIT.

Occupation: After a career leading international technology product and service businesses, mainly focused on measurement, sensing, and controls, I now work as an independent consultant and investor supporting other business leaders.

Approach: I am naturally curious and ask challenging questions: how does it work, what are the success measures, what are the alternatives? I am respectful while direct, to-the-point, and plain-speaking, trying to remove unnecessary complexity. I love meeting and exchanging ideas with everyone. I prepare and do my homework, wanting to see and hear first-hand. I genuinely appreciate other cultures and viewpoints, a benefit of many years of international work.

Personal interests: Time with family, travel, reading, sailing, jazz saxophone, and dark chocolate.
