These efforts are connected by a shared commitment to make the power of innovation and entrepreneurship more accessible to those that can benefit from them the most. This work is defined by helping people and the organizations they support better understand and deliver value using a comprehensive systems approach.
Kevin’s greatest learning and experience with innovation was forged while working at one of the world’s largest aerospace companies as an enterprise leader of multiple innovation teams. In this role, Kevin conceived, developed, and scaled a small pilot program into a company-wide network of connected employees and businesses that spanned the globe.

His perspectives on value creation were further enhanced when Kevin spent two years in the corporate venturing group, where he was responsible for early stage pipeline development and acceleration.
