Management Philisophy

Centers on accountability, problem solving and opportunity discovery at every level throughout the entire organization

Kevin has extensive experience in business start-ups, acquisitions and performance turnarounds as well as leading organically growing businesses which surpassed industry leading benchmarks. His management philosophy centers on accountability, problem solving and opportunity discovery at every level throughout the entire organization, and supported with comprehensive measurement, review and recognition processes to ensure execution stays on track.

Associates Philosophy

Associates at all levels should always be a business’s most treasured strengths

Kevin will always be first to say that a company’s associates at all levels should always be a business’s most treasured strengths, but truly capitalizing on this strength versus just “managing” are two different approaches with very different results. Ensuring the right people are in the best positions to succeed while supporting them enthusiastically and recognizing their successes continuously is what leadership is about.

Passion for Business

Helping other businesses succeed

As the Founding Partner of Accelerant Growth Principles, Kevin’s passion is now to see other businesses, his firm’s clients, succeed in ways that perhaps they did not believe could be achievable, or overcome obstacles that may seem impassible.  He is once again establishing a leadership team of proven and highly experienced professionals that share these same values and passion to help other businesses succeed. In the end, the success of Accelerant Growth Principle’s clients is the only measure of this business’s success, and its reputation on achieving this means everything.
