Kevin started his career in Virginia Beach Virginia working for sales and marketing companies Waves Marketing & Platinum Vacation Services providing tours and selling Vacation Ownership Packages. Kevin quickly worked his way up through the ranks and became the Vice President of Sales for Waves Marketing and Platinum Vacation Services. Kevin was hired away from those companies by Fairfield Resorts in Williamsburg, Virginia, Fairfield's flagship location and top producing property, as their Director of Marketing. Fairfield, at that time, was the largest resort company in North America in terms of customers. In less than two years at that position, near the end of 1999, Kevin was promoted to Fairfield's corporate office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as the Director of Welcome Center Operations where he traveled four out of five weeks to various Fairfield Resort locations throughout the nation. Kevin was hired to implement many of the profitable systems created while at Waves Marketing and Platinum Vacation Services and were improved while in Williamsburg. Cendant, a multi-billion dollar holding company acquired Fairfield and consolidated the corporate offices to Orlando in 2001. Shortly thereafter the events of September 11, 2001 took place and changed the landscape even further. Kevin decided not to make the move to Orlando as his then wife did not want to relocate under the circumstances and with kids in school. The economy abruptly took a turn for the worse because of the effects of 9/11/2001. Kevin decided to get into the mortgage business and started his career at Florida Mortgage Funding in Fort Lauderdale. Kevin excelled at Florida Mortgage Funding, got his mortgage broker’s license, and quickly took a job with Nations Mortgage. Within the first eighteen months at Nations Mortgage Kevin became a manager at one of the Nations Mortgage offices located at their headquarters in the Coral Springs Financial Plaza in Coral Springs, Florida. Kevin did very well the first month and was in that position just a few months when a branch manager position came available at the Lake Worth, Florida branch. Lake Worth was the the first office opened and consistently finished in last place amongst the other Nations Mortgage offices. Kevin decided to take the position as his wife did not want to move and this was the closest branch, a forty-five-minute drive. In Kevin’s first month at the helm, the Lake Worth office finished as the number two office in loans and number one in revenues. The second month Lake Worth was the number one office in both loans closed and revenues generated. For the next eight months Lake Worth maintained its position as the top office. Kevin decided to make a move to Port Saint Lucie, Florida, with the intentions of opening his own mortgage company. It was not long after that the market conditions abruptly changed in the mortgage industry Th conditions were not favorable. Kevin started selling telecommunications in 2007 at One Source Communications in Pompano, Florida. It was not long before Kevin was selling T1’s, PRI’s, various phone systems, shortly thereafter, Fiber Optics, SIP, Hosted PBX, Dedicated Internet Access, and more through Verizon and AT&T. Kevin established a presence in the Hospitality industry selling solutions to primarily Marriott, Hilton, and IHG brand hotels in early 2015. Those three hotel groups attribute to about two-thirds of the hotel rooms in the world. Kevin was invited by the Verizon Global Executive Team for Marriott Hotels to be part of their team in 2015 In 2017 Kevin started KB Logix Business Solution. KB Logix Business Solutions now has access to over 300 of the world’s top business technology service providers. In 2020 during the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, KB Logix Business Solutions started KBL e-commerce, the offspring of KB Logix Business Solutions. The idea was to establish more of a digital footprint to utilize all the benefits todays technology has to offer from a marketing perspective and future-proof the business plan moving forward.
