Kevin’s teams of software engineers, architects, analysts and testers make (and for testing purposes, try to break) the technology and infrastructure that buttress every aspect of Candid. This includes internal and external systems, ecommerce, security and IT support, to name a few. His team also develops and maintains Candid's product offerings in conjunction with Candid's products team.
Kevin leads Candid’s Business Systems & Intelligence, Software Engineering, and System Services departments. Previously, he was Foundation Center’s director of technology integration, managing the Business Insights and Systems Services teams.
Kevin brings more than 20 years of experience as a software developer and systems architect. He started his career as a custom software developer at PEC Technologies from 1999 to 2010 and was assistant technical manager at MacauSlot (China) from 2008 to 2010. He joined KPMG in 2010, where he became manager of development. In 2014, he joined Slalom Consulting as solution principal before joining Foundation Center. While at Slalom, Kevin served as the technical lead for the design and build of Foundation Center's Enterprise Database Management System (EDMS).
Kevin has a B.S. in computer science from Grand Valley State University, during which time he spent a summer studying intensive Japanese at ICU in Tokyo that sparked a desire to spend more time abroad. As a result, he studied Mandarin Chinese at Beijing Language and Culture University from 2006 to 2007 and lived in China for three more years. Because of these experiences, he brings an international perspective to his role.
