“I’m humbled to be a part of such a creative and dynamic team with its deep roots and industry proven thought leadership. I look forward to what we’ll achieve together.”

Kevin’s career has been a dynamic progression, from his beginnings in creative services including graphic, web, and communications design, to a number of management and leadership level positions. In that capacity, Kevin joined GNU as President and a member of the firm’s leadership team. He works alongside Phil Murphy as the firm prepares for its transition to the third generation.

Kevin’s education in graphic design led to his complete immersion into project creativity and implementation. His early experience was multi-faceted with clients from a broad spectrum of businesses and products. During his 15-year tenure with a full-service advertising agency, his positions evolved through Director of Creative Operations, EVP of Operations, and ultimately as Chief Operating Officer.

Kevin discovered early on his aptitude and joy for managing people and effortlessly made the transition from managing creative projects to managing creative teams. In his position at GNU, he is responsible for all aspects of the firm’s professional, financial, administrative, and client service performance.

When I’m not at GNU:

– Hitting the dog park with his golden retriever
– Enjoy active involvement in his church
– Working on latest home improvement project
