Memphian. As in resident of Memphis. Yes, it’s a word. And yes, Kevin is one.
And while it’s true he was born in Charlotte, he lived most of his life just south of there in the other Carolina. Or God’s country, as he affectionately calls it.
As co-founder of LEO Events, Kevin has over 25 years of diverse and progressive sales and marketing experience in the tourism, entertainment, and high-profile service industries. In other words, a whole lotta know-how for a whole lotta years in a whole lotta ways. He excels at strategic planning, marketing assessment, sales analysis, brand positioning, negotiating and product development. And a couple of times, he’s even done all of those things in one day.
Being in the business this long has afforded him many things. One of the most rewarding has been the opportunity to co-found and chair the Jay Uiberall Foundation. He’s also chaired, served and continues to serve on various boards of many industry-leading organizations.
When he’s not busy changing the industry for the better or shuttling his boys between basketball and soccer, he’s taking in the great outdoors via a bike ride or hitting the links. But then again, he could be dabbling in the culinary arts or cheering on his Clemson Tigers or watching professional wrestling. Yes, you read that right. Guilty pleasures.
We’ve all got ‘em.
