As CIO, Kevin has been focused on performing a comprehensive review of Maxim's current systems, resources, and infrastructure.

Before joining the Maxim family, Kevin worked for Maxim's sister company, Allegis Group. While there, he held a variety of leadership roles over the course of 17 years. Ten of those years were as the CIO. As the CIO, he led the implementation of the company's IS Management System and IS Governance management processes. He also managed the company's efforts to redesign critical back office processes and systems and led the IS Department through several restructuring initiatives designed to create greater visibility of IS services.
