After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree and lettering in basketball for four years at Davidson College, Kevin decided to start his business career here in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1983 he started in Commercial Real Estate when he joined the Kuester Companies as a Leasing Agent for the Law Building on East Trade Street. In 1984, he was offered a Leasing Manager position with the Koger Center, a 750,000 square foot, 10-building, mid-rise suburban office park in East Charlotte. In 1990 he was named Center Manager for the office park.
In 1994, Kevin joined Crescent Resources Commercial Development Division, Duke Power’s former real estate subsidiary, overseeing its 1 million square foot commercial real estate portfolio that included Retail Shopping Centers, The Coliseum Centre Office Park and three Industrial Distribution Parks. Within six years, the Commercial Development Division at Crescent Resources had added over 4 million square feet of office, retail and distribution properties to the commercial portfolio. Over the next three years, the commercial portfolio was acquired by J.P. Morgan’s Asset Management Division, while Crescent Resources Asset Management group retained the leasing, management and future development responsibilities in four different business parks (Crosspoint Industrial Park, Lakemont Business Park, Lakemont Industrial Park and Air Park West), where Kevin was President of the four POAs. By 2003, Crescent Resources had become the largest Real Estate Development company in North and South Carolina.
During his 19-year career with Crescent Resources (now Crescent Communities) Commercial Division, Kevin focused on Commercial Leasing and Sales; Property Management and the development of office, retail and distribution projects across North and South Carolina.
