Kevin brings more than two decades of public and private sector experience helping people and communities achieve their disaster recovery and resilience goals. Over the course of his career, Kevin has successfully built and led large, inter-disciplinary teams in a range of complex and demanding environments across multiple levels of government. This includes leading post-disaster recovery planning initiatives, integrating and leveraging Federal disaster recovery programs, and designing resiliency policy and planning projects for national and local level partners.

In his role as the appointed Federal Coordinating Officer and Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator for multiple disasters, Kevin has led critical efforts to help States and local communities achieve their desired recovery outcomes. These include the development of Puerto Rico’s Economic and Disaster Recovery Plan after Hurricane Maria, leading the Federal Government’s interagency recovery support to West Virginia after their June 2016 floods and the FEMA Region III COVID-19 Interagency Recovery Coordination Task Force.

Kevin’s work in the private sector has helped a variety of clients achieve their intended resilience, recovery and capacity enhancing outcomes. Working closely with the Louisiana Recovery School District, the Orleans Parish School Board and FEMA, Kevin authored more than $1.5 billion in Public Assistance (PA) grants to support the school system’s recovery from Hurricane Katrina. The obligations of these grants, which included the largest ever single FEMA PA grant at that time, required the application of innovative approaches across a diverse set of stakeholders to support the implementation of the school system’s disaster recovery plan.

Kevin’s proven ability to innovate and deliver in the fields of disaster recovery, resilience, and planning provides the broad foundation necessary to help clients tackle the complex challenges that arise when the unexpected happens.
