Have you met Kevin? He has been at Single Source in two different eras: first in the late 90s as a consultant, but since his children were young, he opted to choose a job with less travel. In 2014, he came back to us, and we couldn't be happier!
Kevin is a great cook and spends a lot of time coming up with new masterpieces in his Big Green Egg. Every year, we look forward to the smoked deliciousness he shares at the company's holiday pitch-in! His big family news earlier in 2017 was that his youngest son, Marshall, graduated from New York's Webb Institute: a unique, top-ranked undergraduate institution offering the single academic option of a double major in naval architecture and marine engineering. Andy and Sarah are Kevin's two older children. He and his wife of 32 years, Jennifer, love spending time spoiling their three granddaughters: Grace, Chloe, and Charlotte.
Check out his thoughts on working at Single Source as an Implementation Consultant!
Getting the opportunity to understand the customer's business, employees, and the challenges they face. It’s a real chore for companies to change an ERP system, and seeing the light of understanding come on in people is great.
What's your philosophy regarding your approach to your work?
Be flexible and never panic! We can work through anything together.
What's the most important career lesson you've learned?
Never forget that the people we work with usually are doing two jobs: they are changing over a system AND trying to run a business.
Any cool client moments that stick out in your mind?
I spent a lot of time In Michigan this year, and a client sent me to a local photography gallery at lunch one day. We got to talk to the photographer/artist for a while. When I got back to the hotel that night, I noticed virtually all the art at the hotel was right out of the shop. Amazing work. You can see it on Facebook!
