Before starting a Leadership and Diversity & Inclusion talent development firm Kevin honed his leadership skills in three Fortune 100 organizations; Bank of America (MBNA), Target and U.S. Bank (5th largest bank in the US). Kevin has had responsibilities that span the globe and reached as far as Spain, Ireland, England and more. He's led Six Sigma for Target Financial Services, the Target Corporation subsidiary responsible for Target's bank, the Target Card and Target Visa. Clients benefit from his process improvement and change management background. He's also led Product Development, Segmentation and Strategy for all non-mass retail banking products at U.S. Bank.
At the tip of the spear for bringing LGBTQ Banking to U.S. Bank, Kevin is familiar with the introduction of change and astute at influencing in uncharted and uncomfortable waters. It's where he often finds himself because it's simply Kevin's unconscious competence. Driving change is where he's most comfortable. With signature responsibility for all Marketing for the Retail Bank, he vividly recalls the looks on the other executive's faces around the table as they previewed one of the first takes on the LGBTQ Banking's marketing campaign, "Straight Talk For Gay Money."
If nothing showed Kevin the similarities of people previously, running the bank's Product and Strategy Divisions for the underserved community and the affluent community simultaneously certainly did.
In his "spare time" he also created the first diversity-focused internship between U.S. Bank and Howard University after dropping his daughter off as a freshman and realizing U.S. Bank was not represented amongst their peer banks. The accomplishments are plentiful. We've specifically chosen these examples as a result of the current times and where our Nation is on race relations.
True to form, when Kevin sees a need, he fills it. And that's what led to the creation of Aeriis Insights Group.
