Kevin has over 20 years of experience in leading integration, both in the US and in Europe. He was the first Director of Acquisition Integration at Sun Microsystems, where he directed all integrations worldwide while managing cross-functional teams, designing the Integration Management Office and staffing the organization. His merger successes include JCP, Star Division, InnoSoft, MaxStrat, JavaStudio, ChorusOS, Procom Systems, NetBeans, Dolphin Systems, Pirus Networks, HighGround Systems, DSS, and Solaire.
He also has served in a consulting capacity, where he led the IMO for SunPower’s acquisition of Solaire. The project enjoyed an increase of 38 percent “favorable” rating, leading to a nomination for an Excellence Award. After SunPower, he was asked by Abry Partners, a major private equity firm, to lead the simultaneous integrations of HealthWyse and TherapySource (a carve-out) into Casamba, a health-care management software provider. He successfully organized and drove the Integration Management Office and provided stylized updates to the executive staff. Based on his success with Casamba, Abry placed him into another portfolio company, where he successfully led the integration of Vigillo into SambaSafety.
Kevin has presented integration best practices at private workshops and participated in cross-industry panels on integration with technology leaders such as Cisco, Intel, and Microsoft. He has led major integration projects for large publicly traded companies, privately held companies, and PE-owned platform companies.
