Tatjana Deegan
We worked together  •  General Sales Manager KGSR & KBPA, Emmis Communications. Previously General Sales Manager KHPT, Cox Radio.
I'm proud to vouch for Kevin and think he'd be a great entrepreneur because what you see is what you get, he's a no nonsense guy. He's not a ... fraid to try new things, and he can get people to come along. People loved working with Kevin, and they wanted to do well for him. There's no drama with him, yet he knows how to have fun while working. He's super organized and efficient with his time. I loved working with Kevin. It was a huge loss to our organization when we lost him. I absolutely vouch for Kevin!
Julie Obleski
We worked together  •  National Sales Manager, Emmis Communications. Previously Sales Account Manager, Emmis Austin Radio.
Kevin's experiences in project management lend credibility to business development. He asks thought provoking questions, does his research ... and sticks to budget/project deadlines. He delegates and is focused on delivering/exceeding expectations. He communicates and driven to deliver creative, custom solutions.
Christy Dedear
We worked together  •  Senior Acccount Director, Emmis Austin Radio and MARKETING REP, Sinclair Broadcast KGSR/KROX.
Kevin is a natural born leader with the ability to bring together people and ideas and put them in to action
Sebastian Pfeiffer
We worked together  •  Account Executive - KGSR, Emmis Communications. Previously Account Executive - KPEZ, iHeartMedia.
Kevin is one of the most dynamic leaders with whom I've ever worked. Kevin's team has always loved him and he manages in a way that is very ... even and makes people want to work hard for him. His ability to manage events and deal with venues, clients, music talent, city employees and city organizations, contract works, etc. is second to none. Kevin was able to grow Emmis Austin Radio's non-traditional business consistently and creatively. I personally loved to bring him on appointments as his sales ability and his ability to think on his feet are both incredibly strong. We worked very well together. Not only was Kevin a great manager here, but he was the kind of guy with whom I wanted to see a show or grab a beer. The void he left has proved difficult to fill.

Kevin is a forward thinker who puts his skills and intelligence into succeeding in everything he does. He has an immediate positive impact o ... n others and his surroundings.
