    Kevin has been in procurement for 20+ years, in both private and public sectors. Currently, he is the Director of Contracts and Procurement for the San Mateo County Transit District in San Carlos, California. He and his team are responsible for developing and administering the District's procurement policies and procedures, and all procurement activities.


    Kevin's thoughts on learning... 1) You're never too old to learn. 2) It's forever. No one can ever take that knowledge away from you. 3) Learning should be fun (your brain may experience a bit of pain, but it's temporary). Kevin is an active member at the Northern California Chapter of NIGP, where he is serving as the Chapter Vice President; and at the National level, where he is a Certified NIGP Instructor. Kevin has served on committees and on the Board of the OPPA Chapter of NIGP (Oregon), including serving as the OPPA President during FY2008-2009. Also, he has served as the Vice Chair of the NIGP Member Council.


    Kevin graduated from the University of Oregon (Eugene, Oregon) in 1993 with BAs in Finance, Marketing, and Psychology. GO DUCKS!


    Kevin lives in the Bay Area in California. He is married to Kelly for over 25 years. They have two children, Ethan (20) and Abbie (18).
