Kevin joined Keppie in 2009 to lead the Marketing and Business Development functions of the company.

Previously Kevin spent over 15 years working in Marketing, Communication and Design agencies and was a Founding Director of one of Scotland’s largest advertising agencies, The Morgan Partnership. He then moved to the Client side with Scottish Power plc, spending two years as Corporate Communications Manager before spending six years in the role of Brand Development and Marketing Services Manager. Prior to joining Keppie, Kevin added an international dimension to his career when, for six years, he took on the role of Sales and Marketing Director for Forbo Group, the world’s largest flooring manufacturer.

His hobby (up until a few years ago) was as a professional football referee and he spent 16 years officiating in the Scottish Premier and Scottish Football Leagues, 10 of these at Grade One level.

Kevin says:

“The key to success in marketing and business development is understanding the needs of your customers, clients and partners.  To do this you have to listen to them.  You'd be surprised how few businesses apply this simple logic!”
