Kevin serves as the Smart FM Solutions Product Director for the GWS Enterprise line of business, leading a team of Subject Matter Experts who develop, promote and support CBRE’s Asset Management and Maintenance Delivery processes, tools and services – global, differentiated, simplified & standardized – that deliver measurably superior performance outcomes and value to CBRE’s clients.

Simply put, Technical Excellence results from the adoption of these best-practice tools and processes for asset lifecycle management and maintenance set-up, optimization, planning, and work execution, delivering cost reduction, sustainability benefits, improved service quality, reduced risk and increased uptime for clients.

Kevin joined CBRE as 2014 after 24 years with a major pharmaceutical company, fulfilling a variety of global leadership roles during this time. As Smart FM Solutions Product Director for the GSK account, Kevin was responsible for delivering Integrated Facilities Management (hard, soft and laboratory services), Workplace & Occupancy, Energy and Project Management services across 33 sites worldwide, comprising data centers, manufacturing, vaccines, offices, R&D and clinical trials facilities, more than 30 million square feet, and with over 900 ‘on-account’ employees worldwide. Over $10m cost savings and 9% energy reduction was achieved during Kevin’s two-year tenure in the role.

In 2016 Kevin transitioned as GAD to lead Portfolio Strategy & Optimization, Project Management, and Integrated Facilities Management (hard and soft) services for Mondelēz across 197 sites worldwide in 63 countries, with 40 million square feet under management, comprising Manufacturing sites, R&D sites, Warehouses and Commercial Offices. Seamless transition of 184 new sites into the CBRE portfolio was achieved over an 18-month period, the majority of which were first generation outsourcing, with the 750 strong operations teams comprising a balance of staff transfers and new recruits. Over 4 years circa $76m of facilities management savings were delivered and $127m of cash was released from the portfolio optimization program.

In 2020 Kevin moved into GWS Operations Support Services to take up his current Smart FM Solutions Product Director role.
