After over three decades in commercial business leadership, Kevin made the choice to switch gears. In 2008 he founded the Cogent Partnership, fulfilling his passion to partner with leaders to create successful outcomes. His innovative and unconventional approaches have been helping current and future leaders across the world succeed ever since.
Kevin held leadership and Partner positions in companies such as Procter and Gamble, KPMG Consulting, Inforte Corp, and IBM Global Business Services. His current clients include some of the most prestigious and demanding organisations in the world.
Having qualified in Business Studies in the UK, Kevin continued his professional development through various programmes in the USA and Europe, including at the IMD in Switzerland. He’s learned from some of the world’s most accomplished psychologists and business leaders, picking up certifications in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching and the Roche Martin Emotional Capital psychometric. Whilst working at Inforte Corp, he also had the opportunity to work with – and learn from – Professor Michael Porter of Harvard, one of the world’s most influential thinkers on management and competitiveness.
Kevin’s deep belief in the value of Business Counsel led him to engage Professor Marcus Alexander, Adjunct Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship of The London Business School, as his own Counsel. Marcus introduced Kevin to LBS, where he’s been a valued guest speaker on their Mergers & Acquisitions Programme, providing a practitioner’s perspective.
