Kevin Carey is on the move, filled with energy, enthusiasm, working with vision and purpose. I won't be surprised if this episode soars to number one.
Kevin is a Christian, husband, father, son, friend, mentor, coach, speaker, construction entrepreneur, executive, and more.
Kevin grew up in the Chicago area, on the south side and suburbs. His father was (and still is) a union caulker, so Kevin figured he would go into the trades after high school. However, his mom wanted him to at least apply and consider college. Following the lead of a friend, Kevin applied and was accepted by Illinois State University.
After graduating with a degree in business and entrepreneurship, Kevin entered work-life. Starting at Menard's, he moved quickly from there into the specialty subcontracting business with D & M Architectural, then Alliance Glazing, then Dynamic Glass, rising from entry level to business development and eventually to the level of Executive Vice-President, in only 15 years. In September of 2022, however, Kevin left Dynamic Glass and went full time with the company (I say movement) he founded and created, Mountain Movers. Kevin provides coaching, mentoring, email news letters, workshops, planning, speaking and more. Kevin is the host of 17Twenty Podcast, on air since 2020. Kevin is active in TEXO and is currently Chairman of the Board for the non-profit Texas-based construction organization.
I am grateful to have had an hour + of Kevin's time. I think you'll enjoy the conversation. It really hits the center of the Creating Structure Podcast content and audience. Oh, and Kevin will soon be publishing his first book. There's more, so you'll just have to listen.
