Kevin is a graduate of UC Berkeley in 1976 and has worked at Mead Lumber, the family business, since he left college. He started stacking lumber, then ran the yard and eventually became President.
Kevin grew up in a hunting family and starting hunting at the age of 6. He hunted quail, deer and ducks in California. He soon moved on to big game and hunted plains game in Africa in 2007 and in New Zealand in ’05 and ’06. On his Africa trip, he was fortunate enough to hunt with his wife and had both parents there too.
Past Mzuri Safari Wildlife Foundation President Jim Codding (Kevins’ godfather) invited Kevin to join the board of MWF in 2002 after he attended several of the dinners. Kevin states that MWF really “hits all the buttons” for him. Between wildlife conservation and encouraging more youth and women to enter the shooting sports, the Mzuri Wildlife Foundation is one that Kevin believes is more important today than it ever was.
Kevin has proudly served four terms as Board President and remains very proud of the work the organization does.
