Founder, Chairman & CEO

Kevin is currently CEO of WeLink. Previously first as VP of Technology, then as Chief Strategy Officer, he developed both the technology and go-to-market strategy for Vivint Internet, one of the highest capacity fixed wireless networks deployed in the US. 

He pioneered using mmWave technologies and small cell micro- pop network architectures, combined with a crowdsourced site acquisition model that reduced small cell deployment costs and time to market by greater than a magnitude of order. 

This model was field proven with many thousands of sites deployed commercially in multiple US states, in what was one of the largest small cell fixed wireless deployments in the US. 

Kevin is recognized as a thought leader in this industry and as early as 2005 correctly predicted the trend to small cells, mmWave, and other key 5G technologies. With 10 issued patents and over ten years of experience, he has successfully solved what today still remain the key challenges to mmWave 5G deployments.
