Kevin Brown

"Kevin entertains, inspires and challenges people to show up every day and make a positive difference at work and in life!"

Kevin’s unconventional path to business and personal success has taught him that winning in business and in life requires anything but conventional thinking. With his blue-collar roots, a street-wise aptitude and a never-quit attitude, he worked his way from the front lines in business to the executive boardroom. For nearly two decades Kevin was a sales and marketing executive that helped grow a little-known family business into an industry giant with annual revenues reaching two billion dollars.

After 30 years in franchising, Kevin decided to retire from corporate America and pursue his passion for bringing The HERO Effect™ message to as many people and organizations as possible. Kevin is on a mission to help people and organizations embrace a simple philosophy that separates world class organizations and high performance people from everybody else. He is passionate about helping people expand their vision, develop their potential and grow their results. And, as the father of an autistic child he knows firsthand how the principles of true success reach beyond the boardroom and into the lives of real people facing the challenges of everyday life.
