Kevin moved into healthcare in 2008 whilst also holding a local government cabinet portfolio from 2006 with responsibility for policy covering safer neighbourhoods, and economic regeneration at his borough and county council working across place and system levels. Retiring from front line politics in 2014, he focused on his NHS career working for commissioning and provider organisations including Specialised Services leading regional teams with a strong focus on clinical audit, service improvement and stakeholder management as Director of Commissioning and Contracting.
Before moving into politics and healthcare, he held several different management roles across further education delivering apprenticeships and vocational training programmes to employers before that holding senior project management positions with software company’s and telecommunication firms after leaving the Army following a 14-year military career as a Developed Vetting (DV) Telecommunications Engineer responsible for ICT architecture of high-grade crypto information and communication assets designing complex data interrelations operating on private terrestrial and satellite systems.
He is passionate about helping people and communities thrive with a strong interest in technology and how this and access to education and services can support families and the local economy to thrive. He has learnt a great deal about charities since leading First Steps ED in 2019 as CEO and previously as Trustee from 2015.
His career over the past two decades has been focused on contestability in market economics when at Derbyshire County Council he led England’s most successful Trusted Trader scheme as a direct response to protecting the county’s frail and elderly households from rouge traders by creating an accreditation scheme for residents to buy with confidence, quality and good customer satisfaction from registered businesses resulting in an increase in GDP and GVA for Derbyshire.
In healthcare, he has taken First Steps ED’s strong community links, great services, and the support it provides to families and individuals to become recognised as the Midlands Eating Disorder charity and expanding its reach further afield. Those opportunities to become larger than the sum of its parts, is focused on building new relationships and social capital far wider than NHS eating disorder pathways and today includes working closely with schools, colleges and universities, and youth and community groups by becoming available to more people including those left behind.
