Entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of KJK Sports, LLC, Lafayette, IN
Kevin is the Founder and CEO of KJK Sports - a business that has recently launched two start-ups in 2019. The first company is Blue Radar Search - an online search firm targeting jobs and advancement of NCAA and high school athletic coaches. The company launched in January and has a robust database of more than 50,000 coaches and athletic directors. Blue Radar Search helps coaches build their online profile, better branding their assets to find jobs and candidates that best suit their needs.
The second company is KJK Registrations - an online registration and website company for athletic camps of all sports and ages. This is the second time Kevin has entered this arena, having previously founded SDI Camps & Races, LLC in 2008. SDI grew quickly and was acquired by Stack Sports in August of 2016.
Locally, Kevin has been a volunteer with the Wabash Township Fire Department for 17 years and currently is in his first year as Deputy Chief and the 13th as a line officer. The WTFD responds to more than 1,200 medical and fire calls annually. He has also participated in many different sales presentations, mock interviews and group discussions with classes at Purdue and the sales staff at the Purdue Exponent (of which he was the Sports Editor during his undergrad days as a Boilermaker from 1993-97). Kevin's family includes his wife Holly, also a Purdue grad and an associate director of recruiting and advising in the College of Pharmacy, as well as 12-year old daughter Kari and 10-year old son Bryce.
