After graduating from Simon Fraser University, Kevin relocated to Calgary where he has spent the majority of his working life.  His career has spanned 17 years in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry with Tier One companies such as General Mills, National Sea Products, and Nestle.  Through a broad range of responsibilities from Field Representative to National Trade and Product Marketing, Kevin's background in CPG is substantial.  Kevin left the packaged goods industry to become a principal owner in a manufacturing company managing their sales and marketing to a global agency network.  After successfully selling the company, Kevin indulged his long held desire to put his skills to use in the world of executive professional recruitment.

With Kevin's background in CPG, Manufacturing, and Recruiting, he brings to MacDonald Search Group a strong understanding of the Oil and Gas infrastructure of Alberta, years of experience in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry and the perspective of a small business owner.  His unique position in the Calgary market will make him a valued resource for any client or candidate.

Kevin is familiar with keeping multiple balls in the air as he is the proud father of three grown children and as a coach and volunteer with Calgary Minor Soccer.
