He joined Prevalent from BeyondTrust, where he led a successful turnaround that doubled the company’s revenue. Kevin joined BeyondTrust by way of the company’s acquisition of eEye Digital Security, where he served as CEO and Chairman. Prior to joining eEye, Kevin was CEO of NetPro (a prior investment of Kennet Partners – managed by the Savant Growth team), a leading vendor of Microsoft infrastructure optimization software.
