Kevin Alexander, operations manager for K&K Glass, served in the United States Air Force for over 22 years. During his tenure, he held positions as director of operations, student squadron commander and chief of intelligence systems requirements with assignments to U.S. Central Command, Officer Training School and Defense Intelligence Agency.

“I was fortunate to serve as both an enlisted airman and commissioned officer and used those early experiences to hone my leadership style and approach,” said Alexander. “The Air Force instilled in me the core values of service before self, excellence in everything we do and integrity first. I firmly believe if you embody these values, you’ll see significant success in all endeavors.”

During his military career, Alexander was afforded many opportunities to lead and guide others. The skills he developed have made him invaluable to Driven Brands. He now works as an operations manager for K&K Glass, where he provides leadership development, mentorship and guidance to all employees. 

“I’d like to thank Driven Brands for the opportunity to be part of something bigger, something that matters — a place where teamwork is valued, leadership is appreciated and meritocracy is embraced,” Alexander said.
