Negotiating a successful merger or acquisition takes more than expertise and experience. It also requires deep focus, serious goal-setting and the strength and stamina to go the distance. Fortunately for Renaissance clients, they get all that in Kevin – a fitness enthusiast who’s completed a half marathon, full marathon, Olympic triathlon and the challenging Tough Mudder obstacle course. He cycled across Canada in November 2013, raising $160K for Movember Canada, and has also gone skydiving.
Kevin brings a diverse background to Renaissance, serving as an integral member of the Mergers and Acquisitions division. His experience working with businesses in a variety of industries ranging from hospitality to construction has proven invaluable when it comes to acquisition planning, divestitures, business strategy and business transition.
Before he joined the Renaissance Mergers & Acquisitions team, Kevin worked in Hong Kong at a web development agency, later opening a Vancouver satellite office. He then moved into a sales and business development role with a local Vancouver-based consumer packaged goods company. Today, he sits on the board of numerous charitable organizations including Prostate Cancer Canada’s Western Canadian Advisory Board. Kevin holds a BBA from Simon Fraser University in Finance and Marketing where he was the Captain of the Varsity Men’s Basketball team for 4 years. Kevin also holds a Masters of Business Administration from the University of British Columbia with a specialization in finance.
This glass-half-full guy is also a co-founder of the Vancouver-based Whisky Wisemen, a not-for-profit organization that won the Notable Award for Best Not-For-Profit in Western Canada. Kevin and his wife Jeannine currently reside in Vancouver and are proud parents to their little boy, Adrian Shaw.
