Hi, I’m Kevin! As the founder of MonsterMegs I oversee all executive operations. Having held the position for just over 9 years, MonsterMegs has grown substantially in that time and forced me to adapt and relearn the industry many times over. I am responsible for all vendor partnerships, business forecasting and working directly with customers to learn what MonsterMegs does well and how we can improve.

Spread the love
