“Kevin stood out among the candidates for CEO through his work at Kimball and impressive reputation in the industry,” said Norman Young, Chairman of Industrial Opportunity Partners, a private equity firm that assumed ownership of Polyvision in 2020. “It was clear he was the ideal fit for the role, and we are excited for the positive impact his leadership will bring as we usher in a new era for the organization.”
