US Industries

With a background in various industries that cross both public and private sector, Kenn brings a rare skills set to Cisco. His understanding of innovative technologies and how they can impact the daily lives of those who use them has led him to focus on the end goal of improving quality of life in our communities.

Kenn has served as a former instructor of design at Campbell University, holds a Master Degree and license in Landscape Architecture with experience in large scale government and private development projects, and is a former small business owner. Through these disparate skills, he has learned to tell the story of America’s Digital Transformation in a way understandable by all; by breaking down complicated concepts and architectures into more visually comprehensive images and narratives.

From Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), Edge/Fog Computing, and Cloud Computing, Kenn offers a unique perspective to Cisco’s US Industries customers on how digitization can impact them for the better.

Once his work day is done, Kenn enjoys spending time with his wife in the beauty of Creation (hiking and gardening) and serving his community through various organizations by providing stewardship over their resources.
