Kevin got his start as a young entrepreneur in the early 80’s when he invested $25,000 and launched Quantum International. This turned into a $500 million per year business on the New York Stock Exchange and drove the stock price from $1 to $20 per share. After selling his interest in Quantum International, he formed a joint Venture with the Home Shopping Network, called HSN Direct, which grew to hundreds of millions of dollars in sales. Entrepreneur Magazine has called him one of the “Top Entrepreneurs” of our time.
