Kevin grew up working for the family construction business in Eugene, Oregon. He helped build barns in junior high school, houses in high school and public works structures in college. After earning an Industrial Engineering degree from Oregon State University, Kevin relocated to Portland. Forming a construction company and enjoying the challenges that went with it was a natural progression.
As an analytical thinker with an even tempered personality, running a construction business offers Kevin the perfect balance and satisfaction of creating structures and building strong relationships with clients and employees.
In his spare time, Kevin passionately pursues the sports of kiteboarding, cycling and mountain biking alongside his wife and daughter.
Mario’s fascination for how things work began while he held a flashlight for his father, working on cars or building something in the garage with his two brothers. It was no surprise when Mario headed to Kansas State University to acquire his Mechanical Engineering degree and expand on his obsessions.
After college Mario worked in the automotive industry as a Project Engineer. He soon realized what he enjoyed most was being hands on and seeing something built from start to finish. The coordination of all the trades it took to implement a construction project intrigued him, and soon Mario found himself working for an architect doing design/build projects. Next, Mario wore his nail bags and led a crew as a superintendent for a high-end custom home builder and remodeler in La Jolla, CA.
After relocating to the Pacific Northwest, Mario joined the 2KG team. This role was the perfect fit; Mario looked to Kevin as a mentor to teach him the business side of construction. Several years later Mario and Kevin partnered to lead 2KG and expand the business.
When he’s not working, Mario enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, cooking, cycling, and kiteboarding in the Columbia River Gorge.
