Kent joined Master Services as its Chief Financial Officer in March of 2018 after moving to the Knoxville area in late 2017. Previously, he had a more than 40-year career as an accounting and finance professional for various private and public companies in the construction, chemical, manufacturing, import, and wholesale industries, with an early career in public accounting for one of the largest CPA firms in the world. He earned his BS in Accounting from the University of Tennessee at Martin, and his MBA from Christian Brothers University. He currently holds the CPA designation in Tennessee and is a Chartered Global Management Accountant.
The passion for community and wowing the customer is what attracted Kent to Master Services.
He and his wife, Laura, have been married for more than 40 years. They chose the East Tennessee area after finding a church they liked in Maryville, TN. The proximity to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park was an added bonus for the couple, and you will often find Kent fly fishing for an elusive trout.
