Co-Founder & Director
Kevin co-founded Plastic Expert in 2010 after witnessing first hand the large volumes of plastic waste going to incineration. His passion for solving real life problems and scaling businesses has been a key factor in the sustainable growth of Plastic Expert. His role within the company now focuses on strategy, growth and marketing to help attract new customers.
Outside of work, Kevin is building an off-grid eco home in rural Portugal with the aim to bring a former 23 acre Quinta (farm) back to life with its own water, food and energy supply. A real life example of sustainable living!
