His ability to lead a team, develop, manage, and maintain relationships with owners and architects, and a proven project-success record resulted in his advancement from Assistant Project Manager through the ranks of Project Manager, Senior Project Manager, Project Executive to finally reaching Vice President of Operations.

After resigning from Brice in December 2013, Kevin launched CLEMENT BUILDING COMPANY, LLC along with his twin brother, Keith Clement.
