Kevin is council liaison to the Transportation Commission and represents Bellevue on the Eastside Transportation Partnership Steering Committee and the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Transportation Policy Board.

In his professional life, Kevin is president and chief operating officer of Wallace Properties, a Bellevue-based commercial real estate company. The National Association of Industrial and Office Properties named him 2012 Developer of the Year for his development of a LEED-certified (environmentally friendly) community center in Snoqualmie and a LEED-certified multifamily mixed-use project in Seattle.
