CEO & RESEARCH DIRECTOR
Kevin's focus is on devising and recommending research strategies and solutions that work. He loves sitting down with clients and learning about their marketing challenges. But the one thing he loves even more is figuring out how his clients can overcome those challenges through smart research.
Kevin is a research veteran (not that we’re implying he’s old or anything) having worked in the marketing research industry his entire professional career. His passions are social, brand and advertising research and he has a penchant for website usability and user experience research. He loves pushing industry boundaries and is forever using technology to make research better. Kevin is truly dedicated to the craft - ask him about almost taking a bullet to ensure quality data collection. Seriously.
Kevin is a graduate of the University of Brunel in England and is a dedicated member of the American Marketing Association where he currently serves as president-elect for the Oklahoma City Chapter.
Aside from producing music in his spare time, Kevin can frequently be found taking way too long to complete simple home DIY projects and wrestling with his Basset Hound. He’s fixated by outdoor grilling, contending he can grill anything.

Stewart works with Evolve’s clients from start to finish to ensure research plans are carried out smoothly and accurately, which is no small feat. His quest is to make everyone happy. He uses his abilities to manage several projects with quick-thinking creativity to make sure that happens.
Stewart began his career in marketing research as an intern at Evolve, quickly became our project manager and now serves as our research manager.

Stewart holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and an MBA from Oklahoma Christian University. Outside of Evolve, he loves cycling, hiking, snowboarding and rappelling off cliffs. (Seriously, he’s intense.) Originally from New Orleans, he was a New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers fan before it was cool. And yes, he spells it GEAUX.
As a company so focused on our clients’ success, we hire only the most professional, dynamic and passionate people. Each member of our staff brings something unique and valuable to the table. What we have in common is our commitment to each other, our clients and curiosity, because curiosity is what keeps our noses down and ears open.
We are small by design and take our reputation very seriously. Clients always come first and we will do whatever it takes to deliver accurate, quality results. We are marketers who partner with other marketers to make big things happen. Our employees need to be resourceful and able to solve problems with very little guidance.
Another guiding principle at Evolve is shattering the notion that research is dull and boring. After all, how can something that gives you the power to improve be boring?
