The following is adapted from LinkedIn: With over a decade of professional experience, I’d consider myself somewhat of a jack of all trades in the design field. Cutting my teeth in print and later moving to interactive design, I’ve worked hard for both small startup type companies, as well as global agencies and picked up a lot along the way. I also pride myself on injecting some often much needed personality into the every day office life that becomes mundane. I’ve met and worked with some great people along the way and look forward to where technology takes us as we move forward with new ways of visualizing the growing wealth of information we have access to.
Kevin resides with his wife, Beth, in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

Joe was first appointed as Chapter Advisor for Delta-Beta (ΔΒ) Chapter of ΣΠ Fraternity in August 2003. Prior to graduating, Joe served as (ΔΒ Chapter’s Sage (President) for two terms during 2001 and 2002. He also served as the Social Chairman, Fundraising Chairman, Community Service Chairman, Risk Management Chairman, and Assistant New Member Educator. Outside of ΔΒ Chapter, Joe was a member of several honor societies and served as the President of the Inter-Fraternity Council at Monmouth University.
Once he was appointed Chapter Advisor, Joe focused on several core programming items including developing and then improving on the Chapter’s tradition of excellence, upgrading all areas of chapter operations, alumni development, and fundraising for chapter scholarships and other purposes. In support of these efforts, he joined with several other alumni to found the Jersey Shore Alumni Club in July 2004. Further, in support of his efforts to raise money to support the active chapter’s academic and educational pursuits, he created the ΔΒ Chapter Educational Fund with the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation in December 2005.
For his efforts, Joe was recognized with Sigma Pi Fraternity’s Lyle H. Smith Award for Most Outstanding Chapter Advisor for both the 2002 – 2004 biennium and again for the 2004 – 2006 biennium. In August 2006, Joe was appointed to serve as New Jersey Province Archon, making him responsible for all of the chapters and alumni clubs across the state. His efforts in building the New Jersey Province into a powerful region of the Fraternity were recognized when he was awarded the Justice Curtis G. Shake Award for Most Outstanding Province Archon for the 2006 – 2008 biennium. In August 2008, he was also elected to serve a four-year term on the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation‘s Board of Trustees. He served as the Foundation’s Treasurer from August 2010 through August 2012. He did not seek re-election when his term ended so he could spend more time developing the programs at ΔΒ Chapter, where he resumed his role as Chapter Advisor in 2010.
Joe, again, served as Chapter Advisor until August 2016, when he was elected to serve as the Grand Second Counselor (Vice Chairman of the Board/National Vice President) of Sigma Pi Fraternity’s Grand Council. In 2018, Joe was elected as Sigma Pi Fraternity’s Grand Sage (Chairman of the Board/National President), marking the first time that a ΔΒ Chapter alumnus was elected to the Fraternity’s highest position. Joe filed to run for re-election as Grand Sage, marking the first time in 70 years that a Grand Sage filed to run for a second term. He was unopposed in this effort and served a second term as Grand Sage through the 2020 – 2022 biennium. He is currently serving on the Grand Council as the Immediate Past Grand Sage.
Joe works for a statewide, nonprofit loan fund where he and his team manage just under $1 billion in community investments around New Jersey. He focuses on providing financing to charter schools, early care centers, colleges, supportive housing, commercial projects, and small businesses located in economically distressed areas across the state. He is also a Lecturer at Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on leadership, ethics, strategic management, and business analysis, among other topics.
