Since 1985, Tremont has played a critical role in the development and success of SRC.

Under Tremont’s leadership, the company expanded from 950 employees to more than 1,500 (projected by the end of the year); revenue went from $220M to $365M; and SRC significantly increased partnerships with community organizations.

Chairman of the Board, Don Kerrick said, “Kevin is uniquely qualified and well-positioned to lead SRC to continued success. He brings great dedication, passion, and motivation to his new duties. His 33 years of service as COO and in various divisions and functions, gives him the insight needed to lead the company to the next level — elevating SRC’s reputation for solving problems of national and international significance.”
