Kevin Ledgard | Chief Financial Officer
Kevin serves as the Chief Financial Officer for Urban Street Angels, as well as its social enterprise start-up 8 West. With 20+ years of progressive experience in the areas of financial planning and analysis, corporate strategy and development, mergers and acquisitions, and start-up business operations, he joined USA in 2014 to accelerate the scale, scope and impact of its mission to end youth homelessness. During his tenure, the organization’s revenue has increased by over 2,600% with stable, recurring revenue from government contracts as the principal growth driver, along with grants from private and public foundations.
Before joining USA, Kevin held senior positions with several high-growth companies in the technology, media, information services and retail sectors. Among his professional accomplishments, he has been a critical part of management teams that have collectively raised over $2.3 billion in equity and debt financing over the course of his career. On the transaction side, he has been extensively involved in the successful execution of several acquisitions and joint ventures. He also co-led the sale via multi-stage auction process of a 65-year-old privately-held company to a private equity firm. The resulting $110+ MM transaction extracted maximum value, yielding an ROI exceeding 500% for its principal shareholders (within a period of four years).
Kevin received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (concentration in Finance) from the College of Business Administration at San Diego State University. He also attended the Pepperdine University School of Law.
