Kevin Hagan, President & CEO
Kevin Hagan brings an impressive background in food distribution and operational management to his new role as president and CEO of Feed The Children. He also comes with a keen passion to help those in need of life's essentials around the world.
Most recently, he served as chief operating officer for Good360, an Alexandria, Virginia-based nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling the needs of nonprofits with corporate product donations.
While there, he was responsible for day-to-day operations including customer service, human resources, security and compliance, and distribution logistics. His accomplishments include the consolidation of the charity's warehousing network, reducing costs by 50%, and the creation and development of a customer-focused environment through the implementation and support of a call center. In addition, he oversaw the operational transformation required to move the organization from paperbased processes to an innovative online delivery platform and established a security and compliance department to ensure the use of product donations aligned with donor requests.
Before Good360, Kevin honed his industry expertise at U.S. Foodservice, Inc., the second largest broadline foodservice distributor in the country with more than $20 billion in revenues, at the time. Following a near one billion dollar accounting fraud, he joined the company as the director of corporate ethics and training where he led a variety of successful training and cultural transformation initiatives to help safeguard the organization from future risk of fraud. He later served as the head of corporate communications where he managed the company's internal and external communications, and branding initiatives. He served as the company spokesperson during significant operational changes including downsizings, plant closures, and union negotiations.
Kevin also spent time in the government sector at the U.S. Postal Service headquarters, an organization with more than 800,000 employees, at the time. For nearly 10 years he worked as an innovative national level manager overseeing several transformational initiatives and organizational restructures to increase operational efficiencies. A career highlight during his tenure was the development of a shared services Human Resources center in Tampa, Florida to centralize the processing of nearly 7,000 Postal Service HR complaints and investigations. The center, built in record time and within budget, improved the speed of investigations by more than 200 percent and significantly decreased processing costs. Contracting with other federal agencies, the center has become a model operation for the Postal Service and has been recognized as an innovative best practice in government.
Kevin received his bachelor's degree in History, Political Science, and German from Mercer University in Georgia. He earned his master's degree in International Affairs from The American University in Washington, DC.
He currently serves on the board of directors for Academy of Hope, an adult education nonprofit in Washington, DC.
