Kevin Pickhardt

CEO

Kevin programmed his first computer, an Ohio Scientific, in high school in 1979. The thrill of that experience started him down a path of continual discovery that he maintains to this day. A student of nearly everything in his life, Kevin believes strongly in the value of endless learning. He is constantly taking on projects around the house that begin with taking things apart that he may not be able to put back together. He often has a similar strategy with his golf swing.

Whether it’s alone or with friends, Kevin enjoys playing golf — something that he can never master. He is especially proud of his wife and two daughters and the laughter they share.

“I am most proud when I see my colleagues growing and enjoying life with each other, and when I hear that we have made life a little easier for our clients. It is my goal for Pharos to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of everyone we touch. Anytime I see that promise being delivered it is a good day.”
