Not-for-Profit & Governmental Regional Industry Partner
Little Rock
Kevin Kemp, 37, joined BKD in 1993 after graduating from the University of Central Arkansas with a business administration degree and has been with the firm ever since.

His first assignment was with the not-for-profit and government service team, and he has 16 years of experience in audit and management consulting to municipalities, utilities, state agencies, private colleges and other entities that receive government aid.

"I get the opportunity to help social service organizations in their mission," said Kemp, whose official title is Not-for-Profit & Governmental Regional Industry Partner for the South Region. "It's a great way to contribute to the community."

As a regional leader, he has oversight of nonprofits in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Mississippi, helping clients with large prospects and with keeping up with changes, as well as with staffing issues. He has helped clients obtain tax-exempt financing as well as analyze expansion opportunities.

Kemp is a member of the Government Finance Officers Associations in Arkansas and Texas, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Arkansas Society of Certified Public Accountants.

He serves on the boards of the Arkansas Rice Depot and the grant-making BKD Foundation and on the allocation committee of the United Way.
