Meet KCHA

Kevin Preston

As a Senior Development Manager, Kevin Preston has had an enormous impact on the redevelopment of two former public housing developments in White Center, now called Greenbridge and Seola Gardens. These award-winning, mixed-income, master-planned communities have been catalysts for reinvigorating White Center, transforming obsolete subsidized housing projects into vibrant, economically diverse communities, consisting of rental and homeownership opportunities. The word “community” is operative; these are not just housing developments. Kevin has spent 15 years at KCHA working on the design, permitting, and construction of these two communities. He grew up in the area and was motivated to remove barriers and assist residents in their pursuit of upward mobility and develop communities that anyone would be proud to call home. He also serves on the board of Greenbridge Association, helping to manage the community and provide services for residents. Before joining KCHA, Kevin worked for HUD and as an affordable housing development consultant. He has also owned a real estate development and investment company. Kevin has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Arizona State, and master’s in Education from Washington State University. He’s an avid sports fan, but is partial to Arizona State. He’s into fitness with weightlifting, hiking, yoga, and golf. He also enjoys comedy, live music, and travel. Kevin is active in his community as a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
