SCC Names Kevin Carr New Vice President of Administrative Services
Burlington, IA - Southeastern Community College selected Kevin Carr to be the new Vice President of Administrative Services. He started the position on January 2.
Previously, Carr served as the Executive Vice President of Mutual Medical Insurance Services in Davenport, Iowa. Before that, Carr was President of Two Rivers Insurance Company in Burlington for 14 years.
Carr is prepared to work in an institution such as SCC. Carr says one of his biggest achievements was growing a primarily local business, Cady Insurance into Two Rivers Insurance, boosting its outreach across Iowa and surrounding states. The business expansion created over 130 new jobs for the community.
Although this is his first position in higher education, Carr is no stranger to SCC. “I have seven brothers and sisters, and we all attended SCC. It’s a great college,” says Carr.
Carr brings with him over 20 years of community leadership. Carr served on the Great River Medical Center Hospice Advisory Board, the Burlington Civic Music Association Board, and the YMCA’s Executive Board.
Carr realizes his new post at SCC will come with challenges. “I plan to utilize my private sector background in finance and insurance in my new role. And thanks to everyone here at SCC, I’m getting up to speed. It’s been a great process.”
Interim Vice President Dick Springsteen will work with Carr through January to help with the transition.
SCC President Michael Ash underscores Carr’s qualifications. “Kevin has the knowledge and leadership to help us as an institution,” says Dr. Ash. “We hope to leverage his connections with area businesses and communities as we move forward,” says Dr. Ash.
Carr says he is excited to join the SCC team. “We have great instructors, staff, and leadership at SCC and I look forward to working with everyone.”
