In a recent interview, we had the privilege of chatting with Kevin Cushing, a seasoned entrepreneur with an impressive background in the print industry. From being named Print CEO of the Year in 2011 to founding his own company, Breakthroughs LLC, Kevin has had a remarkable journey in the world of print.
Kevin’s entrepreneurial spirit became evident early in his life. From owning a pub on his college campus to venturing into the fast-food industry, he displayed a knack for business and a unique ability to build and lead teams. His experience in running Hardee’s restaurants equipped him with valuable insights into efficient management and the importance of customer experience.
After nearly two decades in the fast-food business, Kevin decided to explore a new path. In 1995, he moved to Minneapolis and founded a print business, even though he had no prior experience in the industry. His dedication, coupled with a focus on team building and customer relationships, led to the success of his print operation.
Kevin’s journey continued as he took on leadership roles in prominent print brands, including AlphaGraphics and Allegra. He played a pivotal role in navigating the industry through significant transitions, such as the shift from offset to digital printing and the rise of web-to-print solutions.
Kevin’s encounter with EOS came at a crucial time when his businesses needed a strategic boost. EOS, an Entrepreneurial Operating System, provided a structured approach to growth, execution, and team dynamics. Recognizing its potential, Kevin implemented EOS across several companies, witnessing positive results even during challenging times like the pandemic.
Recently, Kevin founded Breakthroughs LLC with a specific focus on EOS. As an EOS implementer, he helps businesses strengthen their vision, execute strategies with discipline, and enhance team health. EOS, with its emphasis on alignment, accountability, and engagement, proved instrumental in achieving record results for businesses under Kevin’s leadership.
