LTC Kevin Beagle, US Army Retired, is Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of The Ironsides Group and brings over 25 years of leadership experience to the team.  Founded on the principles of leveraging the latest technologies in the telecom construction space, Ironsides has emerged as a market leader.  As the CEO, Kevin oversees the creating, planning, and implementation of the strategic direction for the company.  Additionally, Kevin leads the Iron Innovation (I2) lab, a company initiative to develop and deploy new technologies in support of the ever-evolving telecom sector.

During his 20+ year career as an Army Officer, Kevin served in every leadership position, culminating as a Squadron Commander for a Reconnaissance unit with over 600 Soldiers assigned. He has multiple worldwide combat and operational deployments including Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Somalia, the Balkans, and the Pacific Rim area of operations. In addition to the combat deployments, Kevin has been chased by a pack of rabid dogs in Cambodia, robbed by a band of small children in Kenya, and hit in the head by camel dung in Kuwait (twice). Needless to say, Kevin’s “resiliency”, unique experiences and leadership attributes serve the team well. 

When Kevin is not commanding Ironsides, he enjoys taking orders from his wife and three daughters, yelling “FORE” on the golf course and giving trout another day in the sun. 

Kevin holds a BS from Montana State University, a MS in Business & Public Administration from Central Michigan University and is also a graduate from the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
