Within Campbell County, he has been a member of the Campbell Leadership Action Group since 2003, serving its Chairman for two years. At Northern Kentucky University (NKU), he has served on the NKU Foundation Advocacy Committee, the Construction Management Advisory Board, the Haile/US Bank College of Business Dean’s Advisory Board, was an adjunct faculty in the Physics and Geology Department, has been a proud supporter of Norse Athletics, and a strong advocate for NKU in Frankfort.

Within the region, he is a member of the Duke Energy OH/KY Advisory Council and recently served on the Metropolitan Club Board of Governors. He is an alumnus of both Leadership Cincinnati and Leadership Kentucky and has spent countless hours serving on various committees for the Northern Kentucky Chamber, most importantly as a member of its Board of Directors, serving as Chairman from 2016-2017.

He has served on various committees, as well as the Board of Directors for Northern Kentucky Tri-ED and was recently named Chairman during a time in history when Tri-ED is undertaking a significant transformation to help the region grow.
