About Us

KES is short for knowledge + execution = success

I support executives, management teams and boards of directors who want to get stronger results and get new levels of performance. This results-focused approach positively impacts both the individual and the organization.
I work primarily with organizations under 150 employees with a focus on Credit Unions and other 501 (c) organizations. It’s been an honor to work with CPA firms, automotive care companies, credit unions, CUSO’s, magazine publisher, tanning salon and optical business, hospital CEO and other entrepreneurs plus I served as lead facilitator of leadership development for a chamber of commerce.

My company is a development and performance implementer that only has your interest and goals in mind. I am not a consultant and I don’t sell anything. My informational approach to gathering information and identifying core issues in your business, plus the follow up and processes, provides results and value.

Contact me to learn more about how I can assist you in achieving the results you desire.



Tom Randle, Chief Encouragement Officer and Founder

After 29 years as a Credit Union CEO, plus ten years as a consumer finance executive, and with an active role in state and national credit union organizations, I believe and have empathy and knowledge of your challenges. I have been a volunteer on numerous boards of directors such as CUES, the Florida Credit Union League and its committees, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Sarasota Coalition on Substance Abuse and Florida CU Shared Services to name a few. After my credit union career was cut short by the great recession in 2009, I served as interim-executive director, Sarasota Habitat for Humanity.

Since relocating as far away from a NCUA or State of Florida examiner as possible, I have dedicated myself to charitable causes such as Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), the Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Board, as an ordained Elder in my Church, a Rotarian and being active in my community. I am living my dream of dwelling in small town America on top of a mountain, working with clients who are persons of integrity and genuinely want to make positive changes. Let me help you realize your dreams.

I earned the designations of Certified Business Coach, Certified Chief Executive and Certified Credit Union Executive. I am a founding member of The Institute of Sustainability and Certified for the Administration and Interpretation of Attribute, DISC, and Values Indices. Oh yea, I earned a BS Degree in business on the GI Bill after serving in Vietnam.
