Kevin Smith

Kevin was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA.  After graduating with a Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Notre Dame, he moved to Houston to start his career with Exxon Chemical company. He progressed through a variety of leadership assignments in manufacturing, project, and business management.  He retired from ExxonMobil Chemical after 35 years in 2016.  Kevin met his wife, Elda, shortly after arriving in Texas.  They have two daughters who both attended St. Agnes Academy and Notre Dame.  The Dominican connection from St. Agnes drew Kevin to the Dominican Family of Houston, where he served as Chair from 2016-2019 and led an update to the Dominican Family’s strategic mission.  On a personal note, Kevin has become an accomplished handyman, marathon runner and skier, and remains a struggling golfer!  Kevin continues to enjoy giving back to the community through his Parishes, the Knights of Columbus, and the Dominican Family.
