“As a longtime member of TEAM Coalition, Aramark is committed to working together to support responsible fan behavior through trainings and fan programing. As fans return to stadiums and venues need to train their staff, it’s great to see TEAM recognized for being an industry leader in alcohol management training.”

Kevin’s Mission Moment with TEAM
With over 20 years in the stadium & arena business, Kevin relates extremely well to the front line employee needs, training expectations and client perspectives, making him uniquely qualified to lead the training committee. With the new online training portal launching, Kevin’s ability to connect with managers, employees & clients across the country will allow for feedback to be registered, considered and implemented.
Kevin’s association with TEAM Coalition goes back over 20 years, when he participated in his first TEAM Training class. A recent mission moment for Kevin occurred in February 2021 when TEAM Coalition was brought up on an Aramark conference call. Another Aramark General Manager for a football stadium shared their success with TEAM’s online employee certification product. With fans returning to stadiums, venues need to train their staff. To date, ten Aramark components have successfully utilized TEAM’s online employee certification product.

US DOT / NHTSA 2019 NATIONAL DATA:
- In 2019, 10,142 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 5.3% from the 10,710 fatalities in 2018.
- Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
- Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol and fail to buckle up.
