WGK Team

Kevin Hines, PLS

Survey Manager

Kevin is a U.S. Navy veteran that entered the land surveying industry in 1996.  His knowledge and application of magnetic compass systems, inertial navigation systems, and global positioning systems made the transition into his second career seamless.  

Kevin joined the WGK team in 2014, where he manages the survey department. 

He enjoys the variety of projects and solving the problems that are inherent to each. Kevin’s communication skills have been instrumental in the successful mediation between landowners and educating the public on how surveying can help with land title security, reducing the premium for flood insurance, and land planning & development. 

Kevin enjoys spending time with his two granddaughters, loves the outdoors, and a good western.
