Kevin Esau – President

Kevin has been developing and supporting accounting solutions since 1990, a perfect fit that brought together his accounting and IT training in accounting. From business process documentation to custom application design, he brings Chief Information Officer expertise to our clients. Since then he supported clients to make their businesses run better using better business processes and better use of technology.

Kevin has been involved with the computer industry all of his life. His first development project was a music application that was sold to the school board where he attended. Kevin has combined his love of computers with a business/accounting education. This allows him to understand the business needs and how the information needs to integrate into Enterprise Resource Management systems. Kevin has worked for many large organizations and the projects have taken him to numerous countries on this side of the globe. Kevin has enjoyed building the Contego team from the ground up.
