Kevin Knecht

Kevin Knecht graduated from San Diego State University in 2010 after transferring from Michigan State University. He received a B.S. in Business Marketing with a minor in Chinese Language. Having equally divided his time at both schools, he refers to himself as a “Spaztec.” Some of Kevin’s favorite college moments include studying abroad in China, tailgating for the football games, moving to California, and learning about SEO.

After making the transition into the “real world,” Kevin worked for an insurance agency in San Diego. While there, he made sure that he kept up with his marketing and was fortunate to find out about Thunder through a Craigslist ad. Kevin became a Thunder Cat in May 2011, and is eager to learn and absorb everything SEO like a rogue sponge. Currently, he is focused on supporting the Local Search and SEO campaigns at Thunder.

When Kevin is not in the office he enjoys the finer things that life has to offer. Like taking walks and music. You can hear his attempt at music at Warring States of Mind.

How to Use Social Media to Find & Connect with Cougars


 When I was a young lad growing up in the Great Lake State, I was constantly bombarded by people asking me if I wanted to go hunting. “Hey Kevin, let’s go deer hunting,” or “You feel like shooting at some wild turkey Kevin?” For some reason, that really never appealed to me. In fact, the only time that I would even notice deer back home was if I had been driving on some back road and hit one with my vehicle. It wasn’t until my late teens/early 20’s did I come to appreciate the thrill of a chase.
