Ways and Means

As the son of a 22-year Air Force veteran, Kevin Hern gained an early appreciation for the sacrifices that military families make. In high school, Kevin earned an Architectural Drafting Certificate in a concurrent Vocational-Technical school, which he used to work and pay for his Mechanical Engineering degree. Later in life, he earned his MBA.

He went on to work as an Aerospace Engineer for Rockwell. Kevin started his first small business in 1985 specializing in computer and software applications. Then he started saving to purchase his first McDonald’s Restaurant, starting several small business ventures: writing computer programs to automate tasks for businesses, real estate, and even hog farming.

In 1997, Kevin sold the hog farm to buy his first McDonald’s restaurants in North Little Rock. He went on to build an organization that owned 18 McDonald’s restaurants and employs over 1,000 people in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.

Kevin has worked across every aisle by serving in various leadership positions within the McDonald’s system – what is dubbed as the most grassroots business in the world. He served 13 years on the National Leadership Team that represented all of the 3,500+ U.S. Franchisees, serving for 8 years as the Ombudsman and 5 years as the chairman of the Systems Economic Team.  As the Chairman of the Economics Team, he was responsible for the multi-billion dollar relationship between the franchisees and McDonald’s Corporation for the over 14,000 franchisee owned restaurants across the United States.  He served on McDonald’s Tax Policy Team for 5 years and on the McDonald’s Insurance Corporation board for 8 years.

In addition, Kevin has part ownership in a manufacturing facility in Muskogee, real estate ventures, and three technology companies. He is co-founder of a community bank where he served for 17 years on the executive board. He uses his business acumen to help aspiring entrepreneurs create new businesses, so they can pursue their American Dream. He has been a small businessman and job creator for over 33 years.

Kevin Hern was sworn into Congress on November 13th, 2018 serving the remainder of NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine’s term. Kevin and his wife Tammy live in Tulsa and have three children. They are members of the Church at Battle Creek.
