President, Chief Strategist, Wardroom Success Strategies

Kevin Meenaghan facilitates NWCPHP project management development as a facilitator in the Public Health Management Certificate Program.

Kevin invested 26 years as a Navy pilot and officer. His own personal leadership journey began in the Wardrooms and flight decks onboard aircraft carriers, where his leadership abilities orchestrated the movements of hundreds of crew members as they assisted in the takeoff and landing of aircraft, and the employment of carrier strike group ships. His military leadership reached the highest levels, culminating in the facilitation of meetings with the President’s National Security Advisor, Secretary of Defense and Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Kevin’s business, Wardroom Success Strategies, stems from his time as a Naval Officer. The Wardroom onboard a Navy vessel is the private room for higher-ranking officers, a place where those in management positions gather to rest, take meals, and discuss matters. In the Wardroom, leadership is nurtured and camaraderie grows. Founded by Kevin, Wardroom Success Strategies offers professional organizations The Wardroom Experience through methodologies that foster leadership, build teams, and deliver stronger professional cultures.

Upon his transition from the military 10 years ago, Kevin shared his leadership knowledge as an executive coach and college associate professor of business management and leadership. Kevin has facilitated the training of hundreds of leaders in business, nonprofit and government organizations. Kevin was also the director of the Cascades Job Corps in Sedro Woolley for two years. He served as a facilitator for Leadership Skagit for 5 years and is the past President of the Anacortes Rotary Club. He and his wife own a small farm in Mount Vernon, WA, an hour north of Seattle.
