OUR COMMUNITY

A Message From the CEO/President

“Located just minutes east of Orlando lays impressive coastlines, great shopping, terrific sporting outlets, and some of the best priced Real Estate on Florida’s East Coast.  With just over 600,000 people located throughout the county, Brevard County has something to offer every age without the headache and stress of traffic and congestion.”

—Susie Glasgow, CEO/President —

Our Booming Economy

Through the creation of Kennedy Space Center in 1969, Brevard County not only underwent a significant economic transformation, but also obtained its nickname, Space Coast Florida. Now over half a century later, the Space Center is still contributing to the county’s economic growth with 15,000 employees and is also joined by agriculture, citrus production, and the manufacturing of scientific and electronic equipment.

Space Coast Amenities

With Orlando only an hour away, you can have the booming experience of a metropolis with major theme parks like Disney, Universal Studios, or Sea World and major sporting events, shows, etc. and then come back to the serenity of the small town feel in Brevard County. Don’t be mistaken though! The Space Coast also has some terrific amenities as well.

Diverse Educational System

We know Education is Important…and Brevard County ranks among the best in the state when it comes to education. Here are just a few reasons why the county is so highly ranked:

  • Within the 10 largest districts, Brevard has ranked first in the number of grade “A” rated schools.
  • According to the Florida Dept. of Education, 5 of the top 10 Elementary Schools are in the District.
  • Brevard high schools lead the state in the number of students dual enrolled in secondary and college courses.

Year-Round Recreation

With its consistent climate, Brevard County has the ability to offer outdoor recreation nearly year-round. With more golf courses than any other place in the world, Florida is a well-known, popular destination for golfers. With 72 miles of beaches, Brevard County, specifically Cocoa Beach, is a well-known Mecca when it comes to surfing. Between Brevard’s major waterways, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and the St. Johns River, this is a fisherman and boaters paradise.

Success Stories

I would recommend SkillBridge through Kegman Inc. to others. I feel it was a great way to transition from active duty to civilian life.

The best part was being exposed to new things in the contractor world and being allowed to acclimate to the changes that come with transitioning from the military at my own pace.

I feel that Kegman was very supportive and gave me everything that I needed to ease my transition to civilian life.

I believe the program made the transition much easier by providing flexibility during out processing and allowed an excellent introduction to life outside the military.

 

MORE OPPORTUNITIES

Kegman offers engineering mentorship to mentor new engineers as they look to grow in their field and advance their career.  Kegman's small size and IPT structure means new engineers spend much of their time working closely with experienced engineers with advanced degrees.  This environment provides for the training and experience engineers who wish to pursue their professional engineering licensure need to succeed.  In certain cases, Kegman may even cover the cost of training and exams for professional engineering licensing.
