ALS Association Position: Chair of the Board of Representatives
Kevin Hemenway

Kevin Hemenway and his family have been involved with the St. Louis Chapter of the ALS Association since its inception in 1984.  The previous year, Kevin’s grandmother died after a four-year battle against the disease.  After her death, Kevin’s mother and her siblings assisted with fundraising during the infancy of the local chapter.  They continue to volunteer and offer fundraising items.  In 2007, Kevin was elected to the board of directors and served as vice-president of care services for five years.  Kevin is the original representative of the St. Louis chapter to serve as voting member of the BOR. Kevin has participated on the Strategic Planning Committee of the chapter and was a part of the team that hired a new President in 2010.

“In the past year, I’ve lost two very special people to this disease.  I also have a friend who continues to battle ALS with courage and grace,” said Hemenway.  “Their courage fighting this disease matches the people with ALS we on the board are privileged to meet on a regular basis.  They inspire me to do all that I can to combat this disease, and in that manner, I commit to serving as Secretary to the BOR.  I will put forth every effort to move the BOR forward in its mission to serve these people and their families.”

Hemenway started in the insurance industry in 1991 as a claims adjuster and worked in several different capacities for Fireman’s Fund and AIG.  He became a broker in 2007 to partner directly with business owners to assist them in reaching their goals while protecting their employees and assets.  He focuses in the social service industry.  He received an Executive MBA degree from Washington University in 2002 and a B.A. in Communications from Missouri State University.

Kevin and his wife, Ann, have two sons and one granddaughter, and they are very involved with Crosspoint Church.  They also open their home to support families with developmentally or behaviorally challenged children.  Along with The ALS Association, Kevin serves on the board of directors for Nonprofit Services Center and the Executive MBA Alumni Board at Washington University.
