Getting to Know LSWG – Kevin Hessler

Next in our series to better acquaint you with our fellow LSWG co-workers and friends…

Meet Kevin Hessler, CPA

LSWG’s co-managing principal, Kevin, has been a member of the firm since 1982.  He specializes in tax planning for professionals and owner-managed businesses, with a particular emphasis in the real estate industry—serving as both an advisor and an investor.

Kevin describes himself as a traveler, wine lover, craps player, and “Pap.”

  • Travel has become Kevin’s passion. In the past couple of years, he has been to Norway, Iceland, London, Paris, and most recently, Santorini, Greece.
  • Santorini – Described by Kevin, as “the most beautiful spot in the world—everywhere you turned there was another breath-taking view.”
  • Travel & Wine – Kevin enjoys a good wine. Next on his bucket list of places to visit is the wine country of Italy.
  • Craps player – Kevin enjoys the comradery of a good craps game and has been to Las Vegas more times than he can count (…and he’s an accountant…)
  • “Pap” – The proud father of two (Greg, a financial analyst who lives in North Carolina, and Meghan, a marketing manager in Frederick), Kevin is especially proud of his role as “Pap” to Greg and Beth’s, 4-year-old daughter, Evie.
  • Favorite Quote – “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” ~ Vince Lombardi

Kevin and his wife, Jeannie, loved Santorini and relaxing on the Aaegean Sea.

Kevin said of Santorini, Greece, “…everywhere you turned there was another breath-taking view.”

Kevin is the proud dad of Meghan and Greg.

Growing up, Kevin said the family went to Ocean City every summer–a favorite memory captured in this photo of him and his dad, Junior (“JR”) Hessler, who passed away last year.

“Pap” gave granddaughter, Evie, a better view of downtown Frederick’s Christmas lights.
