Happy Leap Day!
February 29 is a date that occurs only every four years. It is called Leap Day. It’s a rarity – it doesn’t come around very often.
We’d like to think that our own Leeper – Don Leeper, that is – is a rarity, too. Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration, Don Leeper has grown into a great leadership position during his twenty years with KEP.
Don makes sure we are responsible stewards of our customers’ time and budget, while maintaining high quality standards in everything we produce. He encourages us to dream big, but keeps us grounded, solvent and successful.
So 2020 is a Leap Year, and today is Leap Day – but at KEP – every day at KEP is Leeper Day. His talent, insight and ability makes us a smarter, better company.
Be on the lookout for Don’s White Paper – coming in March!

American manufacturers rethinking the cost of cheap (outsourcing) need the insights of CFOs to redefine the new bottom line. Price never tells the complete story. The CFO who recognizes and calculates hidden costs up front provides the company a stewardship that goes beyond financial. The CFO can forge and strengthen partnerships and contribute to the company success like never before.
