Kennon and Scott Burns founded AssetBuilder in August of 2006.
Kennon is a highly qualified executive manager with over 20 years of experience, working for several start-up companies and other notable industry leaders like Microsoft, American Airlines, Sybase and EDS.
As an entrepreneur, Kennon has worn many functional hats in the enterprise software and services business: Kennon started his career in 1985 with EDS then worked with companies such and American Airlines and Microsoft before becoming an entrepreneur. He has also served as General Partner for Gold Creek Capital, President & COO of GolfPort, Inc., President & CEO of VertaPort, Inc., and President of Optima Asset Management.
In August of 2006, Kennon joined forces with Scott to develop a registered investment advisory business deploying a website with trusted content, rich educational media, constructed portfolios and social computing functionality. They would use Scott’s ability to communicate with a broad audience, low-cost index funds, and create an efficient delivery system for the smaller investor who is usually beset by high expense vendors of dubious financial products.
