About Kevin Fuller
Kevin Fuller recognized his call to community service at a young age; being involved in scouting and his parish youth group he was engaged with many community volunteer opportunities. These institutions, along with the values that were instilled in him, provided a solid foundation that lasted throughout his high school years as he emerged as a graduate in 2000 from Central Catholic High School.
His professional career as a union carpenter and contribution to his local union has provided an opportunity to continue his passion for volunteering. Being woven into the fabric of local communities in Northwest Ohio, he recognized his talent for advocacy and in 2017 accepted a role as a business representative for the Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters, speaking on behalf of nearly 3,000 tradespeople in the area. “I’ve recognized that everyone has a voice but are not all inclined to use it, so we rely at times on those willing and courageous enough to speak for us. It takes a listening ear and wide range of communication skills to formulate a consensus and extend that outwardly”, said Mr. Fuller.
Mr. Fuller began his professional career in construction as a carpenter apprentice experiencing in residential, commercial, and industrial carpentry. During his 4 year apprenticeship, he was enrolled in Owens Community College and later in Cuyahoga Community Community College on a path in construction trades management.
He has received extensive training in leadership, communication, collective bargaining, and negotiation procedures. Being involved in numerous civil work and prevailing wage projects, Mr. Fuller has the first-hand experience in dealing with job site engineers, cost efficiency, and estimation of material and associated costs. He currently serves as trustee on Carpenters Local 351 executive board and is tasked with fraud detection/prevention, budget coordination, and management of properties of the local.
He contributes on committees of the Indiana Kentucky Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters regarding productivity, trade specific goals, and industry demand. In his current role as business representative, he is tasked in efforts to develop a trained, productive and drug-free workforce aiding in a long standing partnership with employees and management. These contributions and mutual relationships have allowed for sustainability in a thriving public sector.
Being happily married to his wife Kristina and a devout father he has lived happily and safely in the City of Perrysburg for nearly 7 years. Mr. Fuller – “I value this community and have developed a passion for its sustainability. We moved here because the citizens care and the police and fire are top-notch. When you have some comfort that your children can walk down to the park or ride their bikes around the neighborhood and trust that not only law enforcement is looking out for them and keeping the community safe but your neighbors care equally to that regard it speaks volumes for an ideal place to live. It only makes sense that I’ve fallen in love with the City of Perrysburg.
