Dr. Kevin Frey
CEO, Generation Unlimited
As both an entrepreneur and an executive, Kevin has operated at the nexus of the private and public sectors throughout his career, spanning the education, technology, human capital and international development spheres.
Prior to joining Generation Unlimited as CEO in 2021, Kevin served as the CEO of Right To Play — an international development organization that works across Africa, the Middle East, and Asia to protect, educate, and empower children and youth.
At the age of 27, Kevin founded his first company, TeachAway, a job-matching and professional development platform for teachers, with a mission to ensure that every child experiences the power of a great teacher. TeachAway grew to become the Kesson Group which created and operates Skooli, an online tutoring platform, and Klassroom, a US-accredited e-learning provider of K-12 teacher licensure. The Kesson Group was acquired by Pluribus Technologies.
Before Right To Play, Kevin spent 15 years in the international and higher education sectors, most recently leading Canada’s top-ranked MBA program at the University of Toronto as the Managing Director.
Kevin’s academic background includes an Honours Bachelor of Arts with High Distinction from the University of Toronto, where he majored in Philosophy and History; an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University; and a Doctorate in Business Administration from IE Business School, where his research focused on entrepreneurship.
