As President and Managing Partner for KDS, Walt is responsible for product development, business expansion and the overall strategy of fresh ideas in a fast paced industry. Always enthusiastic, Walt’s energetic personality and dedication to his work produces exciting results on his projects, such as our recent touchscreen offering.

Prior to joining the KDS team, Walt was the Publisher at JEZEBEL Magazine. However, with almost 15 years of marketing experience in the multifamily industry, KDS came calling and ultimately gained his talents in 2011. Walt holds a B.A. in International Studies, with a minor in Marketing, from The University of South Carolina, and is actively involved with the Georgia Apartment Association, National Apartment Association and Atlanta Apartment Association, where he serves on two committees, one of which benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

In his free time, Walt gathers his partner, dogs, friends and family, and escapes to the Blue Ridge Mountains, where Uncle Walt Walt (as he is known to his niece and nephews) captains boat rides and hikes the trails while strategically avoiding snakes and heights (as much as you possibly can in heavily wooded, mountainous areas).
