Business Management, '93

Kevin Tucker started SOLitude Lake Management in 1998 to focus on the growing need for adequate management of lakes and storm water retention ponds and the preservation of our natural resources. SOLitude provides water quality monitoring and restoration, fisheries management, invasive plant and algae species management, nutrient remediation, and many other fresh water management services.  He is an active member of many leading trade and professional organizations and remains on the cutting edge of product, service, and technology improvements in the aquatics industry. He is a regularly published author for many industry-related publications, and is one of the founding members of the Society of Lake Management Professionals, an organization tasked with setting the accreditation standards for the industry.  Mr. Tucker holds a Degree in Business Management from James Madison University. 

Since its inception, SOLitude Lake Management has grown into one of the preeminent water resource management companies in the country.  The company currently operates in 38 states, and is experiencing rapid organic growth, while also pursuing many new strategic acquisition opportunities.  In late 2017, SOLitude was acquired by a publically traded company from the UK, and Kevin has remained with the company as CEO.

Kevin is President of Tucker Development Corporation, which serves as the management arm of his real estate investment and management activities, which are primarily focused on commercial and recreational investment properties.

Kevin is also President of London Street Development Corp., a company founded by him and a fellow JMU graduate, which focused on the acquisition and renovation of distressed properties in residential and commercial historical districts. Utilizing state and federal tax credits generated through these historical rehabilitations, London Street Development is able to create attractive economics for investors to renovate properties that have significant historical or potential commercial value, while helping to revitalize the surrounding community.

Kevin is a regular investor in small to midsize privately held ventures, and serves on the board and executive committee for several of these ventures.  Some of Kevin’s most recent ventures as an investor include telecom and managed solutions, residential real estate rehabilitation, environmental innovation, and agro tourism projects.

Kevin is also a partner in Blue Toad Hard Cider, a company originally founded in Western NY, which he helped expand to Nellysford, VA near the Wintergreen Mountain resort.  Kevin and his partners acquired the former Wintergreen Winery, and have converted it to a cider operation capable of greatly expanding the current manufacturing capacity, while also providing a tasting room and pub for locals and tourists alike.  The property also features an events venue which can accommodate weddings and corporate events in a truly unique environment with unmatched views and character.
