Kyle Mayes

Strategic Advisor

Even though Kyle wasn’t born yet when ZZ Top first sang a song about a sharp-dressed man, we’re pretty sure it’s about him. From his Warby Parker spectacles to his leather shoes (he owns more pairs than his wife does), Kyle could conceivably model for a Billy Reid ad any day of the week. Which is to say, he knows a thing or two about presentation. As a strategic advisor, he’s responsible for making Advent look good too, from scouting out potential clients to getting direct mail campaigns together. He plays a big role in business development research, maintaining client databases and coordinating conferences. And as a true Southern gentleman, he can often be found unloading the dishwasher or finding the perfect barbecue caterer for Advent company lunches.

Originally hailing from Huntsville, Alabama, Kyle attended Birmingham Southern and Lipscomb University and played collegiate baseball and football. He has completed two adventure races and fills his free time with Alabama football, Mexican food, movies and TV shows, as well as spending time with family and friends. Notable milestones include proposing to the love of his life in Central Park and becoming best friends with rapper Drake in the time it took to snap a picture.
