Kevin Prior, Chief Executive Officer at 3 Pointe Solar, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the fields of energy and technology.
With an accrued expertise in IT, philanthropy, and solar energy, Mr. Prior has built an accomplished, multi-faceted career as the leader of an organization that strives to educate consumers—homeowners, business administrators, farmers, and ranchers—on solar energy and environmental growth, offset the cost they pay for utility bills, maximize subsidies, and funnel portions of its profits to educational institutions geared toward trade skills in rural areas. Since 2021, he has excelled as the Chief Executive Officer, President, and Managing Partner of 3 Pointe Solar, Inc. as well as an agricultural partner with Locus Agricultural Solutions and a solar consultant for 8760 Solar. He previously served as a sales adviser for Apricot Solar from 2021 to early 2022, a national and international solar sales representative for Power Zone Equipment, Inc. in 2021, co-owner of S&P Properties LLC and Dunes Ranch, Inc. from 2020 to 2021, and a relationship manager at Heartland. In addition, he was active as the general manager of Anytime Fitness; an account manager for Indigo; a sales expert and adviser for Global Technology Resources; a senior account executive for VMANIX; and a field account executive at Insight. Since 2016, he has found success as the president, owner, and IT consultant at Divine IT and Business Solutions, Inc. His other roles have included being a sales specialist at IBM Security, a corporate account executive at SHI International, and an accounts manager at Maxim Healthcare Services.
Outside of his primary responsibilities, Mr. Prior has served as the director of business development for the Warrior Bonfire Program since 2017 and member of the board of directors, and the director of fundraising, for the Colorado Veterans Project and Veterans Passport to Hope since 2016. A lifelong athlete and all-state tournament MVP in high school, he lent his services as an assistant at summer basketball camps at Adams State University, his alma mater, from 2001 to 2005 and boys’ varsity basketball assistant at Sangre de Cristo High School from 2005 to 2007. In fact, he and his future business partners all played point guards in college basketball, leading them to name their company 3 Pointe Solar, Inc. He is also a dedicated volunteer with Compassion International and part of the mentoring program at Big Brothers Big Sisters of America—and, in 2014, wrote an article, “Forward Progress: How the Denver Broncos Really Play Defense,” for SC Magazine.
Growing up, Mr. Prior was greatly shaped by his parents; his mother, Gay, was a special education and physical education teacher who was a pioneer in the family as the only one who graduated from college. Her achievement motivated him to complete his education in the midst of his career—he took 24 hours of coursework on top of two full-time jobs and an internship, and ultimately earned a bachelor’s degree in sport and exercise management and physiology, with a minor in business administration, from Adams State University in 2005. The experience of obtaining his degree, he said, developed a strong work ethic in him that propelled the success he achieved in all his professional undertakings. Additionally, his father, John, a Vietnam War veteran and medic, was a key influence in his life whom he saw as his best friend.
Boasting more than 15 years of experience in information technology consulting and renewable energy services, and the ability to defy the odds through his winning attitude, Mr. Prior aspires to maintain his health and give back to his community in a variety of ways in the future. He plans on utilizing a five-acre stretch of land he owns to educate people on agriculture and bring people together by collaborating with other entities that help families and business owners.
