KEVIN MUNDY for City Council

About Me

But it’s not really about me — it’s about you! It’s about you getting the best representation possible on the City Council. It’s about you and everyone else having a voice in city government. And it’s about you being welcomed to the community table. Because I firmly believe I’m the right person to represent you, please let me to tell you more about myself and my background.

I moved to Winston-Salem in 1987 to start my career with Sara Lee Branded Apparel, now Hanesbrands. Having grown up in the small town of Aiken, SC, I was thrilled to be living in the “big city” of Winston-Salem! It didn’t take me long to become actively engaged in the community, and over the years I have served in various leadership roles.

I currently work with Leadership Winston-Salem, a cornerstone in the local non-profit world that teaches emerging leaders about our community and connects them with opportunities to serve. I am on the City of Winston-Salem’s Senior Games and Silver Arts planning committee. I am president of the Seasons Chase Homeowners Association, part-time choir director at Green Street United Methodist Church, and I am also the volunteer director of the Winston-Salem Pops Chorus.

MY HISTORY OF COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP

  • Eighteen years with Hanesbrands (formerly Sara Lee Branded Apparel) including seven years as community relations manager, working with local and state leaders across public and private sectors;
  • Tournament director of The Crosby National Celebrity Golf Tournament while at Sara Lee/Hanes;
  • Member of the Winston-Salem Donors’ Forum, a group comprised of representatives from the Winston-Salem Foundation, Kate B. Reynolds and Z. Smith Reynolds Foundations and other locale philanthropic organizations;
  • Loaned Executive/Campaign Officer for the United Way;
  • Vice president of marketing and communications, AIDS Care Service;
  • Executive director, Sawtooth School for Visual Art;

  • Served on various local boards and committees including March of Dimes, National Black Theatre Festival, The Arts Council, Crosby Scholars Community Partnership, Winston-Salem Symphony Chorale, Triad Pride Men’s Chorus, AIDS Care Service, Little Theatre, and 40+ Stage Company.

EDUCATION

I am a summa cum laude graduate of Wofford College (Spartanburg, SC) with a BA in Government and Spanish. I’m proud to say I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society my senior year. I earned an International MBA from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. The “other” Carolina.

HOMELIFE

My husband Michael and I have been together for 21 years. We are the proud parents of Kensi, Chase and Spence, three beautiful Maltese pups, each one a rescue. We joke that we have a “mixed” marriage because I’m a Methodist and he’s a Moravian, so we sometimes have to flip a coin on Sunday morning. We live in Seasons Chase, a small development nestled between Jonestown and Stratford Roads, next to Salem Woods, and we are blessed with some of the best neighbors in the world. We are both musicians. I’m a vocalist, choral director and mediocre pianist, and Michael, who is recently retired, is a former organist with the Moravian church. Between the two of us we have five keyboards in the house, including a baby grand piano and full-sized 2-manual church organ.
