Mr. Osterberger received his B.A. in Marketing from Southeastern in 1982. Upon graduation,
he spent several years in Baton Rouge gaining experience as the construction manager
for Circle K Food Stores in Phoenix, Arizona managing a seven state region. Experience
gained in that position led him to a construction management position with Conoco,
Inc. in Denver, Colorado where he managed a 40 million dollar budget and later joined
their marketing department as an account manager and moved to Spokane Washington where
he now resides.
He recognized that exceeding Conoco company goals would inevitably mean a move to
corporate headquarters and away from Spokane so Kevin began to diversify his business
endeavors. Relying on his experience and business acumen, Kevin created West Plains
Conoco, a highway travel plaza consisting of a gas station, car wash, laundry mat
and Burger King restaurant which he owns and operates today. A few years later he
started West Plains Auto, an importer of motor vehicles from Canada into the U.S.
for the purpose of selling the vehicles at wholesale auctions. At the time the U.S.
currency exchange was very favorable for this kind of business. Then in 2000, Kevin
became the CEO of U.S. CASHexpress, Inc., a business that, in his own words, "Banks
the un-bankable" by providing check cashing wire service, money orders, and Pay Day
His endeavors since leaving Southeastern have taken him to seven different cities,
but he now calls Spokane, Washington home.
