IM Spotlight: Kevin Weslaski

February 26, 2016

Image Management owners Kevin and Claire Weslaski started the company 15 years ago with one goal in mind: to provide the best website design services possible. They did not want to be second best.

Whether they're training for a triathlon or working hard at Image Management, the duo go above and beyond. Let's get to know Kevin a bit better!

P.S. - can you guess which one is him in the picture below? ;)


What is your favorite part about working at Image Management?

I would like to say managing people, but that would be a lie. People can be too unpredictable and do not always think alike. I am a perfectionist and want everything to work out. That is why the best part of my job is managing the finances. I love keeping track of the money. The numbers always come out right which is why I like that part of my job the best.


What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I placed 10th in the World Championships in the Ironman 70.3 Competition held in Las Vegas in 2014. So as far as hobbies go: swimming, biking, and running.


What has been your favorite project so far at Image Management?

Creating an online photography system for Case New Holland (CNH) in which over 30 agencies and 500 dealerships as well as hundreds of CNH personnel could access and utilize this imagery. This project came at the time when our online photo library was one of the most cutting-edge systems in the world.


Favorites:

  • Food – salad, pizza, chicken, red meat
  • Book – The Covenant by James A. Michener
  • Store – The Nike Store on the Magnificent Mile, Chicago
  • Restaurant – Festival Foods salad bar :)
  • Hotels – The Peninsula in Chicago, The Four Seasons on the Big Island of Hawaii, and Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica


What's your favorite inspirational quote?

“Live each day as if it were your last because someday you're going to be right.”


Who is your role model?

I am 52 years old. I have had many role models throughout my life. At this stage, I would like to think of myself as a role model to others. I am proud of the fact that our business has flourished. I am also proud of how I take care of my body. I am in the best shape I have ever been. How many 52 year olds can say that?

Back to the question, I surround myself with successful people. Whether that be business entrepreneurs or great sports figures. I become their friends and mimic their actions.
