Staff Spotlight: Brenden, Intern
“What was your path to KCG?”
Brenden Dial: My path to KCG started when I was in Kempsville High School’s Entrepreneurship & Business Academy at the Advanced Technology Center. I met KCG’s CEO, Mark Klett, as a freshman in high school during a cyber hygiene seminar he spoke at. At the time, I was looking for a way into the networking and cybersecurity field. I had the opportunity to job shadow at KCG my sophomore year and immediately knew that it was where I wanted to be. This summer I landed the opportunity of interning with KCG.
