Kevin Wohlever – Director of OSC Springfield Operations

Kevin has been involved in High Performance Computing or Supercomputing for over 20 years. He was around at founding of the Ohio Supercomputer Center in 1987 and except for a few years when he left to help support supercomputer centers for the EPA and Dow chemical as the technical lead, has been involved in OSC ever since.

Kevin’s career has overlapped a large part of the supercomputing move from expensive, proprietary systems only available to government agencies, to relatively inexpensive, with open operating system environments that are available to a wide range of users. Along the way, Kevin has worked for: The National Security Agency, NASA, the US EPA, Dow Chemical, Nationwide Insurance, Cray Research and of course OSC. During that time he has moved from a system administrator up through the ranks as a project leader to his current position as the director of the OSC operations in Springfield.

Active in CUG since 1989, Kevin has served as SIG chair for Operating Systems and Mass Storage. He is currently serving on the CUG Board of Directors as Treasurer, a position he has held since 2001.

In his spare time, Kevin has run a soccer league in the Columbus area, is an Assistant Scout Master for the Boy Scouts, is a FIFA certified soccer referee and is active in youth sports in Worthington, Ohio, his current home. Kevin is married to Barbara, and they have two children, the oldest is beginning his second year at The Ohio State University and the youngest is a Junior at Worthington Kilbourne High School.

A native of Lorain, Ohio, Kevin is a graduate of Bowling Green State Universit
