About Us

Shades Beach and Pool Services owner, Kevin Collier, was formally associated with the Hilton Sandestin, a world class resort, and has over 25 years of experience in the local hospitality industry. He was in charge of all operations within the Recreation Department which included  Beach Service, Pool Retail, Pool Maintenance, and Children’s Programs.  Kevin figured out along the way that you are only as strong as your weakest link.  He believes that in order to have a successful operation you have to surround yourself with good people, trust in them, and treat them the way you would want to be treated.  Kevin and his wife Lisa are true “locals” and were lucky enough to grow up on the sandy white beaches of the Emerald Coast.  Having watched it change from a quiet little fishing village to the vacation destination it has become today, he understands the area well.  Kevin and his wife are proud parents to son Taylor, and reside in Santa Rosa Beach.  In his spare time, Kevin enjoys coaching and attending Taylor’s sporting events, spending time with family and friends, boating, golfing, and believe it or not….. going to the beach!

Kevin believes he lives in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and takes pride in showcasing our beaches very seriously.  Over the years he has proven to take ownership in the safety and comfort of all Owners and Guests.  It is his goal to be the most trusted and reliable company in this business, while continuing to provide exceptional service.
