KCN Team

Kevin Thueson - Partner

Kevin began his career as a CPA with global accounting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers, working with private companies to analyze their financial statements, business processes, and internal controls. After 10 years he decided it was time to put that skillset to work for himself and found the RV and mobile home parks niche in the real estate market – this provided the opportunity to leave his job and jump into full-time real estate investing. He bought his first RV Park, the Green River KOA franchise, in 2018 and within 4 seasons grew that business to nearly double the revenue and in turn leveraged that equity to acquire 2 more KOA franchises in 2020 with Cam Bowen. In his free time Kevin likes to hike, mountain bike and fish with his family.

Cam Bowen - Partner

Cam has been an active real estate investor since 2008. During his tenure at a wealth management firm in Texas he built a personal portfolio of single-family rental homes. Over the course of eight years he grew the portfolio to over 130 single-family and multifamily rentals, generating consistent returns for his investor group. In 2020 he purchased 2 RV campgrounds with Kevin, and moved back to Utah. Cam loves the outdoors and taking his family skiing, camping and hiking.

Nate Thompson - Partner

Nate is an entrepreneur at heart having started, scaled and sold several high tech companies in the Seattle region since starting his first software business in 1995. He is also a passionate real estate investor, having successfully led investments in multiple value-add multi-family and commercial properties over the last 25 years. At the same time he has led successful real estate development projects in the Park City, UT area. These projects have consistently delivered excellent returns to the investor group Nate works with. In his free time Nate loves to ski, hike, camp and mountain bike with his two teenage daughters.
