He oversees all network distribution and affiliate marketing aspects of INSP, and he’s not afraid to surround himself with go-getters when making new hires. Kang looks for individuals who have “evidence of grit, unique backgrounds, humility, confidence, and candidates who are smarter than me.” Believing that diverse employees can make a whole organization greater than the sum of its parts, Kang encourages his fellow industry leaders to support such organizations as the Walter Kaitz Foundation, NAMIC and WICT.
