After 16 years of a successful career in education, most recently as a superintendent, Brandon Kimble decided to tap into his entrepreneurial spirit and start his own company. Brandon is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Kimble Capital LLC. He is also a Licensed Realtor with BeUrban Realty located in Downtown Chicago. Under Kimble Capital LLC, Brandon also operates a 24-hour mobile notary business in the entire Chicagoland area. He received his Loan Signing Agent certification through the National Notary Association. With a background in real estate, he can add a lot of value to loan signing agent assignments and will do so with the utmost professionalism.
A native of Arkansas, Brandon Kimble learned early on how the unjust destiny of demographics impact low-income communities. Brandon always knew he wanted to play a role in closing the achievement gap that exists in our lifetime and give back to his community. Upon graduating from The Ohio State University, Brandon joined Teach for America as a 2005 Greater New Orleans corps member. Brandon landed in New Orleans as a teacher, but Hurricane Katrina drove him to Houston, where he helped create KIPP NOW College Prep for evacuee students and served as the founding 8th grade reading teacher. Since then, Brandon served numerous roles including 7th and 8th grade mathematics teacher, department chair, and instructional coach at Holland Middle School and Pershing Middle School, and academic dean at Rocketship Mateo Sheedy. In 2010, Brandon was named “Secondary Teacher of the Year” for the Houston Independent School District and recognized for excellence in teaching by the Texas Middle School Association. Brandon wanted to broaden his impact and continue to change lives through education, so he became the Middle School Principal of Chicago International Charter School – Avalon and shortly after, the Superintendent of ReGeneration Schools. Under Brandon’s leadership, CICS-Avalon has improved significantly over the past three years and is now one of the top charter schools in Chicago. Change isn't easy, but the changes have made the school better for children. Brandon led CICS-Avalon to achieve the 90th and 87th attainment percentiles on NWEA reading and mathematics respectively. Additionally, his students made an average of 2.58 years of growth in reading, 2.2 years of growth in math, and 3.1 years of growth in science in one school year. The schools he served as the Superintendent of ReGeneration Schools are on track to accomplishing the mission of sending kids to college.
