Kirk Dennis
Vice President, Publications and Sponsorship Program

Kirk is a voluntaryist and seasoned business executive that leads our development efforts and is expanding our publications business. He was formerly the principal of Kirk Dennis Inc (KDI) – a management consulting firm that specialized in developing marketing plans and sales strategies for companies in the high-tech industry. Besides KDI, he has founded and built three other diverse companies, including a wholesale computer distributor, Boulder Computer Systems; a nationwide LAN/WAN systems integrator – SigmaCom, Inc; and a videoconferencing company, VideoCom, Inc.

Business highlights include:

  • $250M plus in personal sales over entire career
  • $110M sale to Lockheed Martin in 1986 (global conversion from IBM to Compaq computers)
  • Starting SigmaCom with one other person and a credit card and taking it public as Cavion, Inc. on the NASDAQ Exchange in 1999.

Kirk graduated from Wittenberg University (Springfield, Ohio) with a B.A. in philosophy. As a student, Kirk traveled to Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India for a one-year independent study consummated in a book-length manuscript entitled: “Bodh Gaya – The Holiest Buddhist Shrine.” Bodh Gaya is where the Buddha sat under the Bodhi Tree and received enlightenment. Just like Jerusalem for the Judeo/ Christian religion and Mecca for Islam, Bodh Gaya is considered the holiest place in the Buddhist world.

While living in India, Kirk stayed at the Bodh Gaya Ashram – the international headquarters for disciples of Mahatma Gandhi and the birthplace of the Indian independence movement that drove the British from India. After Gandhi was assassinated in 1949, Vinoba Bhave (1895 – 1982) became the new leader of the Gandhi organization. Bhave was an Indian advocate for nonviolence and human rights. Often called Archaya (teacher in Sanskrit), he is best known for establishing the Bhoodan Movement to provide donated land to the poor (over 1,000 villages) for cultivation.
