About Kevin Liska

Kevin Liska, a 30-year marketing veteran, is executive director of Tennessee Tech University’s iCube. While attending Northland College and Tennessee Tech, he was strongly influenced by mentors who challenged and encouraged his enthusiasm and creativity.  On a daily basis, he carries forward that spirit by seeking to mentor and inspire leaders to apply business best practices and innovative technology.  He has developed the center’s niche toward critical public policy challenges, environmental stewardship, entrepreneurship and safety.  For more than two decades, he has led the iCube (formerly Business Media Center) in implementing emerging business technologies to assist various businesses, organization, institutions, governmental agencies and universities.  He has helped hundreds of high-growth entrepreneurs and implemented several unique statewide public campaigns.  Liska is consistently ranked among Tennessee Tech’s top funded researchers.

Liska’s enthusiasm in the classroom earned him the university’s Pan-Hellenic Faculty Member of the Year Award, the Curtis Kinslow Award for Excellence in Overall Performance. He has also received TTU’s Outstanding Professional Award and the College of Business Award for Outstanding Service.  The Center he founded and directs received the prestigious Academic Excellence and Quality Award from the Tennessee Board of Regents. Liska has served on several boards of directors including the Bryan Symphony Orchestra, Upper Cumberland Soccer and the Boys & Girls Club.
