Drive Capital CEO gives Ashland commencement address


In a recent commencement address at Ashland University, Mark Kyamme, co-founder, principal and founding partner at Drive Capital LLC, gave the graduates a concise goal – strive to change the world.

Kyamme began by showing video clips from Ohio Gov. John Kasich, national committeewoman for the Republican Party for Ohio Jo Ann Davidson, and professional golfer Jason Day.

“What is interesting about these three individuals, they are reaching the top – John Kasich is running for president; Jo Anne Davidson is one of the most amazing political women in the country and the first woman speaker of the Ohio house; and, of course, Jason Day, who this year became the No. 1 golfer in the world,” Kyamme said. “What is amazing about all of these people, they all pretty much started with nothing.”

Following the commencement address, Ashland President Carlos Camp and interim Provost Doug Fiore conferred 274 degrees.
