R3’s Kyle Kirk honored at awards ceremony

R3’s Kyle Kirk was honored at the San Diego Business Journal’s 2023 Top 50 Black Leaders of Influence awards ceremony, in association with the Central San Diego Black Chamber of Commerce, on February 28, 2023. Kyle joined R3 in 2018, rising from Instructor to Project and now Program Manager overseeing high-risk training for Special Operations military units. He retired from the Navy after 26 years as a Master Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician, serving in the Global War on Terrorism, and making multiple combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.


Now a Project Management Professional, he mentors transitioning military service members and leads complex Department of Defense contract support programs.

Also in attendance to help celebrate Kyle’s achievement were R3’s Director of Operations and Security, Chris Merwin, and R3’s Human Resources Coordinator, Keanna Spencer. We are thrilled to see Kyle’s commitment and dedication recognized in this public forum across all business sectors in San Diego.
