About Kevin Lacilla

I live in Litchfield County CT with my wife and three children. Received my bachelors degree in Finance from Bentley College, now Bentley University. I am self employed operating between three different businesses: Bearicuda, Red Door Software and Lacilla Consulting Services.

Kevin Lacilla - Red Door Software, helping companies sell complex products on the internet. We allow distributors to simply the selection process of products with complex and confusing variations.

Kevin Lacilla - RedxChange Product Syndication is the industry’s first Platform as a Service (PaaS), centralizing all manufacturer product data (including built-in support for complex products) for seamless connectivity into distributors web content and ERP systems entirely on-demand and without software.

Bearicuda, Inc was founded by Kevin Lacilla as part of a 20 plus year old company, Dawg Inc,"Doing Away With Grime" helped companies solve spill control challenges within the industrial workplace and outdoor environment. The first Bearicuda Product was inspired by a Dawg customer request, asking if he could use one of our spill containment drums as a trash receptacle to keep bears and other animals out of his trash, states Kevin Lacilla. I thought, “why not” and after a considerable amount of engineering our first Bear Resistant Trash Receptacles and Enclosures were tested and certified at the LWWF, Living with Wildlife Foundation and the IGBC, Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee, the only two independent agencies of their kind to independently test and certify cans and enclosures for this purpose.

Lacilla Consulting Services ("LCS") is a management consulting firm dedicated to providing high quality, professional services to small and large businesses. LCS was founded by Kevin Lacilla. Mr. Lacilla has over twenty years experience in the business arena, focusing on practical solutions and independent perspective to the business and organizational.

Kevin Lacilla purchased this cottage in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to extend a sincere thank you for a wonderful week at your beautiful sea side home in Rhode Island. From the whiff of the sea air as soon as we emerged from our car to the fantastic views from one of your many porches, it was an unforgettable experience.

The home is a work of art. Kitchen counter tops are stunning, a piece of art in themselves.Rooms were well appointed, clean, spacious and inviting.

Landscaping was beautiful and you were able to bring the outdoors in. Many peaceful hours were spent relaxing on the large front porch, with privacy drapes flowing and the wind blowing, it was just perfect. Kayaking to your shared private island was a unique and satisfying experience.

We felt very welcome and well taken care of with your personalized list of places to go and things to see. We would not have found many of these gems if it were not for your list of valuable hints.

Thank you for a memorable summer with my family in your sanctuary.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house! The house itself was amazing! Truly a gem!! The water views you get from the master bedroom and living area were amazing.

Every detail from the kitchen to the bedrooms to the entertainment area were impeccable. The decor is comfortable and homey but still elegant and sophisticated. Bottom line the house is immaculate and beautiful all around.

Remembering our Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

REMEMBERING OUR BEST VACATION

Dear Kevin,

It's a pleasure for my wife & I to tell you how much we enjoyed our week at your beautiful RI ocean. I normally don't take time to do this, but I just have to tell you that your home is extraordinary, which means I would rate it 5 star & highly recommend it to any of my friends. By the way, all of whom are very fussy with high standards.

Most noteworthy, your home is modern, tastefully furnished/decorated & immaculate.

Because we love to cook we fell in love with your kitchen & the wrap around counter.

How nice it was to be cooking in the kitchen and able to communicate with our friends in the living & dining area.

What I liked best were the 4 bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. I've rented lots of nice vacation homes but none had this feature.Our friends really appreciated the privacy.

It was more money that I wanted to spend, but we decided that your home had the value and appeal.

We will definitely come back.

Have a great 2016

Dennis
