Former MLB Player Stands Up Successful Rhino Shield Dealership in New Orleans

Kevin mmahat

New Orleans, LA. (July 19, 2022) Kevin Mmahat retired from the New York Yankees in 1993. His passion for baseball carried him to Tulane and he was quickly recruited to the majors. Mmahat says baseball and sports taught him life lessons he’s used to grow successful businesses for 30 years.

“The lessons I learned from the game, from the coaches and players, are a part of everything I’ve done throughout my career,” said Mmahat. “Things like staying structured and organized, being able to talk with people and develop strong relationships, teamwork, integrity — these are the core tenants of success and I’m so grateful for those who poured into me over my sports career.”

After working corporate jobs and owning his own coating business, 18 months ago, Mmahat became the Rhino Shield® coatings dealer for the greater New Orleans area. Rhino Shield, the 20-plus year division of AmCoat™ Industrial, is Veteran-Owned and made in the U.S.A. Rhino Shield is a coating that goes on much thicker than conventional paint and is warrantied for 25 years.

Mmahat says success in business is built around creating new customers and doing the right thing.

“I moved from pitching for the Yankees to pitching great, proven home products, and standing behind them,” said Mmahat. “So, Rhino Shield was a natural — customers love the hardiness of the coating but they really love the 25-year warranty.”

Since taking over the Rhino Shield dealership, Mmahat has seen much success, earning more than $5 million in sales.

“At 57, having the success this time around is very sweet,” said Mmahat. “I’m at an age where I don’t take anything for granted — I’m grateful and blessed for this opportunity to help homeowners protect their homes with Rhino Shield.”

Rhino Shield experienced record growth in the first quarter of 2022 — 76 percent year over year. AmCoat is expanding its Rhino Shield dealer distribution network to Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, New York City, Omaha, Buffalo, Rochester, Los Angeles, Boise, Baltimore, Richmond and more.
