    Kevin Baird is the General Manager at Modern Nissan of Concord.  For over a decade he has been with Modern and couldn't imagine working in a better atmosphere.  Between helping to run the sales floor and spending time at home with wife, Erica, and their 3 children, he's a busy guy.  His boys play travel baseball and the family really enjoys the outdoors and getting out on their boat. The most memorable trip was when they traveled to Disney.
