Kevin Tennant is a Partner in the Executive Interim Management practice with LHH Knightsbridge in Toronto. He serves LHH Knightsbridge’s Financial Services clients.
Kevin has a wealth of experience spanning a 30-year career in recruitment in the Canadian Marketplace. He transitioned to a career in recruiting after cutting his teeth as an IT technology professional. He was groomed by a pair of agency owners who were intent on professionalizing the nascent recruiting business into a professional services firm. Kevin quickly established himself as a top Account Manager and built an impressive client base which included MicroSoft, IBM and CIBC.
Having accomplished a lot in IT staffing, Kevin was attracted to the cloud software field (before it was known as cloud) and worked with Taleo, Workopolis and HireDesk (now Talemetry) to help organizations make use of the Internet to extend their reach into the talent marketplace and streamline their processes.
Upon joining Hays in 2005, Kevin transitioned to working as a Senior Accounting and Finance Recruiter and helped grow the Hays brand in the GTA marketplace. Having demonstrated an interest in working on senior retained searches, Kevin narrowed his focus to the Financial Services sector and extended his working to Technology, Risk, Compliance and Investment Banking functions. This has led to his current role serving the Financial Services sector at LHH Knightsbridge.
Being a big believer in continuous learning, Kevin completed his MBA in 2018. His dissertation delved into how organizations can make their voluntary turnover reduction and employee retention efforts more “generation friendly”, accounting for some of the differences in expectations and motivations displayed by people who identify with Boomer, Gen-X and Millennial cohorts. This research has created a platform where Kevin is able to help Executives understand the role of trust in voluntary turnover and retention and how they can build and maintain trust.
