Kevin started out as an IT professional and, like so many others, "stumbled" into the search industry in 1985. It was meant to be a temporary measure while he figured out what he wanted to do next but after about 8 months, he realized that “this was it”.
Within the talent acquisition space, Kevin has worked on retained, contingency, executive and interim mandates across almost every industry and function (IT, Finance/Accounting, Risk, Operations and Human Resources). During the 2001-2005 timeframe, he took a break from search to sell software for Taleo, HireDesk and Workopolis. Most recently, Kevin was an early member of Farber Group’s Interim Management and Executive Search practice where he originated and executed on executive and interim search mandates in the mid-market. Prior to that he focused on the Financial Services sector at Collins Recruitment Group.
Kevin is married to Sunny and has 2 adult boys and a stepdaughter. Outside of work he tries to keep up with Sunny and volunteers at church and in the community.
