That’s how we’ve built a track record of success which is the envy of the industry.
But at its heart, a Kincannon & Reed search is not about process; it is about building valuable long-term relationships. Success springs from the ability to engage in quality conversations; to substantively understand your goals and your environment so we can accurately assess each candidate’s fit against your requirements.

"When this search started you indicated one of your goals was to provide a slate that would be so good that we would have difficulty choosing just one candidate. You far exceeded that goal."
