Our principals are personally involved in each engagement from start to finish. Their active leadership results in better targeting potential candidates and more effective outreach, ensuring that prospects are professionally and persuasively presented with your opportunity. After all, your success – and ours – in filling your top talent needs is too important to be handed off to junior associates.
True global collaboration. Unlike many firms, Kincannon & Reed is not siloed geographically. We function as a single office in multiple geographic locations. Ideas, contacts, and insights are freely exchanged among our principals around the world, working together as a team to best serve our clients. This enterprise-wide culture of collaboration translates into a competitive edge for you: you get access to Kincannon & Reed’s best minds regardless of where they are located.
Another benefit of Kincannon & Reed’s unique global virtual office structure is that your engagement can literally span the globe and progress around the clock. We structure global search teams that can leverage time zone differences, and facilitate communication between client headquarters and their international operating divisions.
Your behind-the-scenes advantage. Like you, we know the value of a first-rate support team. At Kincannon & Reed, we believe we have the most talented researchers in the business. With an average experience of 16 years in executive search, our researchers support principals with invaluable assistance in identifying contacts, examining backgrounds, and qualifying candidate achievements to ensure that our searches are the most comprehensive and efficient in the business. Located around the world, they’re better able to grasp the nuances of a position, and access the nooks and crannies typically missed by those with less experience and insight.
