Across the globe, our clients work to feed the world and keep it healthy. Likewise, Kincannon & Reed searches the world over to deliver the leaders needed to succeed in this noble mission.
Unlike many “international” search firms, we operate as a single office with multiple locations; no silos separate our staff. Ideas, contacts, and insights are freely exchanged among our principals and researchers around the world. This enterprise-wide collaboration translates into a competitive edge−helping to find clients the best possible candidates no matter where in the world they are located.
Kincannon & Reed was founded by Kelly Kincannon in 1981. Over the ensuing years, the firm developed a path unique in the world of retained search: an exclusive focus on the interrelated realms of food, agribusiness, and life sciences; and principals drawn from the ranks of senior executives in the sectors we serve. In 2007, Mr. Kincannon sold the firm to an internal group of senior principals. Today the global footprint of Kincannon & Reed has expanded to every continent and its growth continues unabated.
