Relationship Builders

Our business is building relationships, identifying talent, and introducing you to the right leader. In-depth discussions combined with our industry experience enable us to quickly understand the caliber of the talent you need. We know the situations you face and leverage our unmatched network to find the right leader who aligns with your strategy and culture.

Global Collaborators

Our footprint spans the globe. We bring the right team and the right resources to each engagement, regardless of where it is. We collaborate to share ideas, contacts and insights, giving our clients an impressive reach and global perspective.

Search Experts

Our approach isn’t the same as everyone else’s- and that is by design. Finding talent is our specialty because leaders the caliber our clients seek are not “advertising” their availability. Our industry focus and executive experience allows us to speak with candidates as colleagues and make high-level assessments. This approach is proven to deliver differential leadership.

We’re humbled to hear clients talk about their experience with us

It’s a great partnership.  What they do well is communication and getting to know us.  They are seasoned professionals and always timely.  This is our 3rd time working with them and it is always a pleasure.

VP of Talent Acquisition, multi-national CPG organization

From the onset and through the entire process for our CEO search, K&R provided a ‘human touch’ by being authentic and adding a personal touch which gave us the ability to create trust; K&R is the go-to search firm in this industry.

Board Chairman, regional seed company

Our choice of firms came down to K&R and another firm that specialized in private equity. We went with K&R because they had more food focus and we were very satisfied with the quality of advice we got and the final slate of candidates.
