In my line of work, I speak with a lot of potential hires on behalf of client organizations, so it’s not surprising that I’ve learned quite a bit about what candidates want and don’t want from me and the companies I represent. We believe that what makes KMR’s search process different from every other firms is our focus on becoming an extension of your business. We learn the ins and outs of your company, what makes you different and unique, so that we can represent your brand and your culture in the candidate marketplace. Beyond the job functions and expectations, we consult with a client organization to fully understand their marketplace, their culture, their pain points so we can provide to you a short list of the highest quality candidates for the role, not a long list of possibilities.

And for good reason – strong leadership in an organization not only drives results but is critical to a company’s success and overall health.
