Ken and his team operate differently than other sourcing firms. They identify themselves as a boutique firm, focused on their client’s culture, challenges, talent needs and organizational “fit”. Operating with a strong understanding of our organization, they approach each job opportunity with a keen awareness of the talent market, our history, and story.  This allows them to consistently source and identify, the right talent, at the right time, for the right opportunity.
