Kenneth has always had a passion for the Power of Marketing. He began his career in the Consumer Products industry where he was exposed to the science of packaging, brand and market awareness and strategic planning. As a Vice President of Sales and Marketing for several national brands he created and implemented marketing campaigns to all the major retailers in the US and Canada.
Kenneth, knowing the importance of the right fit required by both the hiring company and the employee, made a natural transition to owning two Executive Search firms located in Cleveland and Montreal. This market enhanced his knowledge of the challenge faced by executives on both sides of the table in making the right hire.
Using his knowledge of marketing and the job market for executives his next move took his career focus to the next level. Kenneth has spent the last 16 years in the Corporate Outplacement and Executive Career Management industry. He has worked with 100’s of professionals unemployed or employed with a desire not to just get a job but advance their career and life. He believes that there are four elements in a career that must be present. Passion, Stability, Culture and Income.
Kenneth has a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Kent State University and is finishing his MBA and now lives in Chicago.
