David Kinkead




David Kinkead is celebrating his 32nd year as a trusted advisor to global industrial manufacturing clients. He is a respected leader in the retained search field, has testified before Senate sub-committees, spoken to key industry groups and written widely on the recruitment and retention of commercial leaders.

He co-founded and chairs the Small Search Firm Forum within IACPR (International Association of Corporate and Professional Recruiters), an organization that brings together senior retained search and corporate talent management executives to share new ideas and best practices.

Following graduation from UCLA with a BA in Economics, David has spent his entire career recruiting executives and consulting with corporate clients.

David and the firm have a very narrow focus on commercial leadership assignments for diversified industrial clients, especially manufacturers of highly engineered products.
