Keene Advisory Group is a retained executive search firm known nationally for impactful client-driven solutions to diverse talent acquisition needs. We present an expanded, organic and diverse slate of candidates representing the true marketplace for every search engagement by utilizing our network of consultants and professional and industry affiliations combined with our “both/and” approach to executive search. We recruit C-level and emerging executives, general management, board directors, commercial leadership, and functional executives across various industries.
At Keene Advisory Group, our consultants subscribe to an inclusive both/and view of executive talent which means slates of qualified, quality candidates should also be diverse. When it comes to building the ideal candidate profile, we advise our clients on the nuances that come with traditional job qualifications, which can systemically exclude individuals from marginalized groups. We engage as to why those requirements are desired and we help build a candidate profile that is inclusive and meets the desired qualification for the role.
"Our hypothesis is that there are fantastic qualified candidates of color and women who are out there. It is incumbent upon the search firm and the companies to go out there and find them."
