I'm a married father of three living in Overland Park, KS. I moved to Kansas City in 1999 for my first recruiting role and have been in the industry ever since. I've primarily focused on technical recruiting for Kansas City roles during that time, but have also worked in vendor management, regional recruiting and account management. I like to focus on long-term candidate relationships and helping people to grow their career.
Why I love recruiting...
I love working with people and helping them to land the right opportunities to achieve their goals, whatever those goals may be.
When I'm not working, I love to...
Hang out with my wife and kids, which includes playing FIFA and/or Madden, coaching baseball or soccer, and going to concerts or Sporting games. I also like to go running, read or catch a movie. I am a hopeless Star Wars and LOTR fanatic.

Kenn is an outstanding recruiter, he goes beyond just the concern of getting a placement, he understands the importance of building a long term relationship with the candidate, and communicates as much information as possible about the company and its culture to make sure it will be a good match,
I've been working with Recruiters for 10 years, and I would say that he stands out among all of them.
