Keith Mann got into the field of executive search about 15 years ago when he started working for Dynamics Executive Search as the Manager of the Alternative Investment Division. He rose the ladder to Vice President of the company and then started the Alternative Investment Practice within the same company in 2002. This move came about when Mann realized that the hedge fund industry was wildly lacking in terms of talent search. Executive search companies concentrated on other fields but didn’t pay much attention to the needs of the investment sector. Mann then took the new practice further in 2006 when it launched in the private equity industry.
Mann co-founded Dynamic Search Partners in 2009, which is a company that was established to cater to the growing needs of alternative investment firms regarding quality talent. With his experience in staffing, compensation, and hiring strategy, Keith Mann has been able to work with different companies, helping them with their hiring investments, development of effective recruitment platforms, and marketing. Mann is currently the CEO if DSP and has clients across Europe, the US, and Asia. He has established Dynamic Search Partner as a premier staffer for the hedge fund sector by sourcing quality talent across the sphere.
Besides his career accomplishments, Keith Mann has built a reputation as a prolific philanthropist. He is, particularly passionate about education and has proven it with his support for the Uncommon Schools, which is a network of charter public schools across New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. In 2015, Keith Mann and his company raised $22,000 for the Uncommon Schools not to mention DSP had already pledged $10,000 to cater to the testing needs of students. Speaking about raising money for the schools, Keith Mann said that he supports the mission of Uncommon Schools in providing a chance for everyone to attend college. The DSP-Uncommon Schools relationship is one has been thriving since 2013. Mann has also started the Keith and Keely Mann Scholarship that will be available for Uncommon Schools’ graduating seniors in Brooklyn.
