Keith Mann is an authority in hedge fund investment and compensation and the executive search industry. As a search industry executive he focused on staffing and hiring strategy for global financial service companies. He was employed in the staff search industry for more than 15 years before he established Dynamic Search Partners (DSP) in 2009.Before DSP, Mr. Mann was the managing director of Dynamic Executive Search (DES) and then launched Alternative Investment Partners under the Dynamic Executive Search umbrella. DES focused on the hedge fund industry after identifying it as an undeserved area even though it was a market that was growing by leaps and bounds.
As the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DSP, Mr. Mann was responsible for the day to day operations and management of the company. Mann develops investment solutions for the hedge fund industry, as well as strategy for hiring and sustaining professional staff positions for clients. The solutions are developed on an individual basis for firms in the United States, Asia and Europe. DSP currently fill more than 200 positions annually.The idea for DSP came about after years of experience in the alternative investment area. Mann worked in the New York area where a booming and aggressive market existed. After identifying the need for the type of services Mann was trained in, he decided there was a huge void in an industry to be filled. Mann declares his success in the industry is a combination of staying focused and exercising before work each day. The ideas he develops for investments often come from identifying a need and finding solutions to meet those needs. He often fine tunes ideas and solutions to fit the ever changing current trends in the industry.
Keith Mann is most proud of his work with the Uncommon Schools of New York. The goal of the school system is to prepare students from low-income families to not only attend college, but become a college graduate and use their education to succeed in making a better life for themselves.Mann and DSP have set up a scholarship program that supports one Uncommon School graduate each year to attend a four year college. As an advocate of education with a high level of philanthropy, Mann is committed to identifying strong leaders and matching them with appropriate candidates to help cultivate success.
