Hiring peace of mind.

There is no such thing as a candidate who is “good enough.”

Senior executives drive your company’s performance, vision, and culture. Yet often, management teams look for candidates who meet functional requirements, but fall short in terms of fit, culture, and leadership qualities.

Today more than ever, candidates who are “good enough”…just aren’t. There’s no time for under-performing placements or costly, embarrassing mis-hires. We know the importance of talented executives, but even more so, those leaders with the broader personal attributes necessary for true, long-term success.

Our clients will tell you: when they hire us to find real talent, they know they’re hiring peace of mind.

More concerned about your business

"Kensington Stone will do ten times the work that other firms would do. They are far more concerned about a client's business than larger firms would be."

A very positive experience for all concerned

“Kurt has a personalised approach to both the organisation recruiting and the candidates themselves. His attention to detail, consideration for what the company needed to achieve and his personal care and support for the candidates made it a very positive experience for all concerned. It certainly didn’t feel like we had hired just any consultant!”

Remarkable tenacity and vision

"Kurt has remarkable tenacity and vision. He builds a special relationship with his candidates and his clients. His unique gift from a candidate’s point of view is the very personal interest he takes in every part of the process including all the issues around family and the impact on the changes in every aspect of one’s life. He guided me, nudged me and cajoled me to a new life for which I will always be grateful to him."

The best search executive I’ve ever worked with

"I greatly enjoyed working with Kensington Stone Associates. Having seen Kurt Weyerhauser’s work both as an executive candidate and now a client (for two different companies), he is by far the most thorough and the best search executive I've ever worked with.

"Kurt not only ensures he has a deep understanding of his client and his candidates, he only recommends the very best, and he goes above and beyond to ensure that any finalists provide a great and lasting 'fit'."

Deep understanding of values

"Working with Kensington Stone on an executive search is quite different to other experiences I have had in making senior appointments. Their approach is predicated on understanding deeply the values and experiences that have shaped an individual's character and only then assessing their aptitude for the role. They are as much interested in how someone has achieved, as they're in what has been achieved."
