Each stage of a company’s growth presents different needs and circumstances from a communications perspective. We have deep experience placing communications professionals and other strategic hires at companies at every stage.
Early Stage: Finding the first communications hire can be tough. You need a leader who wants to build. And not just teams and programs but also a company. We find the candidates that are up for this unique challenge and thrive as the initial hire.
Growth Stage: This critical stage needs true storytellers who are helping to run the function and tell the narrative. We also help you figure out your hiring strategy and timing of critical hires as you build out a world class communications function.
Public: Communications is essential for public companies and having the right players in this function is critical. From corporate to product and beyond, you need the right talent and we know how to find it.
The role of communications in venture capital firms has elevated over the last decade. KCP has been in lock step with this need and has seen how the function has evolved from the earliest moves and trendsetters in this area. We have a proven history of placing candidates in venture firms to support portfolio needs as well as the firm itself.
KCP understands what makes a great PR agency candidate. We’ve been working with the top agencies for years and specialize in identifying the right fit in terms of culture and skill set for each firm.
