Testimonials

Kim and his team’s focus on helping us improve the diversity at our firm is admirable. Not only have they introduced us to some fantastic talent, they have helped us develop ways to become more top of mind to so many candidates who may not have considered our firm before.

Eric Bacolas, Chief Talent Officer, W2O Group

KLH & Associates is much more than an executive search firm.  What I appreciate most about Kim Hunter and KLH by extension is the senior partnership and counsel.  We’re both motivated by more than just numbers or a specific search or issue at hand.  It’s great to have a true partner in Kim that is focused on the bigger picture and making a difference.   

Soon Mee Kim, EVP, Global Diversity & Inclusion Leader, Porter Novelli

We hired KLH & Associates based on their stellar reputation in the communications industry. From the start it was clear their reputation was well deserved. Kim and his team engaged quickly, developed a detailed understanding of what we needed, helped us to refine our requirements, and began generating a diverse and talented pool of candidates. They have a unique understanding of the importance of diversity and through their vast network they were able to identify professionals that might not be otherwise identifiable in the market. Further, Kim worked with me as a partner throughout the entire process, providing valuable counsel in selecting the best candidates for the job and following up at the end of the engagement to ensure our expectations were met.

“KLH and Associates played a key role in helping to identify a top notch senior communications leader for my team. Kim Hunter and his team were easy to work with and very responsive.

Kimberly Goode, (former) Vice President, Communications and Corporate Affairs, Northwestern Mutual

Every field needs a conscience. No matter what line of work we are in, we need a voice that never stops pushing up to place our highest values ahead of every other consideration, that keeps front and center what really matters, that will not let us forget we are here to make a difference for the better. KLH and Associates, under the leadership of Managing Partner Kim L. Hunter, is just such a conscience for the communications field. For us at Burson- Marsteller, and for me personally as a communications professional, KLH, and Kim, in particular, have played an enormous role in making sure we never lose sight of the responsibility to advance diversity and inclusion as far and as deep as possible, whether it is across our firm, throughout our sector or in the world around us. Yet, more than a ceaseless voice for doing what is right and smart, KLH and Kim have been effective partners in taking action to make change happen. With their help, we at Burson-Marsteller have deepened our commitment to hiring outstanding people and changing our culture in ways that make a significant difference for the better at our firm. They have been with us every step of the way. We look forward to continuing to walk forward with them to take hold of the opportunities that make us an even greater place to work for everyone. They are our change agency, and we are proud to work with them.

Don Baer, worldwide chair and CEO, Burson-Marsteller

“I am a firm believer that ‘results matter,’ and our engagement of KLH & Associates to help us identify and recruit multiple team members across the communications discipline has proved again and again that they share that same philosophy.”
