Learning about a brilliant man is one thing, educating ourselves on his work ethics, accomplishments; his role in making a change is quite different. Although it is true that Keith Mann has established and is the Managing Director at Dynamics Executive Search, the difference he has made in the lives of people is a far more phenomenal story. His premier executive search firm not only places the well-qualified and educated with personnel the companies need, but he did so by having the unique talent to identify aspects that were greatly underserved.
Now all of this may sound like another “entrepreneur making it big” story, however there is far more to Keith Mann than what meets the impressive eye. Keeping in mind his talent to identify what is underserved, we should all consider him a true role model for change.
Uncommon Schools is a program that bridges the gap between low-income students not having the same education or opportunities than those who do. Uncommon Schools sets its sights on ensuring each and every student has college within his/her reach. Personally, I think the name of this program is very fitting given it is very uncommon for people to have that much compassion in our world today, and apparently Keith Mann had the same opinion. Holding a fundraising event for Uncommon Schools, Keith Mann and Dynamics Search Partners raised in excess of $22,000 which were used to sponsor student testing at a new high school. However, prior to this, DSP had already dedicated $10,000 to ensure all students testing needs were met. I would venture a professional guess that Keith Mann understands the importance of a good education, and believes all can achieve despite the background of the person.
With there being far more than simply the “dynamic” entrepreneur, the philanthropist in Keith Mann shows a true compassion for change and our children, just to name one act of generosity. His background may serve as his profession, but his ability to act on where there is a need, serves as an inspiration. He continues his efforts to make the changes needed, as we continue to follow his career and unyielding compassion.
