Founded in 1981, Kimmel & Associates is a national executive search firm specializing in the construction, waste and recycling, supply chain/logistics, and automotive industries. We are one of the largest employers in downtown Asheville, and we strive to be one of the best places to work in Western North Carolina. We offer a dynamic, unrivaled workplace, and we ensure that all of our employees have the tools they need to be successful in their roles. Our commitment to our employees is evidenced by our retention rates: more than half of our employees have been with Kimmel & Associates for a decade or longer.
In our 35+ years of experience in the recruitment industry, we have learned one important thing: successful people do not fit into a box. From the highly competitive candidates who are looking for a new challenge to those who have struggled in previous roles and are looking for a second chance to reach their potential,we want special people. What do we mean by special people? We have compiled a list of attributes of those people who have been successful in this role.
We are looking for people who want more out of their jobs than punching a clock and collecting a paycheck. We are looking for people who want to make a real difference in people’s lives, who want to push themselves to achieve more, and who will always pursue excellenceover mediocrity. We want employees who believe in themselves and believe in our company.
Executive search is both highly demanding and highly rewarding. In their first year, our employees earn an average of more than $50K, and our longer-tenured consultants earn well into the six figures.
