Founder Departs Kincannon Reed

September 5, 2013 – Kelly Kincannon, founder and chairman of Kincannon & Reed, has announced that effective September 1, 2013, he has left the firm to pursue professional interests outside executive search. Mr. Kincannon started Kincannon & Reed in 1981 on the third floor of his home in St. Louis. In 1986 he moved the practice to metropolitan Washington, D.C. During the last 32 years, he recruited leaders in the food, agribusiness, and life sciences sectors across a broad spectrum of public, private, and cooperative structured companies, as well as industry associations and other non-profit organizations. Greg Duerksen, president of Kincannon & Reed, said: “Kelly's singular vision and insatiable drive created what remains the only global retained executive search firm focused on the interrelated realms of food, agribusiness, and life sciences. His wisdom and judgment will be missed.”
