Kevin O’Neill

Founder + Managing Partner

For Kevin, the genesis to launch Acertitude was fueled by an innate desire to improve the status quo, and his intention to leave the world a better place than how he found it. Kevin’s achievements leading a team of executive search consultants have evolved from a fairly simple set of ideas: “My success is not guarded by my fear of failure” he says, “but rather from my close awareness of my weaknesses.”

He takes this same approach to understanding his clients’ business goals and talent needs, keenly analyzing the whole picture before isolating the tipping point that will lead to success. As founder + managing partner, Kevin strives to address the weak points he sees in our industry’s business models to stretch the boundaries of what’s possible for our clients’ organizations in their discovery and retention of great talent.

Kevin brings over 25 years’ consulting experience to our global search practice, and a proven track record serving C-level executives in consumer, life sciences, industrial, and private equity practices. This initiative builds on his role with O’Neill Consulting Group, which Kevin founded in 1996, and will continue to lead and manage.

Kevin spent his early career with a large search firm in Philadelphia, following client management roles with investment banks Merrill Lynch and Kidder, Peabody & Co.
