Keith Mann: Entreprenuer and Philanthropist
I went with my Dad to Poconos this past weekend to look at investment properties when I met a guy who was there just for a quick weekend get-a-way. Not that this is anything out of the ordinary since I travel a lot and have a tendency to always come ho me with new friends. But this guy, Keith Mann, really inspired me to start thinking seriously about investing, like maybe not in property but investing in my future.
Keith Mann is an experienced investment banker who specializes in alternative investments and hedge fund services. He is also Co- Founder and Managing Director for Dynamic Search Partners. Dynamic Search Partners is a staffing service and recruiting firm that helps find opportunities for investment professionals and match qualified executives with top hedge funds.
Mann began his career in 1995, working as the Manager of the Alternative Investments Division of Dynamic Associates. Over time he rose through the ranks, eventually becoming Managing Director, then Senior Vice President. In 2001, he co-founded Dynamic Search Partners, and has built relationships with several major equity firms and a reputation for finding quality talent.
Dynamic Search Partners is not only a leader in their field; the company is also investing in the future. Keith Mann has organized several charity events and fundraisers, including a mixer at which his company donated $8,000 to Hope for Heroes. Recently, PR News Wire announced Dynamic Search Partners partnership with Uncommon Schools, a nonprofit network of charter schools that help urban youth close the educational gap. The goal of the partnership is to create a consistent platform for Dynamic Search Partners to assist students in learning practical skills that could aid them in college and beyond. In 2013, a five member team from Dynamic Search Partners, including Keith Mann, visited the school. They toured the campus, sat in on classes, and met individually with every senior. They then held two resume building workshops with the senior class, individually advising, reviewing, and editing each students resume. The company also donated $10,000 to the school, and allows the seniors to send in their resumes for updates whenever they need to.
