Company Information

Founded in 2001, kpCompanies (kpC) has grown from an idea to a standard of excellence in the executive search industry. kpCompanies was created to provide diversity and a more personalized executive search service to clients in the Twin Cities and nationwide. Word quickly spread about our brilliance, attention to detail, high-level of service, diverse slate of quality candidates and our sheer ability to deliver.

Our success speaks for itself, in 2021 96% of our placements were from an untapped global majority group.

Job Description


kpCompanies is seeking a disciplined, self-starter administrator, with attention to detail to join our team. This position requires strong verbal/written communication and organizational skills for a candidate to be successful. The Executive Admin + Project Coordinator will provide executive level support to the CEO, acting as a liaison to internal and external audiences, and managing specific projects and plans of work. This role will also work closely with our Business Development, Operations and Service Delivery to make our processes and procedures more efficient.


We believe in practices that create real equity and pay parity regardless of background or identity and we freely discuss compensation with all qualified candidates the first time we interview them. Saving the salary discussion for the first conversation allows us to fully understand the needs of each candidate and to ensure that qualified candidates, even those who’ve historically been overlooked and/or underpaid, don’t self-select out of the processes based on salary alone, as our experience and research suggest. In addition to those who opt out, because they fear the salary may be out of reach for them, we equally don’t want to miss out on conversations with candidates who are slightly over the range when in some cases the total compensation including factors such as bonuses, flexibility, and better health benefits, etc. may exceed expectations. Finally, as a search firm – we are always looking for top-notch talent to introduce to our clients. Should the salary or any other requirement not be fit, there is often a chance that someone on our team is working on another position you may be a better fit for. If you would like to discuss your qualifications for this role as well as discuss salary and compensation – just give us a call, and we’d be happy to discuss!
