Keith Mann seems to have a knack for finding a niche and filling it. In the world of business and finance, he noticed that hedge fund companies were an underserved population when it came to hiring and staffing search companies, so he decided to do something about it. In 2002, he began the Alternative Investment Practice within Dynamics Executive Search, but he would use this practice in 2006 and expand it to include the private equity industry. By 2009, had created what is now Dynamics Search Partners and devoted it entirely to the staffing needs of the alternative investment industry.
Students who are seeking the scholarship must apply for it and submit a 1,000-word essay on how a college education will help them achieve their business goals. Once a student is selected to receive the scholarship, he or she can use the money towards tuition at whatever four-year learning institution he or she desires. This scholarship will encourage students who may not have seen any means by which they could attend college to now strive for and achieve their goals. It is Kevin Mann’s hope that the students can use the degrees they earn to find success in the business world.
