Kona Associates - Executive Talent Management

Kona Associates

Note from the Founder Lee Charles - The name Kona comes from the Ironman World Championship which takes place in Kona, Hawaii every October and which I completed in 2011. In order to qualify you must gain a slot from a previous Ironman event, of which there are only a certain amount. The competition is fiercely competitive and gaining your entry can take quite a few attempts! The Ironman involves a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and then running a marathon. The commitment and dedication applied to this goal is mirrored in our approach to work, our clients and running our company.

Kona Associates was established in August 2011 and we have over 20 years’ experience in Talent Management Services.

We work with a range of businesses from SMEs to global blue-chip organisations.

Kona Associates is a boutique recruitment firm specialising in Executive Search, Technology and Sales throughout the UK and EMEA.

Our industry focus is within Financial Services, Payments, Consulting and Telecoms.

We work in partnership with our clients and understand the importance of investing time in finding the perfect candidate.

Kona Associates strive to not only provide a first-class service, but to completely understand and embrace our clients’ growth plans, goals and culture.

All aspects of our organisation are focussed on excellence in delivery at all times. As we work with a small pool of clients we can guarantee our complete attention and focus on their requirements, helping us form partnerships in the longer term. We provide quality not quantity, we don’t inundate clients with irrelevant CVs.
