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 IS A RECRUITMENT COMPANY wITH over 20 years’ experience in Talent Management Services.

Kona Associates provides strategic value to executives and businesses throughout the US, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the UK, with a global network of high achievers who are not actively on the open market


Key markets are Gaming, Telecoms and Management Consulting.

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.
