Keith Mann, a businessman and director of Dynamics Search Partners, is ensuring the next generation of business professionals is prepared by offering a scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors with Uncommon Charter High School. The high is located in Brooklyn and is one of more than 40 schools managed by Uncommon Schools throughout New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey. The non-profit focuses on managing schools in low income urban areas with high risk students who are disadvantaged. Keith Mann has partnered with Uncommon Schools for a few years and is impressed with the work they do to ensure students are more prepared and motivated to graduate high school and pursue a college degree.
Mann’s scholarship, the Scholarship of Professional Achievement, will go to one graduating senior of Uncommon Charter High School who completes the application process and writes the best 1,000 word essay on what a college education would do to help them achieve their goals.
Mann has worked in the executive search industry for 15 years. He started with Dynamics Executive Search and moved quickly through the ranks of the company. He launched the Alternative Investment Practice within the company after seeing there was a great need for an executive search company within the sector. In 2009 Mann started Dynamics Search Partners. The company fills client mandates around the world for some of the top alternative investment companies. As a man who seeks out the best professionals in the business, it’s no wonder Mann is looking to educate the next generation of talented professionals. In the past year, Dynamics Search Partners and Mann have visited the school and met with seniors to discuss real world technical skills that will assist them in the future.
