With immediate effect, Wayne Redovian acts as Practice Leader Technology at Kennedy Executive Search & Consulting, coaching and guiding Kennedy’s executive search operations of IT leadership roles across North America and Europe.
Wayne Redovian states: “Technology drives continuous creativity, improvement and evolution, reducing the cost and time for a product, service or idea to come to market. To really exploit the opportunities, you have to go beyond the CIO, to engage with other C-suite executives, many of whom now possess a growing influence on technology-related decisions. Today’s technology is expanding at an extraordinary pace, so it is important to follow industry influencers and thought leaders to stay in the loop and learn new trends and best practices. This is bread-and-butter to us. This is where we come in by combining a deep understanding of the local tissue of every market we serve whilst having the international view that spans two continents: We know what is going on in our homemarket. At the same time, we are in constant communication with our Partner offices here in the USA and in Europe. We know the reality of the job market in 2017. We know what moves clients and candidates and our job is to match both.”
Wayne Redovian, Managing Partner and Vice President of Operations & Marketing has been with Integrated People Solutions since 2006. Wayne has a Bachelor of Arts, in Economics from the California State University, Sacramento and a Master of Arts in Economics from Pennsylvania State University. He also completed a graduate certificate program in Program Management at the University of Denver.
Kennedy Executive Search’s CEO Jorg Stegemann says “Technology drives the world today for everyone reading this and yet in recruitment, it is a very distinct, very complex area. We needed someone who knows the IT environment inside and out and we have found that person with Wayne Redovian. Wayne brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with over twenty five years in Human Resource leadership roles at several multi-billion dollar corporations, including, US WEST/ Qwest, Dex Media and ServiceMagic/ InterActive Corporation. He has led key strategic functions in recruiting, executive search and staffing as well as workforce planning, HRIS, compensation, process and training/development. The focus of Wayne’s executive search has been within technology, placing hundreds of IT professionals each month at US WEST/ Qwest as well as all key executive level placements. At Integrated People Solutions, Wayne’s executive search focus has been on key lT leadership roles. He has placed Chief Information and Technology officers in Fortune 500 companies, small to mid-cap businesses as well as non- profit organizations.”
Stegemann adds “Wayne Redovian brings in the leadership and understanding needed to take Kennedy Executive Search to the next level to become an even more credible player for executive search in the technology industries.”

Mr. Stegemann concludes, “2017 is our friend and so will be the next years. We hear from clients and candidates alike that they love working with boutique executive search firms. They know that they will always be close to the boss who is actively involved in every single search. We do not delegate strategic tasks to junior staff such as large, integrated firms typically do. All Partners at Kennedy have been in executive search for 10 years minimum. Many of us have held leadership functions in the practices we serve today and we have been in the shoes of our clients and candidates. Every Partners is involved in every search we run. When you add the international, cross-continental vision of a network, you have it all: we talk to each other every month and every week and exchange trends, best practices, candidates and clients. Our clients and candidates tell us we are different and we are proud of that.”
