Industry Pioneers

In 1991, Kevin Hand founded Hand & Associates, at a time when “Executive Coaching” was relatively unknown and not yet a globally ubiquitous business concept. Kevin began his career in telecommunications and technology, and was recruited by a management consulting firm in Chicago in the 1980s. A visionary in his field, Kevin saw that C-level executives could become even more productive and successful by adjusting certain elements of behavior, strategy, and perspective. With this in mind, he started Hand & Associates with 26 credit cards and an unrelenting commitment to performance and client service. In its early years, Hand & Associates quickly became recognized as specialists for West Coast businesses, particularly in entertainment and aerospace. Kevin and his team realized that large HR consulting firms were not fully customer-focused, providing one-on-one attention, or designing personalized and relevant executive development plans. By addressing these needs, Hand & Associates delivered critical value that helped companies and executives thrive through both boom and bust market conditions.
