Kevin Coggins

Practice Leader

Kevin has focused on Agribusiness recruiting since 2011 and has placed many in key roles within the industry with a focus on Biotechnology, Crop Protection and Food. Some of those key placements include Regulatory Leads, Operations Leads, Global Product Development Leader and Managers, VP of Sales, VP of Marketing, Global and NAFTA Regulatory Managers, Global IT Leads, Controllers, Senior Product Managers, Senior Formulations Chemists, Compliance Managers, Accounting Managers and Supply Chain Leaders. He has a unique ability to understand all functions of a business and find the right candidates for the roles.

Kevin has been a business leader in the Raleigh community for many years where he owned a local business for 17 years that was voted, on multiple occasions, ‘Best of the Triangle’. He served as Board President of the Greater Raleigh Merchants Association for a record 3 consecutive terms. During this time, he led the rebranding of the association to “Shop Local Raleigh” which helped grow the organization 3X in the first year. Currently, he is Board Chair Emeritus of the Visual Art Exchange. These previous leadership roles have translated well to working with client companies to better understand business cultures and candidate placements.

Prior to his career as a small business owner and executive recruiter Kevin worked in banking where he rose to Department Head and managed a team of 24 exempt and non-exempt staff. In his free time, Kevin is an avid cyclist, cook, and tries to see how many music festivals he can attend in New Orleans each year.
