In his 20+ year career in capital equipment sales in the technology and medical industries, Kyle Largent was recruited a number of times. He noticed that the process was often problematic—for both the employer and candidate.

Kyle knew there had to be a way to improve the recruitment process. Applying his sales processes and skills learned selling capital equipment, Kyle founded Largent & Associates in 1997 to achieve better executive recruiting outcomes for all stakeholders in the Life Science and Medical industries.
