Who We Are

Raising Executive Search Standards Since 1997

The Story of Largent & Associates


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.

Companies struggled to find hires who met their expectations and were good cultural fits. Candidates were often “left in the dark” during the process due to limited feedback from recruiters. Ultimately, turnover rates were high.

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.

His unique approach uses a process that creates a level playing field for all candidates, making vetting and selection easier and more effective for hiring authorities.

Clients of Largent & Associates value that our first step is to understand the vision a hiring manager has for a given position. After all, effective vetting hinges on accurately communicating expectations. Additionally, our vetting process is executed consistently. This not only creates a better experience for candidates but also allows us to gather and organize relevant information, supporting data-driven hiring decisions.
