Key Corporate Services – Our History

Dave Kerns and Jeff Wilson founded Key Corporate Services in 2000 in Fishers, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. Having met and worked together at the same large recruiting firm in the 1980s and 1990s, they leveraged their knowledge and experience to establish a human capital consulting firm that serves both companies and candidates at a higher level.

Enjoying rapid growth, the company added practice areas and brought on new recruiters who have further strengthened the company’s areas of expertise and reach. In addition to establishing major new key accounts for the company, they have also led the development of the company’s behavioral interviewing process and are assisting with training other recruiters in this highly effective interviewing technique. Today, Key Corporate Services has 13 recruiters and provides search and consulting services to major corporations in the United States and around the world. Industries served by the company include finance and accounting, pharmaceuticals and biotech, manufacturing/ engineering, consumer products and horticulture, industrial chemicals, and food ingredients.

Successfully taking on the challenges of the economic downturn, Key Corporate Services has continued to grow. In 2012, the company was listed by the Indianapolis Business Journal as one of the Top 10 search firms by size in the Indianapolis area. To fulfill its goal of sustained growth, the company welcomes inquiries from experienced recruiters, as well as from people new to the recruiting industry that have industry-specific experience or a business-to-business sales background.
