Cornerstone International Group-KC has merged with Career Partners International-KC to meet the demands of companies in Kansas City and surrounding areas by providing a local, one-stop solution for Retained Executive Search, Leadership Development, and Career Transition Services.
Helping companies thrive through people for over 30 years
We announced back in October that Cornerstone International Group – KC was merging with Career Partners International – KC. Business partners, Dave Mullikin and Dan Heiman are pleased to make it official by introducing the name of their new firm – M2H Partners (link to KC Business Journal announcement below). M2H Partners was born out of our desire to offer client companies in Kansas City and the immediate region a full-service firm with broader experience and talent in career services unlike any other in the region. Dave wanted to be in the search business and Dan wanted to be in coaching. When they met over a year ago, it didn’t take long for them to realize they should just merge the businesses together… and M2H Partners was born!
As we all know, career services are vital to a company’s change management life-cycle. Depending on the service(s) needed, a company may seek assistance from many sources. M2H Partners hopes to take out some of the legwork and offer a comprehensive set of services to its customers.
The newly formed company is comprised of two long-standing local firms with local ownership and that will not change. We each bring years of experience to our respective crafts. Both firms’ owners and consultants have been serving clients in the Kansas City region for 30+ years offering Retained Executive Search through Cornerstone International Group – Kansas City and Career Transition and Leadership Development Coaching services through Career Partners International Kansas City (CPI-KC).
Dave Mullikin, Principal of CPI-KC states “our clients appreciate having a partner firm with a single point of contact to provide these key offerings with unparalleled quality of service, insights, and efficiencies.” For me, the combination makes sense in that we can now address the entire life cycle of career services for our clients and we will continue to do three things really well together; Retained Executive Search, Leadership Development Coaching, and Career Transition Coaching. Couple that with our strong commitment to serving and now, our clients have the best of both worlds!
A new website and rebranding effort is underway and will be announced soon.
