CEO and Author
Not for Sale

Not For Sale –

Not For Sale: Finding Center in the Land of Crazy Horse is a unique iconoclastic memoir that traces one businessman’s journey deep into Indian country, and even deeper into his own soul. In a corporate world hallmarked by the never-ending quest for bigger,  better, more, this CEO of one of America’s oldest family businesses contemplates an organizational structure where the goal is to do less, not more. In a 24/7 internet-wired world consumed with roles, responsibilities, and external accomplishments, Kevin learns to look inward for meaning and purpose.

Books can be pre-ordered and additional information can be found at www.kevindhancock.com.

The Voice of Purpose –

While I wear many hats, my life and career has always been focused on people. As an award-winning human resources executive, entrepreneur, thought leader, writer, speaker, theatre director, producer, and founder of World Child Cancer USA, my passion and purpose involves enlightening, inspiring, and teaching others.

For more than two decades, I have lived and worked throughout the US, Europe, Africa, and Asia. My career credits include Head of Global Employee Engagement for Tesla Motors, VP of HR for the Fortune 300 medical device company, Stryker and Broadway theatre.

I am a contributing writer for Forbes and Huffington Post and the author of How to Find a Job, Career and Life You Love. I am currently working on my second book to help organizations transform their employee engagement, culture and business success.

Enhancing my education is an ongoing affair, but I have previously studied Labor Relations at Cornell University, New York State School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and Advanced Leadership at Harvard Business School. I hold a BA from California State University, Fullerton, as well as a BS and JD from Saratoga University School of Law.
