Meet Our CEO

With more than 30 years of executive search experience, Bruce has successfully completed thousands of leadership assignments across the financial services spectrum, with a focus on community banking.

Prior to founding Kershner & Co., in 1988, Bruce developed and led the financial services practice at U.S. Search. There, his recruiting assignments spanned across various industries, including banking, real estate, construction and investment banking.

For several years during the late 90’s and into 2000, Bruce formed a strategic alliance with SNL Financial in Charlottesville, Virginia. While this affiliation lasted several years, the partnership paved the way for KCO to become a leader in recruiting executives for the community and regional bank industry.

Bruce is lives in the Washington, D.C. area and holds a B.S. in Business and Marketing from the University of Maryland, Robert H. Smith School of Business. Bruce is active in his community, is an avid golfer, boater and enjoys travelling and photography.
