Meet the Team

Chris Pestell

Chris Pestell

Associate Director

Chris joins KM4Talent with over 15 years’ experience as a leading multi-sector specialist with expertise in developing valuable partnerships with clients, placing talented middle manager and senior leaders in a range of sectors across the UK and Europe.

We are thrilled to have Chris on board as part of the KM4HR family; Chris & Kris (this could get confusing) have successfully worked together previously. When the opportunity arose to work together again, this was something that both could not ignore and were keen to re-establish this partnership. We are under no doubt that our clients and candidates will benefit from his experience, professionalism, robust relationship-building approach, and passion for recruitment.

Chris' success to date has been to assess the best in class talent that adds significant return on investment and helps businesses to thrive. Chris will concentrate on developing the Interim and senior offering focusing on Finance and Technology; this is an area Chris will bring significant advantage, a wealth of knowledge to KM4Talent

Kris McMahon

Managing Director

Having successfully worked for several market leaders in HR Recruitment and building a great network over 20 years, Kris felt it was time to work with his contacts through his own business.

KM4HR was born in 2017, named after his four children. Since this time, the organisation hasn't looked back, giving the market a new, well-rounded exciting HR recruitment approach, an approach different from its competitors.

Due to continued growth at KM4HR and the clear direction from clients for us to work in other recruitment disciplines, KM4Talent was started in November 2019 and has continued to go from strength to strength.

Chris and Kris have worked together before, and he is delighted to work with him again to drive the KM4Talent and Search business forward.
