The Kanthal Group does Career Coaching differently. We know what it takes to be an effective leader and coach you at all stages of your career, not just when you’re in between jobs.
Darren Kanthal is an experienced career coach, combining a passion for developing leaders with a deep expertise in the career process and over 20 years of experience in Human Resources and Talent Acquisition – a triple threat in the industry. A New Yorker at heart, Darren has a uniquely unapologetic, yet compassionate style and his individualized, results-oriented approach helps leaders show up as the best versions of themselves at every stage of their career.
Darren’s career coaching builds upon an extensive background of HR consulting and staff augmentation projects. He led the strategic and tactical development of HR and recruitment programs, policies and procedures, reducing the pain-points managers experienced from employee engagement and progressive action, recruiting, and the day-to-day rigors of work.
Prior to starting The Kanthal Group, Darren held leadership roles across various facets of Human Resources. He has designed and implemented talent management programs in addition to several successful recruitment programs including college, veteran, and employee referral programs.
Darren strongly values candor, adventure, humor, and connection. He is an avid mountain biker and snowboarder, loves adventuring outdoors and seeing live music. One of his favorite sayings is ‘free of mind’. And, he lives with his girlfriend, her two kids, and his beloved dog, Marvin.
