Kenny Dubin
President/CEO

Mr. Dubin graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1986 and immediately started working for a large public accounting firm.

In the fall of 1993, he started a temporary accounting firm that ran successfully until 1998. That year Kenny formed The Dubin Group to provide administrative, accounting, and human resources temporary, direct hire, and temp to hire placement services. Kenny has continued to be a top producer for permanent accounting and administrative placements in the Delaware Valley.

Kenny has two boys and enjoys spending time with his family on the beach at the Jersey Shore. After almost two decades in the recruiting business, he still loves the recruiting process and the ability to help companies and candidates finding the right fit in their career paths. Kenny is also involved in numerous local charities.
