Let's Get Real.
New York philanthropist Keith Mann believes strongly in supporting the local police, especially when the cops are under fire. At a time when many believe the police should be made to answer for indiscriminate shootings of black people, and more and more protests spring up around the country, Mann shows his appreciation for the boys in blue.
Last January, he made it a point to have lunch delivered to the 54th Precinct. He repeated the gesture in February to make sure it was noticed, saying the officers deserved to be thanked for their service, and not attacked while they are doing their jobs. He adds also that policemen have families and are people too behind their uniforms. Their training and how they react to situations that civilians never face is what makes them different.
Mann fears rising violence for the police. Us against them mentality is detrimental to society as a whole. He feels citizens should be ready to step in and help the police if need be. Mann encourages all citizens to support their local police department. Rallies have been held in support of police officers during the past year.
Keith Mann has worked in the executive search industry for the past 15 years. He began his career with Dynamic Associates as Manager of the Alternate Investments Division. Mann rose through the ranks until he was vice president. He founded Dynamics Search Partners in 2009 and is acting CEO. He is an expert in hedge fund compensation, staffing, and hiring.
A dedicated philanthropist, Mann last year held a fundraiser for Uncommon Schools to help low-income students go to college.
