Longtime leader at Cleveland’s Anderson|Biro Executive Search named a firm partner
CLEVELAND – MARCH 11, 2022 – Anderson|Biro, LLC, a leading executive recruiting firm specializing in the real estate settlement services space, is thrilled to announce that Kent Bondi, the company’s longtime director of recruiting, is now an equity partner in the company.
Bondi, who got his professional start in the banking industry, came to Anderson|Biro in 2011. Since his arrival, he has been integral in the firm’s sustained growth and success, thanks to his hard work, precision and outgoing personality that connects with recruits and clients looking to hire alike.
“Kent is an incredibly dedicated team player, and he is an achiever in all facets of the job. He produces for our team members, stakeholders and clients,” said Ryan Anderson, the co-founder of Anderson|Biro. “He’s a perfect blend of a people person who has the attention to detail needed to succeed for what we do.”
Bondi credits Anderson and co-founder Eric Biro for instilling a strong internal work culture that has led to a successful environment for all team members. Just like Anderson|Biro is committed to building strong relationships between its clients and recruits, Bondi said the operation has created a winning formula within its own operation.
“Eric and Ryan go above and beyond for their employees. They provide all of us with the tools to be successful, and we work hard to build each other up professionally and personally. There is never a dull moment here,” Bondi said. “The camaraderie throughout the team separates us from the rest. We have each other’s backs and work hard to get the job done for each other and our clients.”
His ascent to partner is the first of its kind for the company, which was founded by Anderson and Biro in 2007. However, Anderson hinted that elevating more team members to this level could be possible in the future. Biro identified Bondi as a leader during their first meeting and lauded Bondi for his passion and hard work.
“When we interviewed Kent more than 10 years ago to join our firm, we knew we had an opportunity in front of us," Biro said. “Ryan and I witnessed passion and drive that still stands today. Those traits have served Kent well as he’s gone from executive recruiter to now partner.”
Bondi is also active in the real estate title industry as a member and leader of the Ohio Land Title Association. For Bondi, being involved and ready to lead is just part of the job description when you work at a place so tuned in to the profession as Anderson|Biro.
“We eat, sleep and breathe title insurance here,” Bondi said. “When someone in the industry chooses Anderson|Biro, you are getting a partner that knows what you do and is committed to providing the best possible service to clients with the most practical solutions for your team.”
In addition to title insurance companies and underwriters, Anderson|Biro employs its innovative, client-focused search methods with large servicers, lenders, iBuyers, law firms, real estate brokers, fintech companies, and venture capital/private equity investors interacting with the settlement services sector.
Bondi is a Cleveland native who loves every unique thing our city has to offer, especially the atmosphere and restaurants of the Little Italy neighborhood. He is a former Cleveland Cavaliers locker room attendant who still loves going to area sporting events and Cedar Point with his young family. He and his wife, Amanda, have two children – a 7-year-old son, Anthony, and a 5-year-old daughter, Alaina. When he’s not at work or with his family, you’ll often find him with a core group of friends, many of whom he has known since kindergarten.
