Jim Kachidurian, President

Jim has more than 30 years of experience in providing staffing and project management services. A graduate of Wilkes University in 1982 with a BS in Business Administration and majors in Marketing, Management and Economics. He formed The Kent Group Associates, Inc. (KGA) as IT contingent staffing and solutions firm in 1990. This firm quickly morphed into an auditing and consulting practice primarily servicing, initially for the pharmaceutical and insurance industries, but expanded later to almost all industries.


 In 2009, KGA began working in the regulatory and compliance marketplace supplying ISO auditors to SGS, a Global Certifying body. The success of the audit practice within KGA has spurned the ongoing growth of the regulatory and compliance auditing and consulting practice.

Jim is experienced in the areas of vendor management, business analysis, information technology, and process improvement. His client roster has ranged from mid-size companies to multi-national corporations and included such notable companies as Computer Associates, SGS and Chubb Insurance, Mattel, Chrysler, Nestle, Estee Lauder, Pfizer and Barnes & Noble. He previously worked with Jarvis Walker and helped launch Carter McKenzie, both companies focused on staffing.
