Alex Emmanuele
Director of Innovations

Alex, a recent graduate of Hampshire College, first joined K&A in 2014 as an undergraduate intern, and then worked with us as a fellow while completing his Division III project—a documentary on the infusion of empathy in education through the methods of “design thinking,” an innovative and intuitive process that helps generate creative solutions to difficult challenges. Having “forged his own path” at Hampshire by pursuing the questions that most engaged and interested him, he has now joined the staff of K&A in the role of Director of Innovation. He will help us develop and use new methods and tools to improve our work and find better and better ways to help our clients achieve “change for learning.” In addition to providing support to members of the project and search teams, Alex will expand K&A’s public domain and social media presence, improve company communications, and help enhance our pedagogy. His other interests include basketball—he dreams of playing in the NBA, hopes to stay injury-free, and has plans to expand the firm to include a skills development branch for struggling athletes.
