David Kennedy, Partner
David Kennedy is the Co-Founder and a Partner at Serent Capital. Prior to co-founding Serent, David was the co-CEO of ServiceSource, an outsourcing business that grew revenues, profits, and employees organically by 10x under his leadership and returned over 20x to its shareholders over the same period.
Previously, David had been a founding partner of Crystal Springs Capital, which made a control investment in ServiceSource. That transaction allowed the founders of ServiceSource to achieve significant liquidity while still retaining operational involvement and participating in the success of the business.
Prior to his tenure at Crystal Springs Capital, David spent six years as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, where he advised Fortune 500 companies on operational effectiveness and strategy in both the US and Europe. David's experience also includes serving as a senior manager for HJ Heinz, where he commissioned and led their first green-field factory in Russia.
David has an MBA from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business where he was an Arjay Miller scholar, and an MA from Stanford University in International Policy Studies. He also has undergraduate and graduate degrees in business from University College Dublin in Ireland, both received with first class honors.
David also serves on the board of 1Life Healthcare.

David Kennedy and Kevin Frick founded Serent Capital with the goal of building an institution that would be recognized as the premier source of capital and expertise for high growth services businesses.
Mr. Kennedy most recently was the President of ServiceSource, where he remains as Chairman, and where he and his partner led the company through a 20X increase in revenue and enterprise value. Mr. Kennedy also sits on the boards of several high growth companies, where he has been a personal investor.
"Having led a successful services company, I have experienced both the thrills and the challenges of driving growth. Helping CEOs navigate those same challenges has been rewarding for me as a personal investor and board member, and I am looking forward to partnering with Serent's portfolio company CEOs to help build great businesses," said Mr. Kennedy.
