Who is XQ?

We provide companies with a variety of ways to understand human factors and put them into practice.  XQ is a combination of IQ (intelligence quotient), EQ (emotional quotient), and personality traits.  When you triangulate these 3 things together, you can create amazing synergy at work.  It’s all about understanding the human mind, and making sure strategies have your people in mind.

XQ Executive Team

PRESIDENT & CEO

Joe Keshmiri

Joe was a high-level executive for a fortune 500 company right at the moment when the corporate world began to change. Right around the inception of the internet and the digital revolution, he noticed that more and more corporate resources went towards hardware and software technology, and away from the people. People began to feel dehumanized, and it all became about 0’s and 1’s. In fact, he noticed that people were being treated more like machines.

PARTNER

Cyrus Kennedy

Cyrus Kennedy set out more than a decade ago to change an emerging workplace perception that Millennials did not work hard, could not communicate well or be team players, let alone leaders. By his mid-twenties he had founded Quest Preservation, a nationwide property management business during one of the worst financial crises in American history. Starting with the maintenance of 40 homes in 2009, he grew the business to over 60,000 homes by 2012 – during his tenure he was responsible for the management of over 500,000 properties.
