Trevor Blair

    A native of San Diego, CA, Trevor has nearly 20 years of experience in executive search, recruiting and workforce development. He began his career with Manpower, a global provider of recruiting and HR solutions, and was initially based in Sydney. After 5 years with the Australian operation, he transferred back to the US for graduate school, and then rejoined Manpower in San Diego. After serving for several years as a Business Development Manager, he shifted focus to build the company’s workforce development and executive search practices. During this time, Trevor worked closely with nonprofit organizations to develop training and job placement programs for underserved communities, including youth and veterans. He also helped secure government and private funding to back those programs. On the executive search front, Trevor built a significant practice at Manpower serving a range of clients in the public, nonprofit and private sectors. In 2016, he leveraged this experience to launch a new firm, Blair Search Partners, specializing in search engagements for nonprofit and public-sector clients. Trevor’s community engagement is centered on education and employment issues. Current board and committee positions include LEAD San Diego, Zero8hundred (formerly the Military Transition Support Project), the Barrio Logan College Institute, San Diego Rotary, San Diego Grantmakers, and Mission Driven Finance. Trevor is an avid endurance athlete, having competed in over 200 triathlons around the world. He is a 10-time Ironman finisher and 3-time Boston Marathon finisher. He holds a BA from the University of Pennsylvania (summa cum laude), and an MBA from the University of Southern California. Trevor and his wife Megan live in Downtown San Diego with their daughter Eleanor (2) and Julian (4 months).
