David Fawkner founded The Kintock Group in 1983 which began as a public/private partnership created to develop employment opportunities for offenders. From its modest beginnings as a fledgling organization serving 100 clients, Kintock has grown to become a leading community corrections provider serving approximately 1,500 individuals each day. When asked to discuss those factors contributing to the growth of the company, Mr. Fawkner shared this comment; “I strongly believe that we can help to break the cycle of crime by providing education, employment training, and meaningful employment.”
Mr. Fawkner began his lifelong career in the criminal justice field as a senior United States Probation and Parole Officer. While employed by the U.S. courts he was loaned to the National Alliance of Business and was subsequently appointed National Director of Criminal Justice Programs. In that role he was responsible for developing specialized employment programs between the U.S. Courts, Federal Probation and the National Alliance of Business.
David holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in the Administration of Criminal Justice from San Jose State University. He has served as an adjunct professor at Temple University teaching criminal justice. Mr. Fawkner was awarded an honorary degree from Wilmington College, Ohio and a Commendation by President Jimmy Carter for his innovative programs in community corrections.
