Keith Mann was born and raised in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. His primary caregiver growing up was his father. He credits his mother as “doing every thing else” when it comes to his upbringing. He had his first experience and contact with animal rights activists in 1982. Local hunt saboteurs were handed him a leaflet, and he was immediately intrigued with the idea of saving animals. The account that Mann has of helping an animal in captivity was taking a rabbit from a cage that he walked by daily. He had continuously asked the owner of the rabbit to better its living conditions, but the owner did nothing to improve the rabbit’s conditions.
Today, Keith Mann is a well-known British animal rights campaigner and writer. In 2005 the police alleged that Mann was at the top of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) movement. In 2007 he wrote the book,”From Dusk ’til Dawn.” The book describes stories of the growth of the Animal Liberation Movement and it is the only book of its kind. There is now a website: From Dusk ’til Dawn; designed to promote the book and the bigger picture of the Animal Liberation project. The website is constantly evolving with the needs of the animals and the world today, in order to try to stay one step ahead. Mann has been part of the executive search industry for over fifteen years. He is an expert in hedge fund compensation, staffing and hiring strategy.
