Our Team’s Mission

We are committed to delivering outstanding executive search & advisory services across the entire spectrum of financial services and technology. We have a 30 year track record of supporting our client’s needs in an increasingly complex talent landscape.

Since 1990 our team has represented hundreds of companies with the singular purpose of recruiting talent that provides our client’s business with a sustainable competitive advantage.

We combine the advantages of a boutique firm with a global track record and several decades of industry expertise. That industry knowledge combined with our commitment to delivering the best possible talent to our client on each search has been and remains the cornerstone of our success. Reach and experience all in one place.

Alternative Investments, Hedge Funds & P.E.

Since 1990, we have helped our clients navigate the complex staffing needs of the Alts universe. Alts pioneer O’Connor Associates was our first client in the space. We leveraged that experience to expand into working with clients across the full array of hedge fund strategies. Reach & experience is critical to attracting industry best talent. We have both.

Our PE clients have relied on our experience recruiting executives across the following industries: Manufacturing, Financial Services, Healthcare, Energy, Technology, Business Services & Consumer Products. Our experience in these industries includes both PE owned & publicly traded companies.

Banking, Wealth & Asset Management, Fin-Tech

Banks, Private banks, Wealth & Asset Managers have turned to us for 3 decades to navigate the talent market to ensure they maintain a competitive advantage and deliver best in class performance to their clients.

Today, the banking, asset management, and wealth management industry faces greater challenges than ever before. Fee compression, technology for the self-directed investor and increasing regulatory oversight have created a competitive environment where only the best will succeed.

To be the best you have to find and hire the best. We have a 30-year track record of recruiting the absolute best talent in the industry for clients in commercial banking, private banking, investment banking, capital markets, wealth managers, and institutional asset managers.

Cybersecurity, Cloud Technology & Professional Consulting

We have compiled a strong track record in the cybersecurity and cloud based solutions space over the past 10 years. Working closely with CEO’s, Boards Funtional Heads & HR executives we have recruited C -suite executives, functional heads and technical talent.

We have also built deep relationships with government and private sector CISO’s to help them attract talent which enhances their capability to deliver cybersecurity coverage for their business or agency.

Competition  for talent in the tech space is fierce. You need to differentiate your firm/technology/culture/ offering. Doing so requires a search firm that has deep experience in the space and understands the technology. We have both,  and have utilized them to  help our tech clients traverse the market challenge for talent since 1990.
