Global Reach

Diversified Search is the exclusive US partner of AltoPartners, the international alliance of independent executive search firms. 

A Distinctive Global Alliance

AltoPartners is an international alliance of independent executive search firms. Established in 2006 by a group of entrepreneurial companies, the alliance now spans 30 countries across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

AltoPartners is our collective brand – each firm retains and operates under their local brand, so that clients and candidates alike benefit from the reputation and profile of the indigenous brand in their own market. Each member firm in the AltoPartners alliance offers expert local knowledge in their domestic market and, through AltoPartners, has the ability to support the international development of clients’ businesses and provide access to candidates throughout the world. Our multi-domestic “local need, global reach” approach provides clients with access to high quality leadership in all of the major economies.

Our alliance provides clients with the highest standards of operational excellence, delivered by senior level teams of Consultants in each country. Consultants offer specialist experience of their respective sectors and local markets, backed up with the support of our global alliance and international research capabilities. 

Flexibility, creativity and adaptability are key to our approach to meeting clients’ needs.

AltoPartners offers services in two core areas:

  • Executive Search
  • Leadership Services including assessment, succession planning, HR due diligence and compensation surveys.


Whatever the Assignment, We Will See It Through

Each firm in the AltoPartners alliance is owned and operated by its Partners, who are focused on doing what they do best – serving their clients – rather than being distracted by big company politics. Every client and every assignment is important to us and receives our full attention until the assignment is completed.

AltoPartners combines the skills and knowledge of well-regarded, accomplished search professionals around the world – many of whom have direct executive experience in the industries they serve - to provide clients with access to diverse, creative short lists – whatever the assignment.

We ensure that every search is led by a Partner/Consultant who, unlike in many firms, will be totally involved at every stage of the search. We deliver the same high levels of professionalism and client service on every search, wherever it is carried out.
