Cultivating new leadership for a changing world.

Diversified Search was founded in 1974 by a pioneering woman with a pioneering purpose: to revolutionize the job search and hiring for process for women. Over the years, as the firm grew, its mission did, too. While still forging a path as a leader in the area of diversity and inclusion, the firm dedicated itself to attracting and retaining inspiring, transformational leaders of every background who would bring steady direction, bold thinking, and fresh ideas to its clients and their organizations.

The firm established The Diversified Search Group to both build upon its expertise in its key practice areas and deepen its understanding of the industry-specific talent challenges facing organizations today. Today, the Diversified Search Group is comprised of Diversified Search and its combined firms of BioQuest, Koya Leadership Partners, Grant Cooper, and Storbeck Search & Associates.

This combination of firms, a new model in the executive search industry, has created stronger synergies in our largest practice areas, including Education and Nonprofit, Healthcare Services, and Life Sciences. It is these synergies that provide our teams with deeper industry and functional focus, stronger research teams, and highly diverse and expansive candidate networks. Simply put, The Diversified Search Group offers the best search experience in the industry for clients and candidates. In 2020, Forbes named The Diversified Search Group one of the top five executive search firms in the nation.

United by our shared values of respect, impact, integrity, commitment, and diversity and belonging, we remain dedicated to recruiting and placing dynamic leaders who build culture, foster innovation, and deliver both social impact and financial performance.

Together, we believe that the right leader in the right place can transform people, organizations, and the world.
