Seasoned executive will focus on Financial Officers

NEW YORK — Elizabeth “Liz” Ewing, one of the search industry’s premier consultants identifying and recruiting financial officers, has joined Diversified Search as Managing Director, effective September 29th. Ewing, who will serve in the firm’s Financial Officers, CEO, and Board of Directors practices, will be based out of Diversified’s New York office in the historic Chrysler Building on 42nd Street.


“Liz Ewing has everything you look for in a search executive: intelligence, strategic thinking, and the ability to know what both clients and candidates want before they do,” said Diversified Search CEO Dale E. Jones. “With three decades of work in the finance sector, she brings deep and broad experience to Diversified Search. We are delighted to welcome her to the firm and into our fast-growing Financial Officers practice.”


For the past 15-plus years Ewing has served as a Partner at Heidrick & Struggles, where she was a member of the firm’s Healthcare & Life Sciences, Financial Officers, CEO and Board, Legal Risk & Compliance, and Private Equity practices. Her diverse client base has included public and private companies ranging from Fortune 500 to small cap as well as private equity firms.


Her broad experience in the world of finance began with her role as a Vice President in the Corporate Finance & Banking Group of Chemical Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), where she served for 11 years before joining Societe General in Chicago as Vice President and Team Leader. She then spent more than five years with Ondeo Nalco, a $2.6 billion global chemical company, eventually reaching the role of Treasurer. In 2004, she brought her expertise in finance to the executive search industry.


“I’m thrilled be joining Diversified Search’s broad and developing platform,” Ewing said, “and look forward the contributing to the firm’s future growth and success.”


Founded by Judith M. von Seldeneck in 1974, Diversified Search is the largest woman-founded executive search firm in the world and the official U.S. partner of AltoPartners, the international alliance of executive search firms with 58 offices in 34 countries worldwide across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.

The Diversified Search Group is currently comprised of Diversified Search and its combined firms of BioQuest, Koya Leadership Partners, Grant Cooper, and Storbeck Search & Associates.
