Executive Search


Securing the right experienced talent is critical. Our mission is to help banks and FinTech firms make these key decisions with great candidate choices. We partner with our clients to establish a search scope and then turn to our database, network, and research to build a comprehensive pipeline and diverse slate of candidates based on the criteria of selection. Following our Assurance Search Process, we aim to manage expectations, align interests, and assess cultural fit.

Board of Directors Search


We continue to be hired by successful financial institutions and FinTech firms to identify and attract high caliber additions to their Board of Directors. With a strong understanding of our clients’ business, strategy, and challenges, we are trusted to engage well regarded executives with backgrounds we know best. Our deep understanding of the evolving regulatory landscape and relationships with current and former industry leaders positions us to be a tremendous resource for our clients and these talented leaders.

Talent Pipelining & Succession Planning


We are hired by clients to build talent pipelines for them to engage as potential future leaders at the company. We start conversations with leaders and rising talent in the industry and convey our client’s story and brand to attract engagement. This pool of warm talent is compelling for purposes of identifying successors, benchmarking existing talent, and reducing search-time for the next key hire. By gaining familiarity with potential candidates over extended time periods, our client’s leadership teams and regulators are more confident about future leaders, especially when in the face of current or anticipated economic, regulatory or leadership challenges.

Our Specialties


Compliance & Financial Crime

Regulatory Compliance and Financial Crime Compliance (BSA/AML, Fraud, Sanctions, Anti-Corruption) are a core foundation to our network and client success list. We keep ongoing discussions with industry leaders as well as those with the tangential skill set.

Risk Management

The second line risk function within financial services has developed multiple segments beyond its measurement and quantitative pillars, including Non-Financial Risk, Operational and Enterprise Risk, Stress Testing, and various technology and automation initiatives. The importance of the first line of defense owning the risk has further enhanced every institution's perspective of controls.

Regulatory Affairs

The manner in which financial services organizations interact with their local, regional or global regulatory authorities are far from consistent. We are keenly aware of the talent in both the public and private marketplace and the attributes needed to be successful.

Privacy & Data Protection

The role of the Chief Privacy Officer within financial services has evolved as a result of a complex regulatory landscape. We continuously track Privacy and Data talent, for which demand has significantly increased in the last several years.
