Executive Search Firms Join Forces in Transatlantic Partnership

27 June 2024, London/Toronto: Executive search and interim management consultancies Anderson Quigley and Griffith Group Executive Search have partnered to expand their recruitment services to both sides of the Atlantic.

The partnership between the British and Canadian headquartered firms will further enable their global recruitment of diverse and exceptional leadership. Both will find talent for academic institutions, charities, global foundations, public sectors, and private corporations across the UK, USA and Canada.

The expansion also marks a significant milestone in both firms’ growth.

The collaboration delivers on commitments to serve global clients with local expertise, alongside shared values around equality, diversity, inclusion, as well as providing a high level of client and candidate care.

The teams are international and multilingual, bringing a political, cultural and practical understanding of working in other countries.

Ed Pritchard, founder and Managing Partner of Anderson Quigley, said: “At Anderson Quigley we’re growing quickly to meet the level of support demanded by our clients and candidates. By partnering with Jane and Griffith Group, that support now includes North America.

“We’re going to learn and support each other a lot – from how the different geography and recruitment landscapes operate to how diversity impacts searches in different ways. Griffith Group is known for its support of equity deserving people.

“By joining our skills, people and capacity to support placements we can offer our clients geographical reach and international knowledge.”

Jane Griffith, Managing Partner and Founder, Griffith Group Executive Search, said: “We are delighted to have found a like-minded partner in the team at Anderson Quigley. Both firms share a commitment to a thorough, equitable, and partner led search process.

“With Griffith Group’s continued expansion in Canada, having recently opened an office on the west coast in British Columbia, we look forward to this partnership and connection to the UK. Both Griffith Group and Anderson Quigley identify exceptional global talent for our clients, and our partnership will help ensure that reach is broad and deep.”
