November 9, 2009 – This month Diversified Search Odgers Berndtson celebrates 35 years in the executive search business. The firm was founded in Philadelphia by Judith M. von Seldeneck in 1974 specializing in the recruitment of women. Still headquartered in Philadelphia, the firm also has U.S. offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Washington, D.C. Diversified offers global search capabilities in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa & Middle East, and Asia through its partnership with Odgers Berndtson. “We have always believed that the key to success in the executive search industry is to maintain strong client relationships and add value,” said Ms. von Seldeneck. “This is a philosophy that has stood us well as we have grown and prospered during our 35 years in business.” As part of its 35th anniversary celebration, Diversified has created a Future Leaders Scholarship for a Philadelphia area student who has demonstrated positive leadership qualities.
