About Us

Bridge Partners is an executive search firm with unique expertise in attracting and retaining senior, diverse executives.

Their clients include major corporations, non-profits, public sector, and entrepreneurial organizations across the US and around the world. What they have in common is a desire to adapt to a changing global market and diversify their leadership teams in order to reflect their employee base, as well as the constituents they serve.

Bridge Partners was founded in 2003 by partners who previously worked together at a major international search firm, where they ran the Diversity & Inclusion practice.

Diversity-inclusion-equity is not an “initiative” for them. It is what they do. Their team reflects a commitment to driving diversity in all its forms, embedding this core value in every aspect of our culture and practice.

As a minority-owned firm, they have grown their business based on the knowledge that a diverse leadership team is critical to their clients – not just to reflect employee base, clients and constituents served, but also to encourage innovation and progressive decision-making.

They have a proven track record of building effective leadership teams by:

  • Providing a higher level of service, embedding diversity and inclusion into every aspect of their client work
  • Raising the degree of expectation regarding inclusion in their candidate slates
  • Partnering with clients to ensure they gain access to the very best executives in the marketplace, remaining focused on ability as the top priority, regardless of race, gender, or any other defining characteristics
