Mergers and Partnerships Continue In the Search Industry
There have been a number of mergers among executive search firms since the start of the year. Some provide national expansion opportunities, others more global reach, while still others allow for additional solutions offerings for clients requesting a full suite of talent management services.
Just last month, two specialists, The Buffkin Group and long-time higher education specialist Baker and Associates, joined forces. Now known as Buffkin/Baker, the newly-merged creation boasts offices in Nashville, its headquarters, as well as Chicago, New York, Winston-Salem, Charleston and Washington, D.C. Aside from giving it more bulk geographically, the combination has given the resulting business broadened synergies to search for leaders across a number of disciplines, including healthcare, technology, private club, digital media, digital marketing, financial services, academia and non-profit.
In February, La Fosse formed an alliance with Intelligent Partners, a provider of research and education on alternative investments. Through the partnership, La Fosse will serve as a ‘talent partner’ to the firm. It turned to the search firm, it said, because of its expertise in the technology and digital sectors.
SRiCheyenne was recently launched following the January merger of U.S.-based media and content recruitment provider, Cheyenne Group, and UK-headquartered SRi (formerly Sports Recruitment International).
Also in January, executive search firms Thomas Thor Associates, B.V. and KeySource HCI, LLC merged their nuclear industry business interests in the Americas and formed a new company called KeySource Thomas Thor, which focuses on providing executive search services to the entire life-cycle of nuclear providers in North and South America and will be headquartered in Hudson, OH. The combined firm will also have access to the global network of Thomas Thor Associates with operations in Europe and the Middle East.
