Guerrero Search Launched

October 5, 2022 – Guerrero, a minority-owned, privately held, executive advancement company at the intersection of media, professional networks, and talent acquisition, has launched Guerrero Search, a retained executive recruitment service focused on helping companies diversify their leadership ranks.

“The demand for diversity at all levels of corporate America has never been greater, yet the needle hasn’t moved much, and companies across all industries still complain about not being able to find qualified diverse talent,” the company said. “Guerrero, which has been connecting with mid- to senior-level leaders in the Fortune 1000 since 2006 through its media, is here to change that with the launch of Guerrero Search.”

“Guerrero was launched 16 years ago with the mission of highlighting diverse leadership across the U.S.,” said Pedro A. Guerrero, managing partner of Guerrero Search and founder and CEO of Guerrero. “We were telling the stories of diverse executives long before diversity became a buzzword that quickly evolved into a must for organizations.”

“Through our various brands and professional communities, we’ve built a tremendous network of engaged executives who share our desire for a more equitable workplace,” Mr. Guerrero said. “We’re a fresh start for talent leaders who are looking for search partners with diverse networks. We’re here to help companies who are serious about recruiting and retaining diverse talent and have been underserved by firms whose networks do not reflect the changing landscape in this country. Not only can Guerrero Search help identify that diverse talent, but through our data-driven research we can also help companies address their diversity recruiting pain points and gain a better understanding of what it truly means to be an inclusive organization.”

Guerrero Search now offers retained search services to aid in diversifying senior and board-level leadership ranks. It also offers content and branding services to help organizations attract diverse leadership as well as custom research solutions to help organizations better understand the unique challenges and opportunities around recruiting and retaining diverse talent


Guerrero specializes in the Latino professional marketplace and corporate DEI initiatives.  Its media portfolio includes noteworthy brands such as Hispanic Executive and Profile, magazines that have received numerous industry awards from Folio, ACES: The Society for Editing, and the Society of Publication Designers. As a part of his efforts to forward the importance of diverse leadership, Mr. Guerrero has put a special emphasis on advancing and elevating Latino professionals. In 2015, he cofounded The Alumni Society, a first-of-its-kind network composed of over 5,000 distinguished Latinos who graduated from the country’s top universities.

Newly Launched

Since the start of 2021 a handful of new search firms have been launched. Here’s a look at a recent sampling from the Hunt Scanlon Media archives:

Global advisory firm Secura/Isaac Group has launched Secura/Isaac Talent, an executive search firm dedicated to recruiting senior-level talent for financial services clients. The firm will be led by CEO Jamie Peretz, who brings over two decades of top-level executive search experience. “Secura/Isaac Group’s team of highly experienced financial executives and former regulators operate at the juncture of strategy and regulatory compliance to help clients navigate today’s rapidly evolving corporate and regulatory environments,” said the company. “Secura/Isaac Talent is perfectly positioned to connect clients to highly experienced, top-quality leaders who meet the demands of today’s environment.”

Massey Henry has opened its doors in Toronto as an executive search and board advisory firm specializing in financial services and the public sector. Founder and managing partner Michael Henry, a seasoned executive search professional, aims to set a new standard for executive recruiting with a streamlined, collaborative approach that enables organizations to recruit diverse top talent for urgent, transformational roles. “In today’s pandemic-driven landscape, we are seeing increased pressures with regard to risk management, regulatory compliance, digitization, and diversity and ESG, at both the board and C-suite levels,” said Mr. Henry, a specialist in the recruitment of senior-level executives and corporate directors in financial services.

Mike Sarraille and George Randle have launched Talent War Group, an executive search and leadership consulting firm that will combine top talent processes and insights with executive placement, talent advisory and leadership development services. The authors of “The Talent War: How Special Operations and Great Organizations Win on Talent,” the firm’s founders said the new firm “offers today’s businesses and organizations an advanced, competitive approach in the battle for hiring, developing and engaging high-performing, A-player leaders.”

Mark Oppenheimer, former CEO Americas for Marlin Hawk in New York, has launched Modern Executive Solutions in Atlanta. He co-founded the new search outfit with his wife, Michelle Domanico, who serves as chief financial officer. Modern’s purpose, according to Mr. Oppenheimer – who serves as chief executive – is to improve “diverse representation within leadership teams.” The firm has spent months collecting, tracking, and analyzing feedback from hundreds of C-level executives before launching recently. Modern bills itself as “an innovative executive search and integrated advisory solutions firm,” underpinned with market intelligence and assessment capabilities – strong points of Mr. Oppenheimer’s while serving in various leadership capacities at Marlin Hawk over a 12-year career with the London-based recruitment provider.

Debra L. Lee, the former CEO of BET Networks, and Rabia de Lande Long, an executive coach and management consultant for top companies, have launched a bi-coastal consulting firm, the Monarchs Collective, centered on elevating black executives and women. “The Monarchs Collective answers the calls for – and clear business value of – diverse leadership, and partners with organizations and executives to make it easier to discover, develop and promote exceptional black and women executives for boards and leadership roles,” said the firm’s new leaders in a statement. “Frustrated by a perceived lack of qualified candidates who bring diversity but inspired by the great number of extraordinary talent in their networks, the co-founders launched the Monarchs Collective to break old systems and networks. They seek to accelerate efforts to expand leadership pipelines and create measurable and sustainable systems for engaging and retaining diverse talent.”
