Firm News

The Partners of ShoreView are excited to announce that Diversified Search, a ShoreView portfolio company, has been named one of the top five executive search firms in the U.S. by Forbes Magazine.

Forbes partnered with Statista to survey recruiters, job candidates, and HR managers and to collect nominations of their top partners in search.  The results were used to determine the best 200 executive search firms specializing in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000.  This is the fourth year that Diversified Search has made the annual list and the highest ranking the company has seen.

ShoreView invested in Diversified Search in February of 2019 and Diversified Search has since completed three add-on acquisitions.  The three acquisitions have added scale to the platform while broadening strategic end markets and adding depth to the management team.

Based in Philadelphia, PA, Diversified Search specializes in recruiting senior-level executives and board directors primarily within the healthcare, life sciences, higher education, and non-profit industries. The Company is a recognized leader in gender and cultural diversity recruiting, serving a wide variety of corporations, universities and non-profit organizations.  To learn more about Diversified Search, visit its website at
