Diversified Search Group

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Diversified Search Group, a trailblazer in the executive search industry and one of the largest firms founded by a woman, celebrates its 50th anniversary. The firm has announced a series of nationwide events and a commemorative book co-authored by its founder, Judith “Judee” M. von Seldeneck, and CEO, Aileen K. Alexander, to mark this significant milestone.

Since its inception in 1974, Diversified Search has been at the forefront of promoting equal opportunities for women in professional and executive roles. Over the years, the company has seen substantial growth, expanding its team to 350 employees and boosting its annual revenue to $150 million. This expansion includes strategic acquisitions of seven leading executive search and management consulting firms since 2016, significantly enhancing its service offerings and market reach.

A key factor in the firm’s growth has been its innovative partnership with a private equity firm, a move that set a new standard within the executive search industry. With its headquarters in Philadelphia and 14 offices across the United States, as well as a global presence through an international alliance covering 64 offices in 37 countries, Diversified Search Group has solidified its position as a global leader in executive search.

Christopher W. Hunt, President and Co-Founder of Hunt Scanlon Media, highlighted the firm’s exceptional growth over the past five years, attributing it to a strategic focus on developing key practice disciplines and making high-impact acquisitions.

Diversified Search Group is distinguished not only by its size and scope but also by its leadership, being the only Top 10 executive search firm led by a female CEO. This leadership reflects the company’s founding mission to enhance diversity and inclusion within the professional sphere.
