Diversified Search / AltoPartners USA Acquires BioQuest
Diversified Search, one of the top ten executive search firms in the U.S. and the exclusive USA partner of AltoPartners, has announced its acquisition of BioQuest, a leader in retained executive search for healthcare innovators in the life sciences market, headquartered in San Francisco. Under the terms of the agreement, BioQuest will operate as an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary within the Diversified Search family of companies.
“BioQuest, with its ongoing success recruiting leaders for life sciences companies in the venture capital and private equity markets, is a marquee addition to our healthcare portfolio,” said Diversified CEO and President Dale E. Jones. “With BioQuest as part of the family, Diversified cements its leadership position in executive search, particularly in medical device, biopharma, diagnostics, digital health, health IT, and consumer medicine.”
“BioQuest’s nimble, innovative, and creative approach to leadership recruiting are a perfect cultural fit for us,” noted Diversified Chairman and Founder Judith M. von Seldeneck. “We are thrilled to have found exactly the right partner to grow our network in the thriving California life sciences market.”
BioQuest, led by Co-Founder and Managing Partner Roger Anderson, is known for its expertise in recruiting boards of directors, CEOs and C-suite executives, along with key functional vice presidents. With more than 30 years in the industry, BioQuest has built leadership teams for innovative companies in medicine, science, and technology.
“This is great news for our clients,” said Anderson. “Our clients will see no change in the high level, high-touch service they have come to expect from us. At the same time, they will benefit from the broader reach we gain from joining the Diversified family.”
