London-based executive search firm, Hedley May, and New York-based Exchange Place Partners (“Exchange Place”) are proud to announce a merger, creating a global executive search firm to be known as “Hedley May.” 

The merger will allow the new Hedley May to seamlessly execute the most senior functional and leadership searches for leading multi-national corporates, financial institutions, professional services and regulatory clients across the globe. 

“We have collaborated closely with Exchange Place for many years,” says Partner Nick Hedley. “It is very exciting to cement a long-trusted relationship that has already resulted in the completion of a series of highly successful international searches.” 

Partner Anthony May adds, “Clients are looking for high quality advice outside the ‘old style’ generalist search firm structure. As an international boutique search firm, we can now deliver the same high-touch service our clients have come to expect but on a truly global basis.” 

Beyond the global footprint, Hedley May remains committed as ever to inclusion and diversity. “We are proud of bringing inclusion and diversity to the highest levels of our clients’ organizations. Our impressive track record in the US includes a diversity placement rate of over 55% since inception,” says Partner Laura McPhail.
