Karen Moore, Managing Partner of Avery Partners, believes that ExecQuest’s expertise in Healthcare and Energy executive search will greatly contribute toward expanding their product offerings.

Marion Spears Karr, Former CEO of ExecQuest stated, “I see the merger with Avery Partners as an exceptional opportunity to not only continue to provide superior leadership acquisition solutions to the clients of ExecQuest Consulting but also brings a broad range of other services Avery provides to those clients that will greatly enhance their long term growth and sustainability. This combination of strong talent acquisition experience, consulting services, and outsourcing from Avery Partners is powerful to its clients and the organizations it serves.”

This merger represents a pooling of the expertise of an executive search and a consulting firm, in an effort to expand their Healthcare and Energy Divisions. Avery Partners specializes in the IT and Healthcare sector; however they have made enormous growth into healthcare and energy with the acquisition of ExecQuest.
