Diversified Search, one of the top ten executive search firms in the U.S., 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.

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.”
