We’re very proud of Adam Harwood, a Senior Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Financial Services division, for making Business Insider’s list of Rising Stars of Wall Street Headhunting! Adam joined the firm in 2014 and today oversees our Front Office search practice.
Here is an excerpt from the Business Insider article:
Adam Harwood fell into recruiting by accident. While working in college admissions at Pace University, his first gig after graduating in 2007 from the school, he got a call back for a job posting about recruiting for banks.
Intrigued, he pursued the job and wound up at Carrington Fox in 2010, where he started his headhunting career scouting mid- to senior-level talent for sell-side firms and hedge funds.
In 2014, he split for The Execu|Search Group to build out a front-office Wall Street recruiting operation at the firm. Harwood, a senior managing director, now runs the front office group within the firm’s financial services practice, managing a team of five while continuing to place traders, portfolio managers, quants, and sales professionals at big banks and top-tier hedge funds.
