Diversity & Inclusion

The only constant in life is change. As our world continuously evolves, organizations increasingly need diverse talent to successfully navigate new complexities, disruptions, and challenges. Thus with a new economic environment challenging most businesses, we are committed now more than ever to hiring diverse executive teams.

Diverse teams broaden perspectives and drive innovation. Further, companies that are committed to hiring diverse talent outpace the competition, gain more market share, and achieve better business performance. For employees, a diverse work environment drives higher engagement, morale, loyalty, and retention.



Executive Search Diversity & Inclusion at Morgan Samuels

We actively seek clients who share a deep commitment to diversity. These dimensions include gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age/generation, education, religious/spiritual beliefs, and veteran status. We are dedicated to talking with candidates from diverse backgrounds and experiences on every single engagement.

With candidates, we leverage our strategic framework and rigorous assessments to uncover diverse talent in the marketplace and eliminate bias throughout the review process. This methodology serves to hold both ourselves and our clients accountable.


Our highly interactive and consultative approach enables us to assess the best candidates in terms of leadership capability, technical expertise, motivation, diversity, and value alignment.

After identifying the best fit talent, we provide coaching through our New Leader Integration program to help the new hire successfully integrate into the company and culture of their new role.


With a 43% diverse placement rate, we lead the executive search industry. And in a true commitment to diversity at Morgan Samuels, our own team is 54% diverse. Further, our CEO Bert Hensley is a West Point graduate and Army veteran, and we have placed multiple veterans over the years, including at companies in the Fortune 50.

We have only been able to achieve unprecedented diversity placement rates by implementing and committing to best practices that prioritize discovering diverse leaders. Because of our passion and understanding of the challenges and opportunities surrounding inclusion, we take shared responsibility to empower underrepresented talent.
