The Bowdoin Group Recognized in Hunt Scanlon’s Inaugural ‘HR/Diversity Power 65’ Recruiter Ranking

The Bowdoin Group, an executive search firm with deep expertise in leadership search and team expansions for growth-stage companies, is pleased to announce that the firm has been named to Hunt Scanlon’s first annual “HR/Diversity Recruiting Power 65” ranking.

The industry leader in executive search sector research and news, Hunt Scanlon Media issues their top executive search and recruiter rankings for numerous categories each year. This is their first annual roundup of the 65 most prominent executive search firms specializing in Human Resources and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for the work we’re doing to advance underrepresented talent in the industries we serve. While we are truly proud of this honor, there is still a tremendous amount of progress to be made to support diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts,” noted Dave Melville, CEO, and Founder of The Bowdoin Group. “We’re buoyed by the progress we’ve seen within DEI in the executive search industry. For many leading organizations, it is no longer a nice-to-have; it is imperative to their success.”

Last year, The Bowdoin Group partnered with Quantum Power Skills (QPS), a management consulting firm specializing in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to both evaluate the firm’s DEI practices and internal goals, as well as help clients, build more diverse teams. Together with QPS, The Bowdoin Group is partnering with its clients to understand business goals, DEI strategies, and provide hiring strategies with diversity top-of-mind.

In 2019 and 2020, approximately two-thirds of candidates placed by Bowdoin are diverse in gender or ethnicity.

Over the last few years, Hunt Scanlon has also recognized The Bowdoin Group in several other lists, including the Top 50 Healthcare & Life Sciences Search Firms and their Cyber Technology Top 40 list, highlighting leading search firms in the technology and cybersecurity spaces.
