What people are saying

I had a great experience working with Jamesbeck. After over a decade plus with my previous firm, they helped me navigate a complex transition, understanding what my long term goals and skills are, and ultimately helping me make a rewarding change. It was a true partnership!

Positions: SVP, Institutional Sales

I wanted to reach out and let you know that I have had an excellent experience working with Jamesbeck. I’ve worked with many recruiters over the years (mostly as the one doing the hiring!) but wanted to make sure you knew how exceptional it has been working with you. I am hopeful that this particular search will end on a positive note, but either way, working with Jamesbeck has been a pleasure and wanted to let you know.

Position: Principal, Secondaries

I’ve not been involved in many processes, but I can’t imagine that many other recruiters send out search conclusion updates like Jamesbeck does to close the loop. It is fantastic that Jamesbeck does that and a testament to the firm’s approach and differentiators.

Position: MD, Institutional Sales, Infrastructure

Thank you for running a great IR search. You surfaced many qualified candidates and were a great thought partner for the duration of what proved to be a painfully long exercise, all due to indecision and soul searching on our end. I appreciate your patience with us and am delighted with the outcome.

Position: Head of Investor Relations

Few other recruiting firms care genuinely about the individual they’re interviewing.  When my friend first connected me with one of the founders, she said “with Jamesbeck, you will always be taken care of”.

Position: Co-CIO for an allocator

I have known one of the founders for about 10 years. She is, in my opinion, one of the highest quality and integrity based people in the “recruiting” placement profession. She has always been forthcoming, direct, and sought after by top firms looking for real talent.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jamesbeck. We were in search of a COO for our distribution team, and Jamesbeck’s expertise in this arena shone brightly from the outset. They showcased a profound understanding of the industry landscape and, with remarkable efficiency, curated an impressive list of candidates that matched our unique requirements. Their guidance in assessing the candidates was invaluable, ensuring we found the perfect fit for our team. Beyond their evident proficiency, what truly stood out was their polished professionalism paired with an enjoyable collaboration experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Jamesbeck and will certainly entrust them with our future executive search needs.

Position: COO, Distribution

As a candidate, working with Jamesbeck is a world-class experience. They are tremendous at aligning the needs of the candidate with the needs of their client. This is complemented by a deep understanding of the investments industry, which leads to an efficient process all around. Finally, they do it all with transparency and integrity – so you know when you’re working with Jamesbeck, it’s genuine.

Position: Head of North American Institutional Sales

If you’ve made the decision to retain a search partner for a key hire, look no further than the team at Jamesbeck. You will be met with a full team of thoughtful, kind, and caring individuals who want to find the best candidates that not only fit your role but will thrive in your culture as well. We had many conversations with the Jamesbeck team about the types of people who will work well for us, and they delivered. Another dimension of the Jamesbeck team that really sets them apart is the vetting of candidates. Their ability to dig deep on each candidate and paint a complete picture of their abilities, weaknesses, goals, and character is worth every bit of the resources – both time and capital – that you will be dedicating to your search. I look forward to working with them again!

It has been so wonderful working with Jamesbeck throughout this process. I am so excited about my new role and looking forward to hitting the ground running. What a career opportunity. I am so appreciative of all that you have done to support my transition!

Successful Candidate
Position: MD, Infrastructure Equity Fundraising & IR

The team at Jamesbeck attacked our search as if we were a large, repeat client, not a boutique working with a full-service firm for the first time. With their help, we got a result we never could have achieved on our own.

Client: Boutique Growth Equity Manager
Position: Senior Relationship Manager

Thank you to the all-star team at Jamesbeck! I have loved working with you both.  Such easy communication, great candidate insights and a guiding hand where needed. It’s been quite the journey but a great outcome. Truly appreciate your partnership and value the fact that when you two are on the case I can step away and focus elsewhere in the safe knowledge you’ll knock it out the park.

Client: Diversified Private Equity Fund of Funds
Position: Head of RE Secondaries

I have interacted with numerous search professionals throughout my career and if I ever have to hire somebody, I would hire you in a second – you are far and away heads and tails above everyone else from a process and urgency standpoint.

Client: Diversified Manager
Position: Senior Private Credit Fundraiser

Simply breath taking. Have to tell you both, from start to finish…on the ETF search…it was probably the best executed and positive search of any executive role I have endeavored and concluded….in any industry….and I have probably procured over $20MM to $25MM of search in my career. You guys just simply came to the table and nailed it every step of the way. Congratulations.

I loved working with Jamesbeck.  Cannot recommend them enough. Organized, insightful, professional.  Excellent partnership and process all the way around. 100% Kudos to Jamesbeck. You presented three incredible candidates, all of whom I am confident could do the job and navigated them with such grace.

Client: Global Long/Short Equity Hedge Fund
Position: Head of Marketing

Working with the Jamesbeck team exceeded our already high expectations. They went above and beyond accommodating our accelerated timeline, as well as some curve balls that were thrown their way. Their experience, professionalism and reputation in the investment management search industry is second to none and it was a pleasure working with their team.

Jamesbeck was amazing. Everything worked out great and it was an awesome process. The successful candidate has been a total homerun. The cultural fit was perfect and that is hard to solve for. All good all around!
