Director leaves top search firm to set up a executive search and consulting firm, HQ Global Search.

James Quick, an ever present in the private wealth recruitment market has set up shop.  HQ Global Search opened for business as of 2022, focused on supporting the hiring, merger and consulting needs of law firms who support the HNW and UHNW community with their personal and business affairs.  Additionally the company will support UHNW individuals and family offices with introductions to “best fit” Partners for specialist skills.

With over 15 years of recruitment experience at top executive search firms, Mr. Quick says he “will build a company, more transparent, more time saving and more focused in an area of the market which is under supported”.  

This new venture, with its highly specialized market focus, will build on Mr.Quick’s landmark Partner, team project growth and team moves previously reported here on eprivateclient, including the largest private client and family team moves in the UK.

When asked about it, Mr. Quick said “I couldn’t be happier or more excited than I am now, and the support I’ve received already has been extraordinary.  Emotional intelligence and a creative mindset are such under-valued skills in recruitment but in my opinion they are the heartbeat of being a specialist in a space which requires deep understanding of a unique community.”
