Our Commitment to Diversity:

At AE Riley we believe that each search represents a unique opportunity to advance leaders who bring unique talents and experiences, and we identify candidates through relationships built on trust over many years as well as proactive outreach into areas where we are beginning to build relationships. We seek out leaders who act as catalysts for inclusion and equity, and those leaders from organizations that enjoy great success in harnessing the power of a diverse team. Over the past five years, nearly 50 percent of our firm's placements have been diversity hires (people of color and/or women). Our goal is to be a firm that reflects our dynamic clients and communities we serve and that supports them in effecting meaningful, permanent change and real progress.

We understand that positions are filled by people, not resumes or CVs. Our Search team is readily available to our leadership candidates and works closely and continuously with them to ensure they are paired with opportunities ideal for their strengths, needs and career aspirations and are treated with fairness and respect.
