The Right Person in the Right Place Can Change the World

About Us

Koya Partners was founded on a single belief: The Right Person in the Right Place Can Change the World.

Since our founding in 2004, that belief has evolved into a guiding philosophy for the entire firm. We are deeply committed to the idea that the right leader—with the right support and resources—can transform an organization and have a deep and measurable impact on our world.

Since our founding, Koya has conducted over a thousand executive searches across the United States and around the world. Our team has grown, our methodology has sharpened, and the range of services we offer has expanded. In 2019, Koya Partners joined forces with Diversified Search, becoming part of The Diversified Search Group. Both firms have been founded and led by women and have long track records of building diversity and equity internally and through their placements. We will never stray from our mission: To help our clients achieve their missions by providing customized, strategic, and innovative services and support for acquiring and retaining exceptional talent.

We pursue this work with respect, joy, and excellence; and with a staff that is both exceptionally talented and deeply experienced in executive search and the sectors we serve.
