NEW YORK, NY – WhiteCap Search has acquired Q-Search & Advisory to build-out their Front-Office Asset Management & Capital Markets practice. Q-Search & Advisory was founded in 2017 by Kate Quinn who is a well-recognized executive search consultant with a proven track-record covering Hedge Funds, Asset Managers and Investment Banks across asset classes and strategies (systematic, macro, equity long-short, credit, M&A, ECM/DCM, structuring, sales, and trading).  

Kate joins WhiteCap Search as their Global Head of Asset Management & Markets and will be building a team of experienced executive search professionals to enhance the WhiteCap Financial Services offering across sales, trading, marketing, investor relations, banking, quant, and analytics. 

“Finding the WhiteCap platform was a homerun and made sense for my practice,” remarked Kate Quinn. “They cover many of my legacy clients and have a solid reputation for their established professional services, accounting, and finance practices. With a team of 55+ experienced recruiters, this is a strategic alignment that allows us to now cover clients front-to-back in a coordinated and collaborative manner which clients appreciate. My mandate is to grow the team and build out the front-office practice. We have already begun on-boarding clients and team members which is exciting given today’s aggressive hiring market.” 

“We spend so much time building our clients’ businesses from an operational perspective, the added value we can now bring to our clients in covering front-office roles is the natural next step in our strategic direction and growth trajectory,” says Jerry Battipaglia, Managing Partner and CEO of WhiteCap Search.
