Earlier this summer, executive search firm Sextant Search Partners began winding down, after Korn/Ferry successfully poached three of its partners (it wanted a couple more, but three’s not too shabby). Now, we’ve learned that ex-Sextant partner Holly Davidson has joined up with Lancor Partners, which focuses exclusively on senior level GP searches and C-level portfolio company searches.
Lancor was formed a few years back by a pair of Heidrick & Struggles vets, with offices in London and Brussels. Davidson will work out of San Francisco, while the firm also has hired two more U.S. partners in Chris Conti and Simon Francis (both were previously with CT Partners). That’s expected to be all for Lancor’s senior team, although there will be a handful of junior folks.
