Executive search gained
a new resource on February 4, 1999…

…with the founding of The QualiFind Group.

In 1999, Warren Carter launched The QualiFind Group with a focus on serving the industrial and agribusiness sector within the US and Mexico cross-border region. Some twenty-plus years later Forbes magazine ranks The QualiFind Group in the Top 20 Search and Recruitment firms in America.

Over the years, our organizational capabilities, processes and resources evolved to create two distinctly different practices – The QualiFind Group and The ExeQfind Group.

The ExeQfind Group is focused on finding, engaging and closing on key senior management to executive-level talent; while The QualiFind Group finds, engages and secures technical and functional specialists at the individual contributor to management-level.

Global Footprint (2008)
