Executive search and leadership consulting firm RSR Partners announced Wednesday its acquisition of Higdon Partners, an asset management recruiting and advisory boutique.

Greenwich-based RSR Partners brought Higdon Partners under its umbrella to add more resources and experience to its professional search and advisory group and supplement its financial services practice, according to managing director Graham Michener.

The acquisition “brings some of the best and brightest search talent in the asset management arena to RSR Partners and, more importantly, our clients,” Michener said in a statement.

Those at Higdon Partners are “some of the most experienced and respected professionals in asset management recruiting and advisory,” RSR Partners founder and Chairman Russ Reynolds said in the statement. “They are a wonderful addition to our financial services capabilities.”

Brett Stephens, RSR Partners CEO and longtime Greenwich resident, added that, “Combining our board advisory capabilities with Higdon Partners’ renowned asset management expertise uniquely positions our firm at the increasingly important nexus of institutional shareholders and corporate boardrooms to provide unparalleled strategic counsel and leadership advice.”

RSR Partners was founded in 1993 and has since expanded to offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
