Raines International Expands to Miami and Philadelphia
Leading Talent Advisory and Search Firm Invests in Key Growth Markets
Raines International, one of the leading talent consulting and executive search firms in the Americas, announced the opening of offices in Miami and Philadelphia. Effective immediately, Chief Executive Officer Dan Smith is based in the Miami office.
The opening of the Miami office supports Raines’ strategic client development and growth plan, balancing current market demands and the opportunity to pursue accelerated growth in new sectors. “I am thrilled to be personally opening our newest office in Miami. We have seen a tremendous increase in executives, corporations, and investment firms moving to Florida in the years leading up to the pandemic, and that trend only strengthened over the past year,” Smith said. “This is a truly exciting time for the Florida market broadly and Miami business market in particular, and our presence here reflects our orientation around client service.”
In concert with the challenges that the past year presented to businesses globally, Raines saw incredible growth across its service lines, including its Advisory practice delivering Diversity Equity & Inclusion and Executive Assessment capabilities for organizations. In addition, last year Raines opened offices in three new geographical markets, grew its team by 40% while greatly increasing diversity at all levels, and launched multiple new practice areas. “I am extremely proud of our championship team and their partnership with our ecosystem of constituents,” Smith said. “Their dedication, resilience and commitment to our mission are exemplary and inspiring. We are determined to make a difference for everyone we work with.”
Last month, Raines opened a new office at Three Logan Square in Center City, Philadelphia. Led by Engy Lamour, Senior Vice President and head of Raines’ Financial Services practice, the Philadelphia team will be primarily focused on clients in Financial Services, Cybersecurity, Healthcare, and Industrials.
Raines offers three services: executive search, advisory services for leadership and organizations, and talent management for individuals. Founded in 1969, offices are in Austin, Boston, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.
