A Commitment to Diversity

Curating Diverse Teams

We value the importance of building diversity, whether in culture, ethnicity, skill sets, and experience. We curate executives of extraordinary collective insight, strengths, and complementary talents.

Our broad network of qualified talent ranging from go getters to industry superstars, enables us to present a representatively diverse collection of talent for each project.
As one of our key values, Amsterdam Associates embraces our commitment to consistently provide a selection of diverse executives showcasing talented leaders from the retail industry.
We view this as a guiding principle to help ensure the quality of our placements are mindful, bespoke, and special.
