DALLAS, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Kingsley Gate Partners' transformation into a global search firm, founder and search industry innovator Nancy Albertini has recruited two search industry veterans to join her in the CEO suite. Founded in 2006, the firm has steadily added to its partnership ranks in the last two years. Now as this fast-growing search firm begins to operate locations around the globe, the Office of the CEO is being expanded to ensure continued strong leadership at the helm. Joining Ms. Albertini are Buster Houchins and Umesh Ramakrishnan, both seasoned search executives with outstanding search execution and firm management credentials. Buster and Umesh have been architects of growth of one of the largest search firms in the world and are armed with the knowledge and experience of scaling a global business.

"There were two principal reasons I invited Buster and Umesh to join me in the leadership suite of this firm," said Nancy Albertini, "First, I wanted to surround myself with leaders who have grown a search business successfully. Second, I wanted to assure all my partners that power and authority will never be isolated in the hands of one person at Kingsley Gate Partners. I have got to know both of them at a personal and professional level and I am confident that this leadership team is poised to build a global search firm for the digital age."

Buster Houchins added: "Listening to Nancy's vision for the future was enough to energize me but after seeing the groundwork she has laid in terms of partners and infrastructure, I knew that Kingsley Gate Partners was inextricably going to become my future. I am very excited to be here and to team with Nancy and Umesh in building a firm that will set the tone for how this industry will operate in the future."

"I have always believed that technology will change this space dramatically in the very near future" said Umesh Ramakrishnan on accepting the invitation. "I was looking for a platform that did not just market that concept but invested in it to serve the needs of their clients. After meeting Nancy, it became very apparent to me that Kingsley Gate Partners was that firm and I am delighted to be part of the leadership of the firm that will blaze the trail forward!"
