Alacrity Advisors

Founded in 2010, Alacrity Advisors is a boutique executive search firm specializing in Asset and Wealth Management. Alacrity Advisors provides big search firm experience with the high touch and focused approach that only a small firm can offer. We limit the number of searches we work on at a time to ensure that each client receives the highest level of service and attention. We have a rigorous search process, are tenacious, provide frequent communication, and are mindful of our clients’ time and needs. The result: Searches are completed successfully with alacrity!


  • Over three decades of executive search experience in the Asset & Wealth Management industry, partnering with both large global and boutique clients to recruit exceptional candidates for a variety of functions.
  • The majority of Alacrity’s clients are repeat clients, a testament to our industry knowledge and ability to identify and attract the best candidates. As a result Alacrity’s off-limits list is small compared to our larger competitors.
  • A list of relevant searches and references are available upon request.


  • We only work on three searches at a time, enabling us to dedicate the resources and time necessary for each search.
  • Clients feel confident knowing exactly who is representing their brand in the marketplace and with potential candidates.
  • Candidates are developed and interviewed by Julie Stevenson.


  • Alacrity’s approach was created to leverage the best practices we’ve compiled over our years in the industry.  Our process is focused on delivering qualified candidates to our clients with alacrity.
  • We conduct original research for every search guided by our extensive network and proprietary database.
  • Understanding that it is top of mind for many firms, we strive to provide a diverse slate of candidates on each search.
  • Our unique model of client collaboration drives the search to a successful offer.
