About

CarterPierce is the leading provider of outsourced recruiting services to private equity funds and hedge funds based outside of New York.

Our firm provides its clients with a manageable slate of sophisticated and pedigreed candidates tailored to each client’s technical, philosophical, and cultural needs.

CarterPierce was founded by Jill Pierce who, while working for several larger recruiting firms, recognized that the West Coast was underrepresented from a client coverage perspective. She believed that a sole focus on California, and eventually the broader Western United States, would enable her to provide superior service to her partner firms.

By working with a select candidate pool that targets opportunities outside of New York, we are able to devote more time to becoming familiar with a potential candidate’s qualifications and unique talents. We work closely with you to understand your specific needs and desired attributes in order to present a manageable slate of candidates. Additionally, in order to ensure a unique level of personal service, we have intentionally limited the number of firms with which we have partnered.
