Kaplan Partners Celebrates A Milestone!

Kaplan Partners, a leading retained executive search and talent advisory firm, today celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the firm.  Founded two decades ago by Alan J. Kaplan, the firm continues its focus on serving the financial industry, along with high growth and technology companies.

Early-on Kaplan Partners served mainly local institutions from a small office in downtown Philadelphia.  Today the firm has clients across thirteen states, and has successfully completed over fifty CEO searches—many for publicly traded companies.  The firm’s expertise now spans banking, asset management, corporate finance, insurance, mortgage banking and private equity firms, including their portfolio companies in manufacturing, technology and services.  The firm also conducts Board of Directors Search for clients in both financial and non-financial firms.

Kaplan Partners today is the country’s only retained executive search firm member of the American Bankers Association and the Independent Community Bankers of America.  The firm is also a credentialed member of the Association of Executive Search Consultants, the industry leading association which sets the standards for ethics and best practices among retained search firms worldwide.  Kaplan Partners Founder Alan J. Kaplan currently sits on the AESC Americas Council, and is presently a member of the AESC CEO Search Committee tasked with identifying the association’s next leader.

Kaplan Partners will be hosting a dinner for clients and associates of the firm in early June, to celebrate its milestone anniversary.  Anthony M. Santomero, currently Chairman of the Board of Citibank, N.A. and former President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, will deliver special remarks at this event.
