Sheets Associates Investment Search is a boutique executive search firm devoted exclusively to investment search. The firm was founded in 1996 by April Sheets, a highly experienced investment search professional. The search firm specializes in recruiting of investment professionals and management, including both equity and fixed income search.
April Sheets brings twenty years executive search experience devoted exclusively to the investment management arena. Her executive search career began with a regional retained search firm specializing in financial services recruiting including insurance, banking and investment search. She served as Senior Vice President and lead recruiter for the firm’s most senior searches; additionally managing research activity and staff. Participating in, and being accountable for all phases of search activity is experience that contributes greatly to Sheets Associates success today.
Prior to beginning her own search practice, Ms. Sheets was hired to begin and manage an in-house search function for Boatmen’s Trust Company; a manager of over $40.B institutional trust assets. The search unit recruited all senior and mid level management talent for the trust company. All investment and trust placements were successfully completed in-house, including senior management placements such as division heads for securities lending and information systems. Other completed searches included senior portfolio managers, equity and fixed income analysts, traders and trading management, product management, and institutional sales representatives.
