MOVEMENT acquires retained search firm Bennett Ware Group. The search firm continues torrid organic growth with new operations in Sarasota, FL., Cleveland, OH., Las Vegas, NV., and Minneapolis, MN.

Movement Search & Delivery, a professional headhunting firm with a global reach, has recently acquired Bennett Ware Group of Charleston, SC, Columbus, OH, and Fort Meyers, FL. Bennett Ware Group is a boutique retained search firm focusing on private equity-owned portfolio companies and family-owned businesses. Founder Stacy Ware began her headhunting career in 1995 and integrated the business seamlessly under the MOVEMENT Search & Delivery umbrella.

“Historically, Bennett Ware’s focus has been partnering with CEOs and Presidents to identify, evaluate, and onboard their leadership teams. The goal has been to equally represent our executive-level candidates and long-served clients through open and honest communication. MOVEMENT’s approach to the business aligns perfectly with the values and peer-cooperative approach of the Bennett Ware Group,” says Ware. “While our focus for the last ten years has been strictly retained executive search, MOVEMENT offers our clients the full menu of executive search: retained, contingency, and project-based staffing. With Movement Search & Delivery, we now have the bandwidth of 65 headhunters in all three time zones who speak with a unified voice and purpose. Our clients have been overwhelmingly supportive of the expanded services we can now offer. We are thrilled to partner with a search firm with an earned reputation of excellence that aligns with core values that have represented the Bennett Ware Group for the last decade.”

MOVEMENT is embarking on a significant expansion initiative, strategically positioning itself in key regions across the United States. Since the start of 2024, the firm has strategically recruited over 14 highly skilled and experienced Headhunters, expanding their operations into Sarasota, FL., Las Vegas, NV., Cleveland, OH., and Minneapolis, MN. This expansion is a testament to our commitment to providing top-notch services to our clients in these strategic locations.

“Our expansion marks an exciting milestone for MOVEMENT as we continue to be the recruitment firm of choice for those who have dedicated their life’s work to the business of Headhunting,” said Doug Scott, President. “In the ever-changing landscape of the 3rd party recruiting industry, countless high-level search consultants are looking for a happy home to conduct their business with like-minded, team-oriented professionals. We are thrilled to welcome these great Headhunting professionals into the MOVEMENT family.”

The client-centric search firm, headquartered in downtown Clarkston, MI., now has nearly 70 recruiters in 13 offices servicing North America in every industry and specialty area.
