Global exec search firm SRI acquires Marquee Search

Global executive search and consulting firm SRI has acquired Marquee Search, an executive search firm operating in the sport sector.

The partnership brings together Marquee’s 20 years of North American sports expertise with SRI’s 20 years of serving the converging sport, media, entertainment and technology landscape across four continents.

The acquisition will see Jeff Yocom (formerly founder and president of Marquee Search) and Tyler Nelson (formerly director, executive search, Marquee Search) join SRI to significantly bolster SRI’s global sports practice. They will both be based in Portland, Oregon, further strengthening the existing North American team.

Yocom, now partner – sport, SRI, has spent the last 20 years placing leaders and professionals in new positions across the sports and live entertainment industries. He is also a member of the Positive Coaching Alliance’s Leadership Council.

Nelson is now senior associate – sport, SRI. 

Yocum and Nelson join Paul Chidley, SRI’s partner based out of Los Angeles, in serving the North American sports market.
