Crowe-Innes & Associates and Bishop Partners Announce
a Joint Executive Search Specialty Practice in Digital Retail

Crowe-Innes & Associates ( and Bishop Partners (, two successful executive search firms, have announced a partnership to meet the needs of the merging worlds of digital and retail. The combined specialty practice, Starbridge Search, melds the resources of both firms to recruit talent across the digital retail landscape.

Starbridge Search’s innovative blending of two firms—one on the west coast with expertise in global retail and consumer, and the other on the east coast with a focused practice across digital and media—provides clients with a unique, specialty choice in digital retail executive search. “Companies are often at a loss for where to find talent with both the technological skills and the understanding of their customer and brand,” says Managing Partner Susan Bishop. Starbridge Search can assist by strategizing, consulting, searching and placing the right executives to drive digital branding and commerce across multiple platforms.

Bishop and her partner in Starbridge Search, Jenny Crowe-Innes, met as board members for the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC). Over the years, they remained connected as a result of the similarities in their practices and values. Today, Crowe-Innes & Associates has over 20 years of retail and consumer search experience, while Bishop Partners is celebrating 25 years in media and digital recruiting. “We have both built our practices and reputations on a high quality, customized approach to our clients and have exceptional track records in attracting and placing executives,” explains Crowe-Innes. “We are excited to bring our extensive experience to our combined specialty practice in digital retail.”
