Sheffield Haworth’s Jennifer Montalvo named as Rising Star of Wall Street headhunting

NEW YORK (25th February 2019) 

Congratulations to Sheffield Haworth’s Jennifer Montalvo, MD in the Global Markets team – New York, who has been recognised as one of the rising stars in Wall Street headhunting by Business Insider magazine.

The article picked out the top up and coming headhunters on Wall Street, surveying network finance sources and the upper brass of recruiting firms.  The list is compiled of headhunters who have excelled at placing talent early and often in their young careers.

Some of those featured on the list are traditional heavy hitters, billing millions in fees by placing alpha-generating investors at hedge funds and private-equity shops. Others have carved out niches and built new coverage areas to win business for their firms. And others have started successful firms of their own.

To be eligible, nominees needed to work primarily in New York City, be 40 years old or younger, have glowing recommendations, and a track record of delivering for clients.

Jennifer Montalvo specializes in fixed-income, currencies, and commodities headhunting for big banks, leading the business for Sheffield Haworth in the Americas.

The Bowdoin College grad jumped into financial services headhunting in 2004, landing roles at RSR Partners and CT Partners early on before joining Principal Search in 2006 to help build its FICC practice in New York and London. As the financial crisis hit in 2008, Montalvo was deployed to Hong Kong to build the firm’s presence in Asia, returning to New York two years later as its head of global markets in the Americas.

Montalvo joined Sheffield Haworth to head up FICC headhunting in 2012. She focuses on placing regional and global sales and trading heads at the world’s largest investment banks, placing dozens of senior management roles in recent years and earning internal promotions in the process. Montalvo was promoted to managing director in 2018.
