With the appointment of Andrea Waines and Sam Dinte as our first board members, B. Riley Farber Executive Search is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic advisory board for the practice. Both Andrea and Sam are esteemed executive search and human capital leaders, who bring a wealth of knowledge and decades of hands-on experience to the table.

I am delighted to participate in the growth journey with the B. Riley Farber team.”

Sam Dinte is the President of Dinte Executive Search—a US-based member firm of IIC Partners, Farber’s global network of executive search firms. Dinte has a rich history as a boutique specialist firm, helping clients grow, innovate, and lead the competition in their respective industries.
