Billy Dexter

Passionate Relationship Builder & Connector
"Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity."


As a pioneering senior executive in talent acquisition and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, my experiences span an array of industries, from executive search and consulting to entertainment, wireless communication, global transportation, and university administration.

As a thought leader and sought-after speaker on career-building topics, including networking, personal branding, and corporate board readiness, I have served as a managing partner with Heidrick & Struggles since 2009, a global leader in executive search and leadership advisory services.

The Diversity Advisory Practice we created is a valued resource for the firm, helping high-profile clients build diverse leadership teams and inclusive solutions for acquiring top talent and developing exceptional leaders. My expertise in shaping DEI strategies and talent acquisition initiatives has been furthered through executive positions at MTV Networks, a Viacom company; Hudson Inclusion Solutions, a diversity consulting practice; Monster Worldwide, a global online employment solution; and Deloitte, the world’s largest professional services firm.
