Gemma Burgess is Vice Chairman at Ferguson Partners. Based in the firm’s New York office, Gemma is actively involved in the firm’s Executive/Board Search practice and works closely with Private Equity, Investment Management, Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), Structured Finance, Hedge Fund and Investment Banking clients.
A huge advocate for diversity across the industry, Gemma has consistently placed gender-diverse candidates at a rate of 50 percent – no easy task within an industry that was slow to take on the initiative! A regular speaker and writer on the topic, she is now turning her attentions to the ethnic diversity challenge.
Relocated from the London oﬃce more than eight years ago, Gemma possesses a deep understanding of the international markets and the global flow of both institutional and non-institutional capital in the real estate industry. Prior to joining Ferguson Partners in 2007, Gemma spent two years at Hanson Green working on non-executive appointments and two years at Ramsey Hall working as a generalist within executive search.
When she’s not working with clients, Gemma enjoys traveling and watching her son play soccer.
