Discover Who We Are


Mughal & McRae is the leading minority-owned retained search and leadership advisory firm in North America. Since 2007, founders Tina Engineer-McRae and Ameer Mughal have earned a reputation for their multicultural insight into talent and distinctive style of engagement. With a heritage stretching across India, the United Kingdom, and the United States, diversity is in our DNA. 

Our candidates, clients, and colleagues are what make our firm. They are equally valued and equally impressive. The professionals we speak to are more than a collection of skills and experiences, they are VIPs who often become clients themselves. These three stakeholders have earned us recognition as number 3 in the top 25 executive search firms (South Florida Business Journal) and a ‘fastest-growing company’ in the region.

Tina was able to quickly connect the dots. I've worked with a lot of recruiters in the past who have tried to pigeon hole me into a particular bucket. But Tina saw the comprehensive profile of everything I had to offer. With her dynamic personality and prominent network of connections, working with Tina was an absolute joy.
