Yosef Colish


As Managing Director of Leah Yosef International, Yosef Colish partners with top-tier Registered Investment Advisors and Single & Multi-Family Offices to attract and retain the top performing talent in the industry.

Specializing in executive search for more than 15 years, Yosef has always had an affinity for the RIA and Family Office arenas. He finds the leaders in this space to be true fiduciaries with deep-rooted entrepreneurial spirits and prides himself on being a part of making their companies great. A strong believer in the Fee-based/Fee-Only Independent RIA and Family Office industry, he is on a mission to place professionals at every level, from associate to senior management, who have not only superior qualifications, but the ability and spirit to deepen relationships and grow businesses.

Starting out in the industry as a part-time researcher in 2005, Yosef quickly progressed to a junior recruiter within months. Less than 10 years later, he’d worked his way up to partner specializing in Wealth Management building long-term relationships with leading multi-billion-dollar Financial Services firms. In 2017, Yosef founded Leah Yosef International, becoming a leader in the Wealth & Investment Management Division. Leah Yosef International, Inc. is a proud member of the Sanford Rose Associates® network of offices and is recognized as a Top 9 Retained Executive Search Firm in the USA/Americas.

In his spare time, Yosef enjoys sharpening his skills by attending investment management and recruiting-related seminars and conferences, international travel, spiritual retreats, aerial yoga, Krav Maga, volunteering in his local Long Beach community, and spending quality time with Leah, his better half, and their remarkable children.
