Prior to joining Steven Douglas Associates, Jon and Mitch worked for a large regional search firm recruiting in the RIA, IBD and Financial Advisory space. They have built a strong reputation for client service and delivering exceptional talent to companies.

Steven Douglas Associates, one of the nation’s leading boutique search and project-based professional services firms, has been a recognized leader in identifying and providing access to top talent for corporate clients since 1984. Headquartered in Florida, the firm services emerging and middle-market to Fortune 500 companies throughout the United States.

Last year, Steven Douglas Associates continued to expand by adding a sales, marketing and operations search division in response to the growing demand from clients who are focusing on sales, revenue and driving traffic. At the same time, the recruiting firm moved into an expanded headquarters in Sunrise, where it oversees offices in New York, Minneapolis, Orlando, Tampa, and Chicago. The firm employees about 130 people nationwide.
Steven Douglas’ success plays out in the numbers and accolades. Even with the challenges in the economy, revenue for the firm increased 52 percent in 2010 over the previous year and 34 percent in 2011.
