This important move reinforces the firm’s commitment to investing in and further expanding the capabilities of the Financial Services Search practice.

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida – January 25, 2023 – StevenDouglas promotes Ross Cohen to Managing Director of the Financial Services Search Division as part of a continued commitment to offer best-in-class, specialized search services to their growing roster of Financial Services clients across all asset classes. Cohen will be responsible for continuing the growth of the firm’s practice in the Investment Banking, Private Equity, Hedge Fund, Investment Management, Investor Relations, Corporate Development, Real Estate, and Alternatives arenas. He joined the firm in 2017, playing an indispensable role in building StevenDouglas’ Financial Services practice in these highly specialized areas. Cohen is ideal to lead in this role since he began his career as an Equity Research Associate at Lazard Capital Markets. He brings direct experience working in the financial sector and comprehensive knowledge of critical, often niche skills needed for high-impact placements.

Last year Brett Nortman joined the firm to co-head the expansion of this practice. Prior to Nortman joining StevenDouglas, Nortman and Cohen worked together at a global executive search firm in New York where they placed senior-level investment professionals across the buy and sell-side. Cohen & Nortman bring over 24 years of financial services recruiting experience and offer a uniquely positioned value proposition with New York pedigree and the backing of the top executive search firm in the Southeast to help connect top-tier talent with their clients nationally.

“We are extremely excited to promote Ross to the MD role, as we to continue to expand our capabilities in Financial Services across all asset classes and create great outcomes for our clients, said Matt Shore, CEO of StevenDouglas.” He went on to say, “Given that our two largest markets are NY and Florida, the migration of firms south has given us a unique competitive advantage given our 39-year history and our position as the largest Search firm in Florida. Couple that with the experience, expertise and relationships that Ross, Brett and the team bring to every search mandate, and you have a winning combination.”
