In 1984, Steve Sadaka, our CEO, founded StevenDouglas as a search firm based in Miami and serving the South Florida marketplace. Over the years, we had the good fortune of expanding our business outside of South Florida by serving clients needs around the country and finding great talent to open new offices for our firm in key markets. Our expansion into Minneapolis, NY and then other markets in Florida was the first step. We then transferred long-term trusted company leaders to open offices in Seattle and Baltimore. Most recently we have launched a Chicago office, an Atlanta office, a Latin America Division that we run out of Miami and our first Canadian office in Toronto to better serve our clients.
Today, as identified above, we have a network of offices throughout North America with experts that have tremendous knowledge of the markets they serve. As a firm, we have clients that are Headquartered in other parts of the world, but the US, Canada, and Latin America is where our expertise outperforms. Making us unique is that we not only help our clients build out world class executive teams through our Retained Search practice, but we also can help those executives build their middle management teams through a disciplined focused contingency search approach.
For over 30 years, companies have turned to StevenDouglas when they need highly qualified talent to build their organizations. Powered by our years of experience and proven track record, our successful search and recruitment strategy delivers the strongest candidates for outstanding leadership teams.
