StevenDouglas, a nationally-known Search and Interim Resources firm, continues to expand by opening an office in Westchester County to service the client demand in New York and the northeast. This marks the fifteenth StevenDouglas office opened in the U.S., and the fifth new office location for the firm in 2018.
New York City is currently undergoing the largest and longest job expansion since World War II. A report by the Office of the New York City Comptroller sited the City added 72,700 jobs in 2017, and in the eight years since the end of the recession employment has grown by 702,200, more than during any other expansion. In the same February 2018 report, business services was the largest source of new jobs between 2009 and 2017, accounting for one-quarter of the gains.
In response to the growing job market, Don Zinn is named VP of Executive Search as the leader of the Westchester office. He is a CEO and entrepreneur with over 30 years sales, management, and hiring experience, specializing in helping organizations grow through people-focused management. For the last 13 years, Don has been in search with a focus on Sales, Marketing, Finance, and Human Resources leadership. Prior to entering the search field, he founded 7 companies, raised over $25 million in private and venture equity, sold 3 companies and has been an Inc. 500 winner and a finalist in the E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
“What makes Don so special to our organization is not only the many years of recruiting experience that he has, but more importantly all the time he has spent in executive leadership roles,” said President Matt Shore. He went on to say, “His experience gives him invaluable insight into the kind of talent a client needs, as well as a full understanding of the role itself, making him a true advisor to the companies he serves.”
Mr. Zinn’s experience is focused on helping companies scale to the next level, and successfully fill out their management teams with optimal talent and fit. He spent his career building technology companies with a focus on the consumer products space, and is the person who built the go-to-market (sales and marketing) process and organizations for those businesses.
“Joining StevenDouglas at this point in my career is a perfect fit for me. With a focus on middle market, often PE funded and fast-growing companies that are working towards scaling and growing to the next level, we have a unique ability to bring together a best-in-class recruiting team along with a rigorous search process that will result in client success – an optimal hire”, said Don Zinn. He then went to say, “I’m thrilled to be here to help grow the committed search solutions business at StevenDouglas, and I believe we will succeed because we are equipped to add value to clients who truly need to bring on game-changing talent!”
