I had the distinct pleasure of befriending Doug, and he easily stands out as one of the most passionate and amazing recruiters. His approach pulses with humility, interest in others, and most importantly unique insights about the industry unparalleled by others. Above all, Doug is a unifier of people who radiates kindness. He has an insatiable desire to learn about everything and anything, and selflessly help others find their perfect fit. If you have the chance of working with him please do (and attend one of his organ concerts)!

Work with Douglas has been a true honor. What really stood out to me about Doug was his attention to detail. Doug set aside time to check in with me every week, encouraged me to keep going, and gave me advice and encouragement before each interview. Doug was there for me every week during the interview process to give me feedback and reassurance, even though it lasted for several weeks. His availability despite his busy schedule made the interview process more convenient. To sum up, I am grateful for the opportunity to have met Doug, a wonderful human being. Finding someone like him is incredibly challenging, so I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the near future.

It has been a great experience working with Douglas this year. Doug connected me with several hedge funds and prop shops and helped me get my dream offer at my dream firm. Doug was the ideal headhunter that I was looking for! Doug worked very closely and tightly with me. This helped me with my procrastination by keeping me on the track of different interviews. Otherwise, I would have not had prepared anything before those interviews. In addition, Doug is also a nice friend to chat with. After my job hunting, we also had catchups routinely. He shared his concert video with me and it was really good. I look forward to go to his concert in person!

Douglas has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Within a short period of time he was able to introduce me to the field of quantitative finance, help me with my preparation, and land me my dream role! I can honestly say the trajectory of my life is all the better for having met and worked with him. Throughout the whole process, Doug was only ever a phone call away. Given the intensity of the process and the competitive nature of the field, having regular catchups with him made all the difference, I wouldn’t have been nearly as well off had I gone it alone or with a more “run of the mill” recruitment service. Good headhunters are (ironically) difficult to find. Rest assured that with Douglas, you have found a GREAT headhunter. I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Douglas was recommended to me as a headhunter with top tier resources and ability. I was at first very intrigued with his unique life experiences and therefore had a good first impression of him. Later this impression was confirmed by our interactions. I have had horrific experience with headhunters before. It was always clear to me that they operate with their interest as priority and would sacrifice mine when needed. Douglas surprised me by making the client's interest his priority, which showed through salary negotiation in particular. On top of all this, Douglas has very interesting personalities.
