November 22, 2016 – Washington, D.C.-based executive search firm Cordia Resources (formerly Cordia Search) has tapped Marc Zeid to serve as an executive search director and a senior member of the firm’s management team. Based in Rockville, MD, he will be responsible for expanding Cordia Resources among the finance and accounting community.
With over 20 years of experience helping clients find talent for accounting and finance roles, Mr. Zeid brings to the Cordia Resources team an extensive network of relationships with clients in multiple industries, including technology, biotechnology, professional services, government contracting and financial services. An industry veteran, Mr. Zeid has been a key player in the Washington, D.C., accounting and finance talent market. Most recently, he served as a partner at Capital Search Group, where he specialized mostly in accounting and finance placements. Earlier in his career he was a director with Logue and Rice.
“Marc’s extensive contacts within the finance and accounting community, wealth of experience, and industry knowledge, make him a key addition to our Cordia Resources team,” said managing partner Joe Greeves. “I am confident Marc will play a vital role in executing on our vision to be the leading finance and accounting recruiting and staffing firm in the Washington, D.C., area.”
