October 2, 2018 – Executive search firm StevenDouglas is continuing its recent expansion with the addition of a new office in Jacksonville, FL. This marks the firm’s sixth office in the Sunshine State.
Leading the new office is HR veteran Ken Heinrich.
Recent gains in construction, manufacturing, professional services and tourism helped annual job growth rise to 4.3 percent last year, making Jacksonville one of the top job growth markets in the U.S., and the perfect place for StevenDouglas to open its fourteenth location, the firm said.
“We are excited to open up an office in Jacksonville as we have been doing business in the market for over 20 years, but have not had a local presence,” said Matt Shore, president of StevenDouglas. “This expansion is in direct response to continued requests from existing clients with a significant presence locally. Our office here will help us leverage the area’s diverse talent pool and expand our client footprint.”
Mr. Heinrich joined StevenDouglas in the human resources search division last year as a senior recruiter. His sales and recruiting experience make him an important part of the continued success and growth of this practice, said the firm. Mr. Heinrich previously worked for consulting firm Hunt Hollis, out of both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami offices, where he honed his candidate identification and attraction skills while building partnerships with clients.
“As the firm grows domestically and internationally, we want to make sure we continue to lead the Florida market since this is our home turf,” said Mr. Shore.
Established in 1984, StevenDouglas is a boutique search and interim resources firm headquartered in Sunrise, FL. Its client base is industry agnostic and ranges from start-ups and emerging middle-market companies to Fortune 500 companies and public- and private equity-owned firms.
Growing Search Firm
StevenDouglas continues to be in growth mode, reporting a 200 percent increase in personnel in the last five years, and numerous new offices opening across the U.S. Just recently, the firm opened a new office in Miami. “The Miami office will also be home to our rapidly expanding Latin America division,” said Mr. Shore. “It’s many of the relationships our CEO Steve Sadaka started building when he founded the firm in Miami almost 35 years ago that are still some of the top clients we work with today, placing talent all over the U.S., Canada and Latin America.”
This spring, the firm acquired Tallience, a full-service technology search, staffing and consulting firm located in Fort Lauderdale. As part of the acquisition, Tallience founding partner Tim Baron joined StevenDouglas as managing director of its Washington, D.C. metro office. Tallience was started in 2010 by Mr. Baron and his partners. The firm, which has a strong presence and client base in Florida and the Mid-Atlantic region, delivers technology talent across various industries in the commercial sector as well as cleared talent across the federal government.

Prior to that, the firm expanded with the launch of a new office in Atlanta and the addition of David Mauger as a director of technology search. Mr. Mauger is responsible for developing StevenDouglas’ information technology search practice by leveraging his experience in recruiting executive and middle-management professionals across cybersecurity, data and analytics, application development and emerging digital technologies in the Atlanta area.
Earlier this year, StevenDouglas expanded into Canada with the opening of a new office in Toronto. Navinder Binning, who joined the firm as vice president, is leading the executive search business in the Canadian region, said the firm. Her focus is on further developing the recruiters’ presence by delivering high-caliber talent for Canada’s leading industries including industrial and mining, energy, real estate and life sciences. Before joining StevenDouglas, Ms. Binning was a principal with the Bedford Consulting Group, where she helped place C-suite executives and operating managers into many of Canada’s emerging and established organizations within prominent, global industries.
