July 26, 2021 – Executive search firm StevenDouglas has opened new offices in Nashville, TN, and Orange County, CA. Establishing new locations in these markets is a direct response to existing clients’ having thrived in the post-pandemic rebound, and high demand for talent in these regions, according to the search firm. “We are very excited to add Chris Oldham to the healthcare executive search team,” said president Matt Shore. “Nashville was a natural location for expansion, with so many existing clients in the market, and Chris’ deep roots in Nashville and his great reputation for finding top tier talent in the healthcare sector. We are equally excited to open the Orange County office with the internal transfer of Julie Zorn, who is a proven thought leader and executive search expert in the family office sector nationally.”
Mr. Oldham takes on the role of vice president, executive search at StevenDouglas. He leads search engagements in North America, focusing on recruiting senior executives, with an emphasis in healthcare and life sciences, professional services, technology, and private equity. Mr. Oldham has more than 25 years of leadership experience in recruitment, business development, operations management, and consulting in healthcare and professional services. Previously, he was a director with Stanton Chase.
Ms. Zorn, who serves as vice president, runs the family office search practice nationally and is tasked with expanding the financial services practice nationally. Her industry knowledge, network, and reputation as a thought leader in the space, according to the firm, will allow her to continue to partner with global financial institutions, wealth management firms, private banks as well as single and multi-family offices and private equity firms. Prior to joining StevenDouglas, Ms. Zorn was in global private banking and served as an advisor and private wealth consultant to high and ultra-high net worth individuals, families, and family offices.
Established in 1984, StevenDouglas is a boutique executive search and interim resources firm. Its client base is industry agnostic and ranges from start-ups and emerging middle-market to Fortune 500 companies and private equity firms. StevenDouglas has experience in a variety of key areas of expertise, as well as rapid-growth, highly competitive practices, such as IT staffing and consulting. The firm is headquartered in Miami.
“Over the years, I would describe our hiring strategy to being one of situational opportunists,” said Mr. Shore. “We do not typically go after a market and try to find someone in that market. Our approach is typically to find great people and then add them to an existing team or build a team around them in a market or practice area. As I think about where I want to invest of our money in human capital, we want to focus first in geographies where we already have a footprint to build off of and we want to continue to add talent in practices where we are already a strong player and want to add more capability.”
