Search Firms Eye D.C. for Expansion

Washington, D.C., is the fourth-largest metropolitan economy in the U.S. Many organizations such as law firms, independent contractors (both defense and civilian), non-profit groups, lobbying firms, trade unions, and industry trade & professional associations have their headquarters in or near D.C. to be close to the Federal government. Consumer goods companies headquartered in the area include Rosetta Stone, Style Vibe, Think Geek, Alpha Industries, Mars, Customink, and Bare International.  

A number of executive search firms have sensed the opportunity and expanded into the area in recent months, or beefed up staff. Here’s a look at a few who’ve made the move from the Hunt-Scanlon Media archives:
