Founder & CEO, ICS – A Korn Ferry Company
Doug wears several hats in his role as, with his primary objective being to transcend business relations, turning them into something more personal. Other aspects of Doug’s role are more technical. It is his responsibility to scrutinize the operational strategy of the company while supporting internal team members and expanding upon the vision of Korn Ferry. His combination of business acumen and ability to connect deeply with others allows each member of the community to thrive and grow.
Doug helped grow and transform ICS from having a strong focus on IT staffing to a full-service recruiting and staffing firm.
Doug himself has been a finalist for the 2009 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and was nominated again in 2013. He was also nominated for Crain’s 40 under 40 in 2010.
Doug credits much of his success to the belief that to be successful in the staffing business, one must gain a true understanding of the other person’s position, whether they are a client or a candidate. His highly personalized approach is the most effective way to match qualified candidates with positions where they can excel.
Doug earned his B.S. from the State University of New York at Albany in economics with a minor in business and is a supporter of the Northern Westchester Community Center. He also gives back to his community by serving on the Board of Baking Memories 4 Kids, a nonprofit that sells holiday cookies and baking kits. Their proceeds are used to send children with life-threatening illnesses and their families on an all-expenses paid, weeklong, vacation to Orlando.
