Who We Are

People-focused Talent Acquisition

At Marcus & Associates, we are in the relationship-building business. Our firm was founded in 1991 on a simple premise and with a straightforward mission: if you take the time to understand the companies you are representing—all the nuances of their industry and the positions you are given to fill—then stick with them in good times and bad, never compromising your integrity or process, you will achieve a partnership that consistently benefits everyone.

Our Job Doesn’t Begin or End with a Placement

Taking a cue from our personal lives, we have learned that the key to building long lasting relationships is listening to our business partners, establishing trust and respect and forming a truly symbiotic relationship where we continually learn from one another. We take your needs seriously and know that without providing an attentive and compassionate ear, we cannot do our job effectively. Whether you are an employer or a candidate we see you as a valued partner and recognize that your success is our success. We work hard to maintain a real-time and comprehensive view of industry issues and trends, serving as your eyes and ears in highly competitive markets.

We are constantly nurturing existing relationships and building new ones; creating and maintaining productive lines of communication with industry leaders that grant us direct access to critical talent and career changing opportunities.
