About Us

Founded in 1973, and having completed more than 4,500 search assignments, our experience is deep, our reach is powerful, and our track record is extraordinary.  At JDG Associates, our research-intensive process and personal approach have resulted in successful senior-level searches across a broad spectrum of industries and disciplines in the Washington, D.C. region and nationally.  Our local and national clients include research and consulting organizations; Fortune 1000 corporations; federal, state and local government agencies as well as small, mid and large associations and professional societies.  Moreover, as a GSA-approved small business and minority roundtable member, our thriving public sector practice allows us to provide our client agencies with a selection of diverse, highly-qualified senior-executives. 

Competing for the best talent is time consuming and can have a significant impact on your organization through lost revenue, productivity, and morale.  This is why clients turn to us.  JDG has established an unrivaled reputation for aligning candidates and clients through our consultative, collaborative approach – we never lose sight of the fact that we are accountable for each search engagement.  We are performance-driven and like it that way.  By combining insight, intuition, creativity, and persistence we identify and deliver the most effective and proven leaders.  Our candidates are strategic thinkers and motivated change agents who possess a diversity of experience and business acumen – individuals who will ensure your organization will achieve its immediate and long-term goals and challenges. 

We know that open and ongoing communication with our clients before, during and after the process, allows us to build partnerships, deliver results, and become trusted advisors.  It also allows us to be flexible in our approach and adapt if a client’s needs change during a search.  We become an extension of our clients.  Our passion, commitment to customer service, and client-centric focus has fueled our success for 50 years.
