Message From The President

JDG, one of the premiere executive search firms in the Washington, DC region, has been a recognized leader in recruiting senior-level and executive talent since 1973.  Throughout the years, while we have diversified our practice areas and expanded our industry expertise, we have never lost sight of our boutique feel and personal approach.

Our firm has been built through partnering with hundreds of growth-oriented clients in three key practice areas:  corporate, associations, and government.  We take pride in maintaining current relationships as well as building new ones, and our commitment to providing the very best talent to our clients is a role in which we excel.  We know that talented leaders will drive your success, create winning strategies and drive innovation.  In every search we conduct, our mission is to uncover these motivated change agents.

Facing ever-increasing client expectations, constantly shifting market conditions, and emerging competition, organizations today can ill-afford to be complacent about their most critical leadership decisions.  Drawing on our industry expertise and understanding the qualities that define the most effective leaders, our team utilizes a disciplined approach and provides sound judgment to every search.

I pride myself on knowing that our commitment to outstanding service is as strong today as it was when my father founded the firm 50 years ago.  We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations…every time.  Our focus is on our people, our client partnerships and the candidates we serve.  We are performance-driven and aim high.  I encourage you to browse our website and learn more about our firm.
