Our Story

“I remember my very first day of training in 1988. My mother handed me a resume and said ‘never forget this is a person. They have lives, families,  always treat them with respect.’ I have never forgotten this and it continues to be the foundation of our approach."

Leslie Klein Frankel, President 

1970: Tobey and Harvey Klein launch the first Douglas office.

Over the next 20 years Tobey (above left) and  Harvey expand throughout New York/ New Jersey area and welcome Leslie to the family business.

1991: After marrying Disney/Pixar artist, Leslie heads west, expanding Douglas into bi-coastal offices.

Since Tobey and Harvey's retirement, Leslie (above left) partners with Polly Strabala  (above right), who further enhances the Douglas reach with her supply chain and technology experience. Now fully based on the West Coast, Douglas continues to bring decades of experience and exceptional service to clients and candidates across the country.
