About Us

the magic starts here

Since the mid-1980’s Datapath has been one of the premier boutique executive search firms in the Tri-State area.

Recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 250 Executive Recruiting Firms out of 40,000+ organizations, we are committed to maintaining that level of quality service to both our clients and our candidates.

We were fortunate enough to have been invited to join NPAWorldwide, a collaboration of over 500 leading national and international search firms that accord us the ability to address any client’s specific needs, in any vertical, anywhere in the world.

Although our expertise resides in the IT vertical, our real strength is the ability to fully grasp & understand our client’s individual ‘nuts ‘n bolts’ requirements. On the other hand and equally important yet oft times more elusive, their unique cultural landscape.

With the vast array of tools at our disposal (from our own extensive candidate database to social & professionally oriented social media & networks) we’ve successfully completed assignments in the Human Resources, Finance and Supply Chain silos among others.
