MEET THE

HALO TEAM

DOUGLAS BROWN

CEO/Co-founder

I’m the CEO and Founding Partner at Halo, where I lead Human Resources, Finance, and Technology search across all levels and geographies for a select group of clients from a variety of industries. My career started at the staffing firm, Delta Technical Solutions running a full-desk across the manufacturing vertical for clients in the Midwest. After quick success at DTS, I transitioned to a retained executive search firm, where I quickly climbed the ladder becoming a partner at DHR’s emerging-leader business, Jobplex.

As a Partner at Jobplex, I led Human Resources, Finance, and Sales search at the Director, Vice President, and Individual Contributor level, and assisted with a program supporting military veterans transitioning into civilian life. I was recruited into Lucas Group to build out their Chicago Human Resources search practice, before leaving to join Hunt Club, where I was able to partner with start-ups, mid-market, and enterprise organizations assisting with their hiring needs.

I graduated from Roosevelt University in 2012 with a BA in Economics. On the weekend, you can find me on the golf course working on my swing or spatula in hand at the grill.

We are a boutique firm

Looking to build long-term relationships with companies that we can truly impact by connecting with the right talent.
