David Cone-Gorham has been recruiting for New York City–area real estate developers, construction companies, and institutions since February 1998. With over 18 years of experience in the NYC construction industry, he has amassed an extensive and deep network of qualified candidates, clients, and friends within the construction community.
In 1998 David joined a growing agency based in Boston and focused on construction recruiting. He grew quickly with this firm and led a team of recruiters dedicated to the New York region. In 2003 David joined Construction Recruiters, Inc., as he was drawn to their ethical stance on business practices and core values. At Construction Recruiters, David brought his knowledge of the New York construction industry and grew another division, which focused on tri-state area construction recruitment with an emphasis on full service. In 2007 he opened the Construction Recruiters office in Manhattan.
In December 2008, David Cone-Gorham created NYCM Search, focused on providing high-level recruitment services to primarily private sector clients in the NYC area. NYCM Search currently provides recruitment services to a wide variety of clients including owners, developers, private equity firms, high-net worth individuals, retailers, REITs, investment companies, private schools, institutions, owner’s rep firms, construction management firms, general contractors and specialty contractors.
NYCM Search is celebrating its eighth year in business with a growing network of over 15,000 tri-state area AEC and real estate professionals. David has placed hundreds of employees and served over 80 different hiring companies. He’s done all of this while also maintaining a level of integrity, transparency, honesty and effectiveness, which is rarely found within the headhunting industry. As NYCM Search’s client and candidate network continues to increase dramatically, it has been been fortunate enough to maintain a standard of working with like minded, professional and above-board working professionals and client companies.
