About Syracuse Partners

Dan and Matt founded Syracuse Partners in 2013 to work closely with clients and help them hire top talent. Their aim is to work with relatively few clients who are fully committed to growing and improving their businesses. Clients use Syracuse Partners because of their understanding of both their business and the demands placed upon candidates.
