In 1992, Options Group started as a technology recruiting firm placing application and analytic programmers, along with quant researchers focusing on derivative strategies. In 1995, we separated our business into a tech practice and a financial services practice. Working out of a 600 sq. ft. room on Penn Plaza with six people, the founders of Options Group would cold call and network via phone and fax.
In 1996, the founders of Options Group purchased a 10,000 sq. foot building in Gramercy Park to empower expansion and growth. Our flagship office in New York City has since grown from six to eighty people, and during this time, we have demonstrated true consistency in managing relationships as many of our original clients continue to be clients of the firm today.
Options Group has now grown its’ offering across a variety of consultative and advisory services with talent acquisition still being one on of its largest business lines for financial services and technology. The Los Angeles office has been established in 2019 and proudly serves as the US west coast headquarters to the firm’s global operation, and it is where the global strategic, corporate development, administrative, intelligence and analytics are leveraged for clients both regionally and across the US.
