Company History

Sanford Rose Associates (SRA) of Akron was started in 1959 by Sanford M. Rose. The business began as a single recruiting office that later became the prototype for development of a global network with 60 locations that fills executive, professional, and technical positions. Sanford Rose Associates has built a reputation for adapting to industry changes, market rotations and evolving candidate priorities.

Over Mr. Rose’s career he was involved in several other personnel businesses which he either started or purchased. Virtually all those businesses either remain in operation today or have been acquired into larger businesses.

In 2004, Sanford received a lifetime recognition award from the National Association of Personnel Services with induction to their Hall of Fame. His numerous accomplishments included pioneering techniques for direct recruiting of passive candidates, development of the job fair concept, and providing an array of recruiting services to satisfy any level of hiring.

The company founder instilled in the Sanford Rose Associates organization a vision and a methodology to consistently succeed in even the most challenging hiring efforts.

When Sanford retired in 2001 his longtime partner Doug Eilertson took over the Sanford Rose Associates business as well as affiliates: TechCenter a contract/temporary services company and Sanford Rose Opportunity Center a business that provides custom programs for recruiting.

Sanford Rose Associates celebrated 50 years in business in early 2009!
