About Charney & Associates

Committed to making a difference in the recruiting industry, Nancy S. Charney founded Charney & Associates in November of 1994, armed with only a medical device directory and a phone.

Today, our firm is nationally known as one of the top recruiting firms in the medical device industry, highly regarded as an organization that genuinely wants to see our clients and candidates succeed.

Recently, our desire to make a difference has led us to expanding our services into the rapidly growing information technology industry in Northeast Ohio, where we have helped both well-established and early stage start-up companies find and hire top-quality technology professionals.
