Executive Managing Partner
Mr. Doug Braase’s professional career started in the United States Navy working with electronics and information technology as a missile technician. While working in the military he was able to visit numerous countries and get to know many different cultures along the way. Early on, he realized his enjoyment of relationship building and considered pursing a path towards human resource management.
Once his active service engagement concluded, Mr. Braase attended Boise State University where he successfully triple-majored having completed a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in General Business, Entrepreneur Management, and Human Resource Management. During his time at the university, he simultaneously worked in IT and gained valuable knowledge in customer service, leadership training, and troubleshooting technical computer issues.
After college graduation, he worked for a startup company as the director of human resources helping employee growth and training within the HR department. In 2015, Doug moved to Tampa, FL and began working with Maxim Healthcare/TravelMax to recruit for medical personnel who were needed for travel assignments in hospitals all over the United States. Most recently he has worked with WellCare Health Plans in the talent acquisition department placing internal candidates in hundreds of medical and operational roles. He has worked full cycle recruiting for candidates in roles ranging from medical assistants and nurses all the way to director and executive level.
Mr. Braase has really enjoyed working in the Healthcare field and looks to continue that excitement as an Executive Managing Partner within ISG. His primary geographical area is the southeastern region of the United States.
