About Us

Mark/Ryan Associates, Ltd. specializes in Accounting, Finance, and IT recruitment with a customer-centric organizational structure that is valuable, rare and difficult to imitate. Our founders, and many of our staffing experts started their careers in accounting, finance, and IT, so our business was built with professionals who understand how to do the job you’re trying to fill.  Cumulatively, we have over 75 years of Accounting, Finance, IT, and Administrative staffing experience in the Chicagoland market.

Our business revolves around you, our client.  As a boutique firm we strive to be an extension of your organization, not just a staffing agency.  We pride ourselves in having the flexibility to cater to your unique staffing needs vs. national firms that are more transactional in nature. By providing a direct and personal approach to the ever evolving recruiting process, we don’t shy away like some of our competitors from those hard skill sets or niche roles.

Quality, not quantity is our motto.  We realize the precious time every finance or HR professional has during the day; therefore sending our top 3 or 4 pre-screened and pre-qualified candidates per position won’t waste that time!

Mark/Ryan Associates was started by Mark Zambrzycki and Ryan Paquette in 2004 to provide both interim and permanent staffing for accounting and finance needs in the Chicagoland area.  Mark/Ryan Associates was founded on the idea that there is a better way to manage the search process than methods currently being offered by larger firms.  With our commitment to staffing realized, we were honored by Inc. 500 in 2008.

With Mark/Ryan Associates a 100% satisfaction guarantee is the standard. Whether you need Accounting and Financial Services recruitment, IT recruitment or Office & Administrative staffing solutions in Chicago, our recruiters can help. Reach us at 847-240-9100 or contact us online.
