Congratulations to Alex Hirschenfang for being selected as May’s Employee Spotlight!


Originally from The Bronx, Alex has spent most of his life in the NYC area. After graduating from SUNY New Paltz where he was a communications major and captain of the volleyball team, Alex went to work for a trading firm on the floor of the American Stock Exchange. After 4-5 years learning the business and progressing there, he moved over to the “Big Board” (NYSE) to further his career. After close to 10 years there working for a few different prestigious trading firms and moving up the ranks, he left Wall Street behind to move into the staffing/recruiting industry.

In late 2007, Alex started working at a global, publicly traded staffing firm in their NYC Accounting and Finance permanent placement division and stayed there through the credit crisis and ensuing recession. As NYC slowly recovered from the financial crisis in 2010, Alex joined a PE backed national staffing firm to help grow their NYC A&F presence, which he did successfully for close to a decade. Alex came to WhiteCap Search as employee #30 in October 2019 as a Senior Director in A&F Perm and has been integral to the success and growth of this practice area at the firm.


“Alex joined WhiteCap in October 2019 and has shown he is an extremely valuable member to the Accounting and Finance Permanent Division from day one. He brings an impressive work ethic, team first mindset and intelligent sales strategy, all with a lighthearted sense of humor to our team. He consistently has high-caliber production and utilizes his long-standing relationships within an extensive network to help drive new client relationships as well.  Alex exemplifies what we’re all about here at WhiteCap – unmatched professional service with a personal touch. We’re thankful to have him as part of our Accounting and Finance team and are looking forward to another amazing year for him!” – Shawn Gorinson, Senior Managing Director, Recruitment – Accounting & Finance
