Steve Enochs, CEO and President

Steve founded Buckman Enochs Coss and Associates in 1979 after a successful career in medical sales management. He is one of the few owners of a search enterprise who has viewed the employment business from the hiring side of the equation. This perspective has enabled our company to grow around the understanding that the hiring manager and the hiring organization are our customers, and that we will do whatever it takes to assist them in the talent acquisition process.

Steve was a pioneer in initiating national sales force expansions, and many of the proven principles our company adheres to today were formulated under his leadership. He works only on exclusive assignments with emerging pharmaceutical and medical companies. More than 70 percent of the searches he spearheads for these firms involve vice president- or director-level positions.

Steve has served on the boards of numerous industry organizations and has been instrumental in helping start-up companies grow into national leaders. He holds a degree in Business Administration from Indiana University.
