At Alpine Management Group, we believe that the most effective way to achieve success for our clients is by taking a personal and client-centric approach. We are able to streamline the hiring process, helping to match the best individual to the right company, year-after-year.

We know that when it comes to hiring, every aspect matters. Alpine Management Group looks beyond the resume, to find people who are not only qualified on paper, but are successful in their day-to-day work processes.

Each one of our talent acquisition managers invests the time necessary to get to know their recruit, what your ideal employment scenario looks like, what works for you and what doesn’t. This results-driven process has helped us cultivate positive relationships with both the companies we work with and the individuals we find career opportunities for.

Our approach is one-of-a-kind and we invite you to explore the Alpine Process and contact us with any questions.

Mark Jordan


A financial industry veteran with 20 years of experience in sales, wealth management and financial consulting, Mark Jordan founded both Alpine Management Group, LLC and Alpine Recruiters, LLC in 2014 to expand on his true passion: helping financial professionals take the next step in their career. Mark’s vision for Alpine Recruiters has been to focus on candidates’ long-term goals and career growth, instead of chasing short-term profits and quick placements.

It didn’t take long for the Alpine approach to pay off. In 2015, Alpine Recruiters placed dozens of licensed bankers and financial advisors at some of the most respected banks and firms in the country, including CitiGroup, Santander, UBS and Merrill Lynch.

In the 15 years prior to founding Alpine Recruiters, Mark held several management and financial advisor positions at institutions such as Smith Barney, Morgan Stanley and BB&T.
In 2008, Mark was recruited by Smith Barney to enter into their management program, and began a successful tenure as Sales Manager in their Baltimore branch. Smith Barney is where Mark first discovered his passion for management and career guidance, after successfully recruiting several teams of Financial Advisors totaling more than $420 million in Assets Under Management, while managing more than 100 Financial Advisors and support staff.

During the Morgan Stanley merger in 2009, Mark was transferred to the Florham Park, New Jersey branch as a Complex Coach responsible for recruiting, licensing and training new and existing Financial Advisors. With Morgan Stanley, Mark recruited 16 Financial Advisors and completed his recruiting contract in 8 months. In 2012 Mark was recruited to manage a new division for Citi Bank called the Investment Consultant Division where he recruited and managed 35 bank based advisors and partnered with 50 licensed bankers.

Mark has a BBA with a major in Finance from Georgia State University and has held FINRA Licenses 7, 63, 65, 9 and 10 along with Life and Health.
