Our Story

District Partners was founded in 2019 by Josh Fisher. After 10+ years of recruiting professionals for a large staffing agency, Josh saw the need for a more hands-on and bespoke recruitment approach to find the optimal fit, not the most expedient, for clients and candidates. Josh has spent most of his career recruiting professionals for a wide range of sectors, from early stage start-ups to Fortune 50 companies. Before leaving the staffing agency world, Josh was a Senior Vice President at a regional-based firm that expanded nationally during his tenure, overseeing teams in Washington, D.C., Bethesda, MD and Philadelphia, PA.

In addition to premier recruiting experience, Josh has worked in global investments/banking, health care, and finance and accounting, while bringing in depth cross-sectoral relationships to his networks.

Josh is also a key member of the executive team for SCL Consulting, which is an outsourced CFO Services/Accounting Firm in D.C. with a national footprint. He is responsible for the firm’s corporate development strategy, seeking out and establishing key partnerships, driving investment activities, originating and expanding SCL’s relationships with business owners, and internal recruiting.

Josh prides himself on being a trusted adviser to the candidates he works with and the clients he partners with. He has been recognized for his keen understanding of the many elements that make a successful hire. He is incredibly passionate about the industry and unwavering in his commitment to improve the experiences of industry professionals and recruits. By combining a proven track record with his highly collaborative approach and focus on long term partnerships with both clients and candidates alike, Josh has built a team with District Partners that is uniquely positioned to change the experience of working with head hunters.
