Our Story:

DCA is an IT consulting and staffing firm helping successful companies and healthcare facilities attain their IT business objectives. However, it really started over 33 years ago when Sheldon Myeroff had a vision to start an organization that could bring a high quality service to the local employment market.

In 1983, Shel opened the doors of a company he named Direct Recruiters, Inc., originally known as an employment agency for Cleveland, Ohio. Over time, Direct Recruiters, Inc. evolved into a top executive recruitment firm for North America complete with an experienced team of Recruiters, Account Executives and Researchers that is extremely successful to this day.  But then a new idea hit. In 2011, Shel joined forces with his Managing Partners and IT experts: Frank Myeroff, Dan Charney and Mike Silverstein to form a partnership that provides a wide variety of IT consulting and staffing solutions for business organizations and healthcare facilities across the US. Together they envisioned a consulting and staffing firm that would deliver a higher level of service than those already in this market. Direct Consulting Associates (DCA) was born. And since that historic day, we’ve made an impact. We help clients achieve their talent and project initiatives through our network of experienced IT consultants and professionals who want to enhance their careers.

“DCA is indeed a class organization. I joined DCA about 6 months ago as a consultant. The initial interviews and discussions with the client were very thorough, and I knew what was expected once I made it on site, and regular contact was made with me by DCA, which made me feel like I was always thought of. I have also been pleased and impressed with Frank and Charles. Their professionalism is second to none, and I hope to continue our relationship into the future. Additionally, my expenses and pay are always there each week waiting for me in my checking account.” - J.T., Consultant

“Working with DCA as a consultant was a very satisfying experience. Their focus on the client-consultant relationship, needs and satisfaction means less administrative tasks, allowing me to direct 99.99% of my attention towards the client’s tasks. The weekly T/E reporting is one of the easiest processes I’ve encountered and they’re always available to assist with concerns and/or issues when needed, while not interfering when they’re not needed. I’d happily take another engagement through DCA in the future.” – M.K., Epic Consultant

“I was looking for an opportunity to work remotely instead of on the road every week. DCA has provided the opportunity to work from home and allow me to spend more time with family in the evenings.” – J.H., Consultant

“As a consultant with Direct Consulting Associates I was pleased with the level of service, especially with the initial stages of hiring. They took the time to understand my background and interests to ensure I was paired with the best client, doing what I do best. They were very open with the process (during client interviews), and kept me well informed of the status with the client site. Once selected by the client, they represented me well in negotiating my start date, and made regular contact with me to ensure I was comfortable. In addition, they expressed genuine concern when matters need to be addressed. Loved getting paid weekly!” – S.M., Epic Consultant

“I have very happily been working with DCA as a consultant for over a year now and hope to continue this relationship far into the future. They have allowed me to keep my focus on the customer and their needs without having to spend hardly any time on administrative needs such as time and expense reporting. All of the staff at DCA have been very easy to work with. They like to maintain a good relationship with their customers without getting in the way of the client-consultant relationship. As stated before, I hope to continue working with Direct Consulting Associates far into the future.” – W.B., Epic Consultant
