As a University of Illinois finance and management undergrad, Elias' first job was, fittingly, at a commodities brokerage firm. However, when Elias realized that sales wasn't his true calling, he took notice of a Spencer Stuart entry-level Accountant role and curiously applied. Successfully, Elias was warmly welcomed into its wonderful culture—and now celebrates over eighteen years of a fantastic ride.
Up and out early to catch Spencer Stuart Office and Regional Managers and members of his team stationed in multiple time zones, Elias makes early morning phone calls in order to communicate financial information requests. Elias consistently checks messages and provides supportive consultations tools—interacting with colleagues in the office to stay updated and available.
