David N. Youdovin

The loss of David’s father at a young age made him understand the importance of domestic help early on. When he was four years old, David’s mother enrolled in graduate school and enlisted the services of an extraordinary Colombian woman who worked with David’s family for years and played an instrumental role in shaping David into the person he is today. David understands that while personal staff is a luxury, it is also a necessity, and finding the perfect hire is invaluable.

By his twenty-first birthday, David was successfully producing events in one of New York City’s largest nightclubs and managing a four-star restaurant. He went on to work as a trader and trading floor manager on Wall Street before returning to hospitality in 2005.

David’s return to the service industry happened by chance when a friend asked him to assist in the planning of a Fourth of July party at a private Hamptons estate. A weekend’s worth of work became a new career when the party’s host offered David a full-time position as his Butler/Estate manager. In his new role, David assisted in the day-to-day management and operation of the family’s 50-acre East Hampton estate, their six-story townhouse, and was responsible for the hiring, training, and scheduling of a large domestic staff.

It was while searching for candidates that David first discovered a serious shortage of both qualified candidates and employment agencies to represent those candidates. In 2006, David joined a New York City search firm as a recruiter and later became Vice President and Partner. After six years and hundreds of successful long-term placements within private homes, c-level offices, and major luxury brands, David decided to strike out on his own. In March of 2012, David opened the doors to his wholly owned and operated firm, Hire Society.
