Doug Seville

Doug Seville is the co-founder of DSML Executive Search in Chicago.  DSML Executive Search is a retained search firm that specializes in recruiting for the US subsidiaries of European companies.

Doug has more than twenty years’ experience in the recruitment of senior level executives, in the areas of General Management, Sales Management, Human Resources, Finance and Accounting, as well as other operational functions.

Originally from Canada, Doug was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.  After obtaining his degree from York University, Doug began his career in Human Resources with Allstate Insurance.   He later joined The Hudson’s Bay Company as Director Human Resources and subsequently furthered his management career with Canadian Piping in South West Ontario.

Geographic exposure to the Detroit marketplace later provided Doug extensive consulting opportunities in the United States, including several Project Manager positions within General Motors.  

With Chicago as his new home, in 2004 Doug re-established his practice as an independent Executive Search Consultant – an area where he is both skilled and passionate.  In 2007 he, and his business partner Myriam Le Cannellier, formed DSML Executive Search. 

Doug is also an avid runner and has completed 35 marathons. In 2008 he created “City Striders”, a Chicago based running club providing structure for sheltered men and women to set new goals, create new possibilities, and discard limitations.  In 2010 City Striders merged with the Back on My Feet organization, where Doug continues to volunteer as a Team Leader.
