Ilya Talman

Even while he was a student at the University of Chicago launching software businesses, Ilya Talman had a fascination with the union of technology and recruiting. So it was hardly a surprise that he would later found Roy Talman & Associates in 1982 as a recruitment firm focused on the technology and financial trading industries. In both the Chicago and New York marketplaces, Ilya has built a stellar reputation for Roy Talman as a firm that only presents the very best talent to employers in these fields.

“Ilya is the premier talent scout in the Chicago financial services industry. He excels in matching exceptionally talented people in uniquely challenging roles. I had the good fortune to work with Ilya to meet staffing requirements for both UBS and Bank of America and he routinely exceeded expectations.”

“Ilya is one of the best recruiters in the country. He is smart, but more importantly, he attracts and keeps a top-notch staff. Roy Talman is one of the best IT recruiters around. I have seen that often merely being presented by them states volumes about you as a candidate.”
