Douglas Viney, CEO and Founder

The firm was founded in Miami, Florida by Doug Viney in 2014 and has been recognized as one of the Top Staffing Agencies and Fastest Growing by the South Florida Business Journal. Doug’s passion for recruitment took root in the United Kingdom in 2004. In 2009, he took a leave to explore parts unknown (Asia, Australia, South America, Canada), which included a final stop in Miami.

He immediately fell in love (and found love in) the Magic City. He went on to launch a global franchise in South Florida in 2013 and found immediate success staffing for a client with whom he eventually would partner to open Benjamin Douglas in 2015.

Ultimately, Doug bought out the original partner in 2018, taking the reins fully on his own. In April 2019, South Florida Business Journal named Benjamin Douglas a “Top 25 Temporary Personnel & Staffing Agency” with Viney heralded as a “Person on the move”.


As Doug can attest to; “the lifeblood of any company in any industry is its human capital. It’s placing the most impressive candidates into the most appropriate roles that’s going to equate for the growth and success of a company’s product or service.

My team knows there are no shortcuts to successful staffing – we have gathered our insight, contacts, and resources by digging, scratching, and clawing to connect with South Florida’s finest”. As a small firm developing its brand, Benjamin Douglas is committed to using the best practices Doug has gleaned from his 15 years of experience finding and placing talent all over the globe. Key to this is avoiding the tactics that create a bad reputation for many recruitment firms.

This is accomplished by always operating transparently, making the engagement experience as frictionless as possible, approaching each deal from a consultative v. transactional approach, and instilling a hustle mentality in his team.

The result: South Florida’s No. 12 fastest-growing company (under $25 million).

“To rank as the 12th fastest-growing private company in the competitive marketplace that is South Florida is all the more prideful when you realize we are a six-person outfit – the leanest of all of our ‘Fast 50’- honored siblings.”

At Benjamin Douglas, we are passionate about finding the right talent and fit for positions within organizations ranging from start-ups to FTSE 100. We offer expert consultancy in permanent and contract recruitment and help our client partners achieve their business goals by finding highly qualified candidates to fill their priority needs.
