2012: Mark Diamond, Principal, Recruiter, Advantage Talent, Alpharetta, Ga.
NOW: Diamond did put SED behind him. He settled the lawsuit for $2.1 million in 2008 and now heads Advatange Talent, an executive placement firm that specializes in the finance, banking and accounting vertical markets, that he started in 2006.
"I've been focused on my business. I don't think about the past. I look forward," Diamond said. "I like it a lot. It's a great business. No two conversations are the same, no two searches are the same."
