Arthur is the firm's Founder and Managing
Principal. He has devoted the greater part of his
professional career to serving the needs of the
Financial Services community. During his career in the
securities industry, he held positions with regional and
Fortune 200 “Wall Street” firms as stock broker, trader,
and compliance manager. His NASD licenses, including the
series 7 and 24, were maintained with distinction
throughout his career.
While still in the securities industry, Arthur had
the opportunity to create two successful businesses, in
the fields of advertising and product distribution. The
thrill and challenge of creating a new enterprise
sparked his entrepreneurial passion and inspired him to
leave the “corporate” world. In 1999, Arthur entered the
executive search arena, and in 2004 he led a successful
management buy-out, resulting in the creation of
Strategic Alliance Group, LLC, a national executive
search firm. The success of the executive search firm
prompted him to create Strategic Capital Advisors, LLC,
a very successful Mergers & Acquisition firm, thereby
fulfilling his vision of providing a “full-service firm”
for his clients.
For the past seventeen years, Arthur has served in the
U.S. Naval Reserves. In response to September 11th, his
unit was called to active duty. Under Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Noble Eagle, Arthur was separated
from his wife and three children for close to a year.
Today, Arthur serves as the Executive officer of a 200+
member unit in Miami, Florida.
Arthur is Chairman of the Arthur J. Drago Foundation,
which contributes time and money to worthwhile charities
around the world. Since the inception of SAG & SCA, a
portion of every dollar earned by these firms has been
donated to worthy causes.
Arthur also serves as Vice President of the First Class
Association, a leadership group in the U.S. Naval
Reserves. He is Chairman of “Directions,” a program he
designed and created to help young children build
self-esteem through group discussions and motivational
exercises. On a personal note, Arthur has a passion for
boating, fishing, and scuba diving. He coaches little
league baseball and soccer, where he teaches kids that
believing you can do it is 50% of the game.
