About Us


Timothy L. Donohue, President

Timothy Donohue grew up in a small rural town in Iowa. For college, Timothy received his BA from Wartburg College. He then moved to St. Louis and has lived there since with his wife and three children. His wife, Cait Donohue, is a successful residential realtor in the St. Louis area. His daughter Rose lives in Atlanta and is currently a doctoral student in clinical psychology. His other daughter Bridget lives in the Chicago area and is the Vice President of Donohue & Associates/OBGYN Search working alongside him. His son Connor recently moved back to the St. Louis area from California and is finishing his college studies there.

Timothy started his career with a national physician recruiting firm where he was a two time recruiter of the year and still owns company placement records and was promoted to Regional Vice President-West region before he was recruited to head a new recruiting company and helped develop a nationally recognized database company.

In 1992, Timothy started Donohue & Associates/OBGYN Search to focus on Women’s Healthcare Recruitment and has built a strong reputation as the leader in the specialized field. His clients were so pleased with the candidates he presented and placed for them in the Women’s Healthcare sector that early on in his career they asked him to help them recruit for their other openings in all other medical specialties, which is when he started Donohue & Associates. Donohue & Associates recruits candidates for all physician and mid-level specialties. He has worked in both rural and urban settings and in hospital employed, private and academic settings. Having grown up in rural Iowa and now having lived in St. Louis for over 36 years, Timothy is very comfortable working in both rural and urban settings.
