Our leadership team is comprised of former HR executives from the world’s best HR shops, such as Pepsi, GE, Merrill-Lynch, Raytheon, Progressive Insurance, and others. They came together to create a far superior executive search experience after realizing that many human resources recruiting agencies weren’t meeting the needs of the client and that a human resources headhunter might not be sufficient in many instances.

Our founders, Tom and Paula Christopher saw an opportunity to do executive HR search differently. They passionately believed in creating a unique boutique HR executive recruiting firm led by former HR practitioners and staffed by highly trained search professionals, that employ proprietary systems, tools, and processes when conducting HR-only searches. It was for that reason that TCG was born. As recruiters for HR professionals and recruiters for HR jobs, the experts at TCG believe in breaking the mold and doing things differently so that you can get the results you want. Unlike other human resource executive search firms, we are able to assume the unique positions of our clients and candidates by looking at opportunities through their lenses. In doing so, we are able to provide expert guidance, counsel and assessments to candidates and clients alike. For us, it is more than simply filling a role quickly with exceptional talent. It is finishing a search and having the candidates and client love the experience and look forward to doing it again. The vast majority of our clients are former TCG candidates. Our work becomes fundamentally different from other human resource executive recruiting firms.
