January 20, 2016 – Executive search and consulting firm The Newport Group has opened a new office in Wichita Falls, Texas. The location will serve to augment the recruiting and consulting efforts of the firm’s Texas operations, while providing additional resources to its offices across the country.
Recently promoted vice president Brad Ellis will be charged with managing the day-to-day operations at the new location. He joined Newport Group with over 15 years’ experience in recruiting for the healthcare and oil & gas industries, among others.
The firm plans to hire additional recruiters to the new location in coming months. “We’re excited to be growing at such a fast rate,” said John Fitzpatrick, Newport Group president. “Our Wichita Falls location combined with the recent Orange County opening is a testament to the hard work and commitment our team puts in every day.”
This new office launch follows Newport Group’s opening of a Laguna Hills, California office this past October. Executive vice president, Tom Chaparro, leads that effort. He is an executive search professional with 20 years’ experience in recruiting for the real estate and oil and gas industries, among others.
Established in 1995, The Newport Group is an executive search and consulting firm specializing in the recruitment and placement of senior and technical management positions within the oil & gas, life sciences, real estate development, construction, environmental engineering, and asset management industries. Current search activity includes C-level executives, vice president, director and general management level positions as well as other key contributor roles.
