The HT Group has over 10 years of national and Texas recruiting expertise. Each and every seasoned recruiter knows their specialty inside-out whether it’s traditional staffing in the local market, nationwide executive search, technical contract & direct hiring, or a specific niche such as recruiting electrical engineers in the semiconductor industry. The HT Group offers a candidate pool swimming with the best talent to fit a client’s specific requirements. Mark Turpin and Jim Gilliam began The HT Group (then HT Staffing) in 2001. They wanted to use their knowledge and experience in the industry to create a different kind of staffing company — one with a unique focus on building long-term client relationships and a refreshingly respectful approach to interacting with candidates.Together with Managing Partner Nad Elias, Turpin and Gilliam have established a company that is committed to raising the bar with integrity-first human capital solutions. The firm serves Central Texas staffing needs through its Austin office and Southeast Texas through its Beaumont, Orange and Port Arthur offices. Each of office is managed by an owner/partner.
