About HPG Executive Recruiting

HPG Executive Recruiting was established in 1999 from offices in Southern California and Chicago, Illinois. Under the leadership of our founder, Gary Hamm, it wasn’t long before HPG became one of the country’s premier healthcare executive search firms. Today, from offices in Orange County, California, our territory stretches nationally, and our search expertise coverages positions within healthcare on the provider side, as well as manufacturing and technology.

Proudly tight-knit

HPG is a family-run boutique firm and we’ve worked hard to keep it that way. We like being able to offer our rich experience at a more competitive value and with more freedom to explore a wider pool of highly-qualified candidates. Our client partners like that too. Call it, our recipe for your success.

Unique insight into the talent network

We’re networked and connected to a relevant and diverse talent pool in local, regional, and national markets, and we stay with each candidate through the entire search and placement process, from initiation to placement.

HPG's process of Quality Placement
