Houston’s The Daniel Group Acquired by Hire Dynamics, Bringing Fresh Resources and Experience to Meet Jobs Challenges Across the South
Atlanta-based commercial staffing company expands its footprint into booming Texas markets with 22 branches across state
HOUSTON – October 28, 2021 – Award-winning Houston-based staffing company The Daniel Group was acquired by Atlanta-based Hire Dynamics in a private deal closed October 27th. The combined companies aim to drive growth in the state’s growing economy while bringing new resources and proven best practices to help resolve current challenges in matching employer and talent expectations.
The Daniel Group President & CEO Jarrod Daniel reflects, “When my father founded the company in 1980, the recruiting process and technology was a whole different world. Yet the foundation he laid in focusing on the best employee, talent and customer experience, allowed it to flourish, placing nearly 85,000 Texans into jobs over the decades. Hire Dynamics shares a similar culture, and I look forward to seeing them carry the torch forward.”
Both The Daniel Group and Hire Dynamics foster a “Best Places to Work” culture (Hire Dynamics has won 39 titles over its 20 years). Hire Dynamics ranks among the top 1% of more than 22,000 U.S. staffing companies as winner of ClearlyRated’s “Best of Staffing for Client & Talent Satisfaction” for 12 consecutive years.
The Daniel Group’s nine Texas offices now join Hire Dynamics’ branches, bringing the total to 22 in the state and 69 across the South. This is Hire Dynamics’ third expansion in Texas in 2021. The company currently has Texas offices in Amarillo, Arlington, Baytown, Brownsville, Dallas, Fort Worth, Harlingen, Irving, Lewisville, Lubbock, McAllen, San Antonio and Tyler.
The Daniel Group will continue to fill engineering roles in the power industry and to join in serving industries Hire Dynamics also serves, including manufacturing, logistics, e-commerce, contact center and office support.
Hire Dynamics CEO Billy Milam says, “Texas’ huge economy is a natural place for us to continue to expand our service to employers and talent across the South. We bring readiness to learn along with a proven record of innovation that finds new ways to solve evolving challenges in the job market. As we partner with The Daniel Group in Texas, we look forward to sharing resources, technology and creative problem solving for clients and candidates.”
Over 2020 and 2021, Hire Dynamics rolled out many such innovations, including socially distant recruiting with drive-through job fairs that brought open roles to candidates at shopping centers. They launched HirePalooza, a semi-annual, six-state event that aims to fill thousands of jobs in a two-day period. Their proprietary digital tools like the Work4HD app, helped speed the process of getting the word out about job openings, recruiting, interviewing and onboarding talent quickly.
Hire Dynamics Vice President Lisa Cooney, who will lead Hire Dynamics’ Texas team from the Dallas office, says, “I see this as the perfect marriage of Texas know-how and two companies who share a passion for people-first service.” Cooney will oversee the company’s Texas offices, aiming to ensure a seamless transition of employees and operations and build winning strategies to serve customers across the state.
Hire Dynamics is owned by MSouth Equity Partners, a leading Southeast private equity company headquartered in Atlanta.
