DHR International, Inc. was founded in January 1989 with the leadership of David H. Hoffmann, a world-renowned executive recruiter. The company was established with the acquisition of Boyden International's Chicago and Upper Montclair, New Jersey offices. DHR corporate headquarters was formed, and still remains, in Chicago.
David's vision for the company was to provide clients with the resources and reach of a large firm, but the personal touch and partnership achieved in boutique firms. To further this vision, offices were rapidly opened in all major cities throughout the United States. DHR continued on its growth pattern and now has over 40 offices throughout the nation, and an extensive international network. DHR is known as the fastest growing firm in the industry.
In November 2001, DHR acquired the assets of Spherion Corporation's (NYSE: SFN) StratfordGroup. StratfordGroup served as the global retained search subsidiary of Spherion and was ranked the 13th largest executive search firm in the U.S.
From the time of inception to the present, DHR has been guided by its founding principles. Foremost, the Consultants of DHR hold the highest of ethical standards, along with an unsurpassable level of personal service, strong dedication to quality, and our unique ‘value-added' approach. This philosophy and methodology is consistently demonstrated in DHR's thorough and unparalleled researching capability, the teamwork on every assignment, and the timeliness with which we complete our assignments.
As of April 2003, DHR is ranked the fifth largest search firm in the U.S. and third in Chicago. It is among the top 10 in world revenue, and number one in office location and geographic coverage. – less–ZoomInfo
