This Is the third consecutive year FGP has been named to the list, and the first time being recognized as a Top 50 firm in both categories. FGP is one of 15 firms nationally to be recognized in the Top 50 in both categories, a testament to their caliber of expertise across the talent platform.

“This is a great example that it takes great people to build great companies starting with the team at FGP,” said John Uprichard, FGP President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being independently nominated and recognized by our clients and candidates as a Top 50 firm for both Executive and Professional Recruitment is an incredible honor for our brand and FGP family.”

Respondents nominated up to 10 recruiting firms in two separate categories: Executive Search, comprised of the top 200 firms specializing in filling positions with salaries of $100,000 or more, and Professional Search, comprised of the top 250 firms specializing in positions with salaries under $100,000. More than 17,000 nominations were received, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest. Firms were not allowed to nominate themselves.

In 2019, Find Great People was also honored as the 15th Best Place to Work in South Carolina, marking the ninth time the firm has made the prestigious statewide list.
