Yahoo Finance

(Houston, TX – June 1, 2011) – Murray Resources, a leading recruiting and staffing firm based in Houston, Texas, today announced that it is expanding its professional recruiting division to address increased client demand for professional and management talent.

Murray Resources’ professional division was originally launched in 2000 to serve client companies seeking executive and management talent. Today, the division serves a broad base of industries in the accounting, engineering, finance, human resources, marketing, operations, and sales fields. The announcement does not affect the firm’s staffing and temporary business – the company will continue to manage temporary, temp-to-hire, contract, payroll, and direct hire administrative/clerical services for its clients.

As part of the expansion, the company announced that Linda Cooper, an eight-year veteran of Murray Resources, will head the professional division.

“Linda’s rise from Placement Consultant to Professional Division Recruiter is a direct result of her tireless work ethic and the exceptional relationships she has built on both the client and the candidate sides. Linda has already placed countless qualified professionals at leading companies across the Houston area – we are excited about her continued growth in this role,” said Marsha Murray, President of Murray Resources.

Murray Resources, originally founded as a home-based business in 1988, has developed a base of over 750 clients and 3,000 candidates. In a study commissioned by the firm, Murray Resources’ clients reported a 95 percent match satisfaction rate versus an industry rate of between 50 and 60 percent. The company was named a “Best Places to Work” by the Houston Business Journal in 2008 and the #1 Fastest Growing Woman Owned Business in the Personnel Category, in the 2007 annual Houston Business Journal awards.
