Chicago HR Executive Search
and Advisory



Top HR Executive Search Firms: Chicago

As the largest city in the Midwest U.S., Chicago has a booming market for manufacturing, printing, procurement, transportation and insurance. Its central location makes it a great place for physical product development, manufacturing, and supply chain companies. Key businesses include United Airlines, Caterpillar, Walgreens, State Farm, Tenneco, Allstate, AbbVie, and Dover Corporation (including some of our client companies). For HR executive search firms Chicago’s market includes many companies across industries seeking People/HR leadership to help grow and develop a great culture.

Over the past decade, tens of thousands of jobs have been added yearly, working the city’s year-to-year job growth out to be 1.8%. Unlike New York or Silicon Valley, Chicago offers a warm, friendly community, as well as a dynamic city life without the expensive price tag. Additionally, with two international airports and lots of easy-to-navigate transportation systems, we see more and more businesses and candidates make their way to the Windy City.

The greater Chicago metropolitan area stretches from Aurora to Naperville to Lisle to Downers Grove, with the largest growth in Woodstock in recent years. With Chicago’s relative distance from both the east and west coast, diverse talent has historically been available, with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and University of Wisconsin-Madison within a little over a two-hour drive from the city.
