Founded by Dan Portes in 1989, the Management Resource Group, Ltd (MRG) began as a human resource management consulting business in Davenport, Iowa. Early on, Dan leveraged his management experience as a retail business owner to build the firm’s retained search services, helping clients attract and retain executive talent.
Today, MRG has evolved into a full-scale Talent Management consulting firm, providing core strategic services across the areas of retained search, assessments, coaching, and career transition as well as a variety of specialized consulting services. The firm includes a diverse group of individuals with a rich mix of business, education and life experiences serving clients in the Midwest, from coast to coast as well as internationally in the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Australia, France, Brazil, Denmark, and Spain.
MRG is as an active partner-owner in Career Partners International LLC (CPI), a privately-owned global leader in Talent Management consulting services. Investment and membership in CPI’s elite alliance has contributed to MRG’s growth and success. With more than 200 offices in over 35 countries around the globe, MRG offers services as a local provider with a truly global reach.
In 1998, MRG continued to grow, opening a second office to serve the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor market. Today, MRG’s Hiawatha office provides full-scale Talent Management services with dedicated resources.
