Great history. Even better present.

Our Mission

Since opening our doors in 1980, Smith Hanley’s mission has always been to concentrate on select areas where our depth and breadth of knowledge, clients, and candidates have far reach and long-term success. We continue to dedicate ourselves to knowing these industries in the latest markets as we achieve the perfect fit between clients and candidates from an initial communication to a successful outcome for all parties.

Through this personal understanding of your long-term career path combined with our knowledge and track record in your field, we can assure that you – and your resume – are presented in an ethical and authentic way to maximize your potential earnings and exceed your career satisfaction.

To Our Clients

As longtime established experts in your field, we always learn as much as possible about your specific and current business needs while anticipating future trends in your industry so we can match top-notch candidates with your high expectations, position requirements, and your company’s culture. We value an ethical, professional process which involves an educated and established knowledge of your company regardless of size. At Smith Hanley, we can address your recruiting needs whether they entail a single position or an entire elite team of qualified candidates.
