Hobson Associates

Hobson Associates was founded by an engineer in 1973, so our technical roots run deep. Over the years, we’ve built an industrial & manufacturing network that is unrivaled in both depth and breadth of talent.

Our team efforts are focused in three main segments. The Executive Generalist group focuses on the C-Suite, filling mission critical positions where our client’s success and at times, survival, is at stake. The Sales and Marketing group fills searches across a broad range of technologies and products. From customer service/technical support to VP-level, the candidates we’ve placed have generated hundreds of millions of revenue dollars for our clients. Our Technical group effectively handles an enormously diverse range of searches in engineering, operations, quality, supply chain and logistics as well as lean/continuous improvement.

Hobson has become a one-stop shop for clients searching for critical talent at all levels and across all areas of functional expertise. Our clients range in size from start-ups to Fortune 1000, and we’ve filled searches globally. Our vast network enables us to identify, assess and deliver top talent with an average turn-around time of just over 10 weeks.
