The Vertek Story

The Vertek Story
Founder and President – Brian Murphy 

Brian’s background in the IT staffing industry started in 2001 in Raleigh, NC. As his career progressed from Technical Recruiter to Account Management to VP of Staffing Services, his network of clients and reputation took off as well. He was recruited by a company to move to Nashville and start a staffing division for a company based out of Atlanta. Brian happily accepted and relocated to the Nashville area with his wife, Dana. He started to build a home and soon Brian and Dana were expecting their first child.  Eight months after relocating to Nashville, in the process of building a new house and with a pregnant wife, Brian received a call from his boss in Atlanta that he had just sold the company, leaving him without a job.

Brian could have responded in a number of ways. He chose the path less traveled and decided to start his own company at the end of 2006, at the beginning of the recession. Brian is a strong believer that things happen for a reason and within four weeks of one door being closed in his face, he opened the door to his next opportunity and founded Vertek Solutions.

As we started out in 2007, Brian was committed to building a boutique staffing firm and brand in the marketplace by putting the focus where it should be, on people.
