About Search Services

About Search Services.pdf
Search Services was founded in 2000 by Heather and Tony Gray, and continues to be one of the leading employment agencies in Houston today. Heather was a thriving recruiter for a large national firm. Tony successfully launched a technology startup. Both worked in the audit practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

This combined breadth and depth of experience led them to start a recruiting firm focused on accounting and finance. They soon added IT recruiting with the help of business partner David Young, who had a technology consulting background at Ernst & Young. Quickly thereafter, industry veteran Denise Madrid joined Search Services, leading the office administrative division. These four partners manage a team of 20 recruiters in three divisions.  All divisions include both staffing and recruiting services.


Recognizing that human capital is a more critical asset than financial capital, Search Services’ mission is to become an indispensable partner to our customers by helping them fulfill their strategic goals. To achieve this, we seek to build our relationships on sound, professional judgment, effective communication, and a commitment to excellence in our own employees.
