Thanks for stopping by to learn a bit more about me and our team!  I’m Teresa Murphey and I’m the founder and President of Hire Ventures, Inc. I’m an entrepreneur at heart and absolutely love working with other entrepreneurs and small business owners to simplify all things HR and Recruiting!

Back in 2001 when I started Hire Ventures, I recognized the need for small companies to have expert level HR and Recruiting services when they need it, without paying the high salary for a full-time HR resource or high dollar contingency recruiting fees.  I established Hire Ventures in 2001 to fill this need, providing expert level on-demand HR and Recruiting services to small, growing companies, making them more strategic, effective and successful.

Teresa earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management with a focus in Human Resources from Montana State University, and a Professional Human Resources (PHR) certificate from the Society of Human Resource Management.  She is actively involved in a variety of Professional Human Resource, Technology and Entrepreneurial groups in Atlanta as well as in her local church and community. is also a member of Entrepreneurs’ Organization International

I have been married for 15 years to my husband Gregg, we have two daughters who are 8 and 13 and we live in a wonderfully diverse community in Brookhaven, GA.  I love to camp (by camp I mean glamp in a camper!) which brings me back to my Montana roots and keeps me grounded.  I love to spend time with family and friends, enjoy good coffee, really good wine and everything in between!

Lead Talent Consultant: Robin Einarson

IMG_0207I am Robin Einarson and I am the Lead Talent Consultant at Hire Venture, Inc. After starting my career in the accounting field, I quickly learned that I was not where I was meant to be. When an opportunity to move into recruiting came up I jumped at the chance! I love people and working with hiring managers and candidates to understand their needs and interests was a natural fit for me.

Robin earned a BS degree in Accounting from Southeastern Louisiana University. Robin has experience successfully recruiting for a variety of different industries, as well as a broad range in types of positions. Robin has had a great deal of experience working with hiring managers on newly created positions and navigating through the process of what is truly needed to make that role a successful addition to their team.

I have been married to my husband Brad for 15 years and we have an 12-year-old son and a 8-year-old daughter. We live in Cumming, GA currently but we have made our rounds in the Atlanta area, having lived in Vinings, Dunwoody, and the Emory area as well. We love traveling as much as we can, watching and attending sporting events of all kinds, spending time with our family and friends, and being involved with our church and school communities.

Talent Consultant:  Kimberly McDaniel

My name is Kimberly McDaniel and I am a Talent Consultant with Hire Ventures, Inc. I am a huge people person and spent several years in sales and business development until a serendipitous encounter inspired me to get into recruiting, and I love it! I have experience with full life-cycle recruiting from both agency as well as in-house corporate recruiting and have recruited IT, Engineering, Accounting & Finance, Legal, Sales, Hospitality and Administrative and C-Level Executives.

There is nothing greater than finding smart people to do awesome things!  I always strive to bring 100% to the work that I do, and my goal as a recruiter is to build strong, long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with candidates and clients. I take pride in ensuring hires are a strong match for long term success – I’m interested in finding people careers rather than simply jobs.

I grew up in small-town San Angelo, TX and after college, I quickly moved to the big city of Dallas, TX where I met my husband, John. We have a 9-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son and are now settled and living in beautiful McKinney, TX.

Talent Consultant:  Lily Rincon

My name is Lily Rincon and I am a Talent Consultant at Hire Ventures, Inc. I began my career as an Account Executive working closely with clients nationwide in various industries. I was recruited into my first recruiting role in 2012, where I was able to partner with clients and work with candidates finding the right match for both. The VP I worked for in California once told our team, “you will either love recruiting or you won’t”. I knew right away that I loved it and that I had found the perfect career for myself!

I have since worked in both agency and corporate positions recruiting for companies in the Technology, Manufacturing, Non-Profit, and Accounting industries. I have experience partnering with hiring managers to fill both high-volume positions to build entire sales teams and also more operational and executive-level positions. I truly enjoy working with hiring managers to navigate the entire screening and hiring process to find the right fit for their company.

My husband, Kris, and I have been married for four years, have a three-year-old daughter, and a baby boy. I am from Knoxville, but together we have lived in Los Angeles, Raleigh and are now enjoying making our home here in Atlanta.

We really enjoy exploring the city, spending time outdoors, sporting events, and being with friends and family whenever possible.
