Success Stories

Discover the CGI difference.
We work closely with all of our clients.

When you work with Controller’s Group, Inc., you gain so much more than a recruiter. We’re here to be your team’s partner for the long haul and help you grow in ways that are conducive to your success.

How We’ve Helped Clients Grow


Stitchfix was left with a gap in their payroll team after the departure of several tenured staff. CGI placed four candidates with the company within a two-week period, all of whom were brought on contract to be hired and converted. The payroll manager we had placed in the role was quickly promoted to Global Payroll Director, helping their team not only fill the gap but grow far beyond where they were prior to working with CGI.

Contrast Security

Contrast Security reached out to our team several years ago with a problem: their accounting team was only the newly hired CFO and no one else. The CFO needed to scale their team rapidly due to explosive growth—they were running short on time and needed to implement a plan to accommodate the sudden change. CGI has since placed their Payroll Manager, Accounts Payable Manager, Controller, and several other members of their team. The accounting team at Contrast Security is now thriving and continues to reach out with all of their ongoing hiring needs.

Find the Right Personnel

Growing your team successfully is all about identifying the ideal candidate for the role. CGI is here to help.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“I worked with Tracy and the Controller’s Group team for the past 6 years. My experience with Tracy was outstanding. Tracy has a personal approach to the needs of a candidate. She is proactive and very professional and helped me find a job during hard economic times. Controller’s Group has a great network and good relations with so many Silicon Valley companies. I always rely on Tracy to help me with my job search. Controller’s Group is one of the best recruiting firms in the Bay Area. I would highly recommend Tracy to accounting professionals who are currently looking for a new job!”

“Matt has helped me with multiple searches, ranging from Revenue Accounting Manager to Revenue Accounting Senior Analysts. He is by far one of the best recruiters that I have worked with and always has had the best candidates. He takes time to meet you in-person and stays connected. He kept me informed throughout the search and had candidates very quickly. I would definitely recommend Matt if you are hiring.”

Always Delivering Quality Results

“I can only say great things about Claire’s professionalism and tenacity to help her candidates and find what’s best for them. I worked with her for months in the current position I am in now and boy, was it a journey with moments of uncertainties. But through it all, she kept me informed, was always honest, and prioritized what I was looking for and helped me feel like I had someone looking out for me. She also knew the details, the market, and all the small things that can make a big difference when you are making such a big decision. Thanks, Claire for providing outstanding services!”

“Chi is an excellent recruiter who delivers. She’s found me two hires that’ve proven to be an excellent fit for the team. I’ve worked with other staffing agencies that have failed to send over qualified candidates but I have always been able to depend on Chi to find me the right candidate for the role I need to fill. I highly recommend working with her!”

“Bottom line: Tracy Pelley and John Richter are the best in the Bay Area: from quality of jobs they find, to follow-up, and overall attention to clients and contractors. I have spent the last 3 years with them and as a contractor I appreciate the companies I have been placed at as they were a correct fit for my background. I have converted to full-time for the company they placed me at and have them to thank! #BestintheBay”
