You don’t last more than two decades in any industry by accident. Our team thrives when it comes to providing our clients with adaptable, proactive recruiting solutions for both employers and job seekers.

Our Story

It takes complicated situations for innovators to come up with bold solutions. Our story is no different. Founded by our CEO Bryan Olson at the height of an economic downturn, Controller’s Group, Inc. has stood for more than two decades as a symbol for what people can accomplish in difficult situations. Starting out as an auditor (giving him the experience needed to thrive when it comes to helping those with accounting and finance backgrounds), Bryan started CGI because he had a strong feel for the Bay Area job market. He wanted to help others find situations that aligned with their skill set, and help employers find candidates who could provide tangible growth and actionable results. 

Bryan knew the approach he wanted to take—a small, dedicated team (refusing the opportunity to expand beyond our means in years to come) was going to be what set CGI apart from massive, nationwide recruiting companies. With a more centralized focus, he knew that CGI would be able to affect people on a profound level, giving candidates and employers alike the guidance they needed and the level of customer service that they deserved.
