Celebrating 31 Years in Business


When Morgan Hunter was founded 31 years ago, we saw an opportunity to improve upon a tired business model. Instead of being a “resume clearinghouse” like all the other firms, the focus became building strong relationships with clients and job seekers. It’s these principles that have made us one of the oldest, most recognized staffing firms in Kansas City.

“We have always believed that employees are a company’s greatest asset,” Morgan Hunter President Jerry Hellebusch said. “Our goal is to make the recruitment process more humanized. I think our longevity is a testament to the fact that people appreciate personalized service.”

A Kansas City Company

Our focus has always been on our hometown — Kansas City. What began with only a few people in 1986 has grown to employ more than 50 people and resulted in countless placements throughout the Greater Kansas City metro area. Throughout our 31 years, our specialty has and always will be finding and placing top talent in Kansas City.

Building Lasting Relationships

JD Huxman, Chief Financial Officer at Morgan Hunter, attributes our success to the connections our recruiters have cultivated over the years.

“At the core of Morgan Hunter is our personal relationships with clients and candidates,” Huxman said. “We don’t want to be a clearinghouse for resumes, but rather offer honest and personable service — that’s what it’s all about.”
