Operations Manager

Founded in 1969 in the CBD of New Orleans by William Troth, PCG had its first identity as a franchise of Electronic Systems Placement headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. The New Orleans office served the accounting and “data processing” sectors. Upon the demise of the ESP franchise, Mr. Troth continued the firm, renaming the company Accounting Personnel Consultants.  Mr. Troth also opened offices of APC in Atlanta, Houston and Dallas. Unfortunately, none of those remote offices survived the tumultuous economy of the early 1970’s.

 

A couple of years after founding the company, Mr. Troth had a life changing experience when he became a follower of Jesus Christ. He began to feel a tug to go into the Seminary and in 1974 did so, but not before meeting New Orleans native William Fagan, who himself had had a similar spiritual epiphany. Mr. Fagan added, because of his engineering background and experience, an engineering placement component to the firm and began Engineering Personnel Consultants which now complemented Accounting Personnel.

 

In 1974 Mr. Troth left New Orleans with his wife, Helene, and two children, to attend Dallas Theological Seminary. Mr. Troth has spent his entire life since his graduation from DTS in some form of vocational ministry. He now resides in South Bend, Indiana, with Helene.

 

In 1979, Frank Loria joined EPC as an Oil and Gas Engineering and Geoscience recruiter. In 1980, Dawson Nesbitt came aboard as a part of the accounting and finance recruiting team. They became partners in the firm when Mr. Fagan followed the path of Mr. Troth, and though Mr. Fagan did not attend seminary, he began a local ministry to businessmen and women in the Greater New Orleans area and Baton Rouge where he led Bible Studies and open conversation meetings about the validity of the Christian Faith.

 

In 1987, Mr. Nesbitt felt a move back to his roots would be fitting for his wife Alice and their four children, so that year Mr. Loria took over the reins of APC/EPC and began to build the company that is now known as The Personnel Consulting Group.

 

PCG today does not look much different than it did in the mid 1970’s in terms of its placement focus. PCG has direct hire placement disciplines in Accounting and Finance, Engineering and Geosciences, Oil and Gas, Information Technology and Human Resources. PCG also serves its clients with temporary/contract placement in accounting, bookkeeping, IT, HR and administrative support.

Map of Some of PCG's Recruiting Affiliates

Based in New Orleans, we expand the scope of our reach by being members of two nationwide recruiting and placement networks.  Through our networks, we have access to over 1000 recruiters in almost every state in the country as well as into Canada.

 

Recruiting networks provide us with exposure to professional talent and career opportunities from across the country…even globally.  By networking with other recruiting and placement specialists, we are able to provide our clients and candidates with expertise and opportunities that would otherwise be beyond their grasp.

 

The map shows the locations of the most active affiliates we have throughout the country.

Founded in 1988 in Canton, Ohio, Top Echelon’s mission statement is to “help recruiters make more placements by continuously exceeding expectations.” Top Echelon started solely as a split placement network, but it has expanded over the years, growing with its customers and creating new products and services to meet the needs of those customers.

 

Top Echelon Network, the leading split placement network, taps into the expertise, candidate sourcing, and client connections of hundreds of the top recruiting firms across the country. The Top Echelon recruiter network has helped recruiters make over 20,000 placements since 1988.

Founded in 1978, the American Association of Finance & Accounting (AAFA) is an alliance of executive search firms specializing in the recruiting and staffing of finance and accounting professionals.

 

AAFA's Affiliates follow a code of ethics for every candidate and every search. Drawing upon their extensive contacts and close working relationships with fellow AAFA recruiting professionals, employers, and job seekers, our AAFA Members deliver uncompromising service.

One of the greatest joys of what we do is participating in worthwhile ventures throughout New Orleans, the United States and different parts of the world. We believe the focus we are to have primarily is in the area of assisting those who are working with underprivileged and destitute children though our burden is certainly beyond that.

 

"You've Invested, They've Gained!!" It simply means that the opportunities you give us to serve you brings in the funds we need to support spiritually, emotionally and physically, the needy children and adults in our home town of New Orleans, over into Guadalupe, Mexico, and all the way across the globe to care for orphans in places like New Delhi, India.

 

To say that we are humbled by this privilege, would be an understatement. For more information, contact us at connect@pcgla.com or click on a logo. We are grateful and blessed to be able to support the following ministries (and others) through financial assistance, volunteering and prayer.

    In 1979, Frank Loria joined EPC as an Oil and Gas Engineering and Geoscience recruiter. In 1980, Dawson Nesbitt came aboard as a part of the accounting and finance recruiting team. They became partners in the firm when Mr. Fagan followed the path of Mr. Troth, and though Mr. Fagan did not attend seminary, he began a local ministry to businessmen and women in the Greater New Orleans area and Baton Rouge where he led Bible Studies and open conversation meetings about the validity of the Christian Faith.

     

    In 1987, Mr. Nesbitt felt a move back to his roots would be fitting for his wife Alice and their four children, so that year Mr. Loria took over the reins of APC/EPC and began to build the company that is now known as The Personnel Consulting Group.

     

    PCG today does not look much different than it did in the mid 1970’s in terms of its placement focus. PCG has direct hire placement disciplines in Accounting and Finance, Engineering and Geosciences, Oil and Gas, Information Technology and Human Resources. PCG also serves its clients with temporary/contract placement in accounting, bookkeeping, IT, HR and administrative support.

  • IN THE COMMUNITY

    One of the greatest joys of what we do is participating in worthwhile ventures throughout New Orleans, the United States and different parts of the world. We believe the focus we are to have primarily is in the area of assisting those who are working with underprivileged and destitute children though our burden is certainly beyond that.

     

    "You've Invested, They've Gained!!" It simply means that the opportunities you give us to serve you brings in the funds we need to support spiritually, emotionally and physically, the needy children and adults in our home town of New Orleans, over into Guadalupe, Mexico, and all the way across the globe to care for orphans in places like New Delhi, India.

     

    To say that we are humbled by this privilege, would be an understatement. For more information, contact us at connect@pcgla.com  or click on a logo. We are grateful and blessed to be able to support the following ministries (and others) through financial assistance, volunteering and prayer:
