The ByrdGroup story started in May 2004 when Chris Byrd decided to "go out on his own" and form Byrd Professional Resources LLC. Chris had over 8 years of staffing and recruiting experience at the time and saw that the Oracle and PeopleSoft staffing world lacked a company that would really commit to a partnership approach with Clients, Consultants, Contractors, and Candidates.
With a laptop and basement office, Byrd Professional Resources hit the ground running and it wasn't long before we placed our first contractor, Ken Gogel, with our first client, a company in Alpharetta, GA known as Impact Innovations. The plan was to provide qualified Oracle and PeopleSoft contract resources to clients running these applications and to also work with consulting firms needing to augment their project teams when internal resources were not available for client projects. The first year went very well and things took off in 2005 and beyond. Our first (of many) Oracle contract placements was made in 2005 and this helped build a company focused on two strong ERP applications, Oracle and PeopleSoft.
From 2005 to 2016 or so, Byrd Professional Resources primarily worked as the staffing partner for small to mid-sized consulting firms. Our work was generally behind the scenes as the consultants we provided worked on implementation and upgrade projects all across the US. Of course, we also worked with end-user companies and, in 2017, began providing large program staffing to a client working on a national Oracle EBS rollout. This project continues and we also are proud to serve as the lead functional Oracle staffing partner for one of the largest shipping ports in the United States.
After years as Byrd Professional Resources, the company name was changed to ByrdGroup in early 2020. Adopting the slogan - "ByrdGroup ERP/Cloud Talent: Delivered" - helped us communicate our goal of becoming the trusted staffing and recruiting partner for ERP's like Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft, and JDE, as well as the newer Cloud-based applications such as Oracle Cloud (Fusion), Workday, SAP SuccessFactors, and ServiceNow.
ByrdGroup is truly a family affair with Chris, his wife Kara, and, oftentimes, their kids helping out as they got older. Please be sure to visit our Linked In profiles and contact us any time we can help you.
