The philosophy behind PRG is simple: We strive to find the best fit for candidates and clients based on such tangible qualities as experience, education, and location as well as intangible qualities, such as team chemistry and work environments. PRG is unique to the industry in that the key players have not only recruited and consulted in the industry, but have also worked in many of the roles that they fill first hand as employees of some of the most successful firms in the industry.

PRG was founded by J. Michael Edwards, an entrepreneur and industry executive search leader since 1998.  Michael is an MBA, who has worked in the energy industry since graduating from Baylor University in 1988. He has personally developed numerous private power generation plants and energy services projects throughout the world. In seeking candidates to fill his business development teams, he found a lack of headhunting expertise in the energy field and has dedicated his efforts to fill that void. 

PRG has placed hundreds of candidates and its clients range from innovative start-up and private equity firms to the industry largest players.  PRG fills a wide range of position from "C" level roles to Field Service Technicians.  When you are ready to bring in the experts to build your team, turn to a proven firm whose team has successfully done just that time and time again.
