Our ClientsBelow are just a few of the clients with whom we are proud to work... ENCAP I L.P.Our Founder / PresidentBefore founding Murray Resources in 1988, I worked in the recruiting and staffingindustry for several years. I loved the concept of bringing the right talent and organizationstogether, but I didn’t like the way I’d seen it done. I had a vision of building a recruiting firm basedon respect—respect for companies who trust us to help them with important decisions thatinfluence their bottom lines, and respect for candidates who turn to us at critical points in theircareers and lives. Staying true to this vision has translated into growth and long-term success for Murray Resources, our clients, and our candidates. We’re proud of our reputation and the fact that over half our clients and applicants are referred to us by colleagues or friends.
