Integrated Management Resources (IMR) is a leading provider of IT and Finance executive search services, with a successful 32 year track record.

At IMR we cut our teeth servicing some of the most scrutinizing clients in the world: Investment Banks such as Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and HSBC, prestigious Hedge Funds, Insurance Companies, and, most recently, Private Equity Portfolio Companies in high-growth mode. We have successfully placed experienced professionals in PhD quantitative analytics, quantitative development, software engineering/architecture, risk management, sales/trading, and banking/origination.


IMR was founded in 1990 by Barry Franklin, a New York City native. As a recruiter for a top global executive search firm at the time, Barry set out to found a firm based on premium quality and unwavering ethics. Barry found a niche with Wall Street Clients by specializing in financial risk management and PhD quantitative analytics. Chad Dean, joined IMR in 2002, and he quickly became one of the top recruiters in the firm. Chad purchased IMR in 2009, and he has since expanded the recruiting capabilities of the firm. Today, Chad manages the day to day operations while being a player coach to a team of 11 recruiters. IMR’s success and track record, through up and down market cycles, has made the firm a key partner to the industry for talent acquisition. In 2017 IMR replicated the success it developed recruiting top talent for highly scrutinizing banks and hedge funds into two additional verticals: Private Equity Portfolio Companies and a local Phoenix, AZ executive search practice.

What our clients say about us

The primary feedback we receive from our clients is the high level of skill we collectively possess of recruiting highly sought after talent. We are the opposite of a “throw paper against the wall and see what sticks” type of firm. All IMR recruiters go through extensive training to ensure that they have a comprehensive understanding of the complexity of the niches we specialize in and in managing candidates. This knowledge allows us to thoroughly qualify candidates, and sets us apart from the competition. As a result, we only present qualified candidates with whom we have an established relationship. This ‘bulls-eye’ approach to presenting candidates saves the client valuable time reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates. It is equally important to recognize the trust and confidence our candidates have in us. Our process generates a level of access with our candidates that allow our recruiters to truly engage the passive candidates, and it often leads to exclusive relationships. This level of access allows us to surface candidates that the competition cannot. IMR prides itself in its more than 32 year tenure servicing our markets and the high level of service we provide to our clients. We look forward to an opportunity to show you our process in action.
