At GPS, we help navigate your organization to its destination with unparalleled professionalism, integrity and a commitment to customer service.
GPS believes that too often the process of finding the next leader for your organization is a cookie-cutter process that focuses on developing a community profile and quickly finding a candidate and collecting a hefty fee.
This is one of the cornerstones of GPS’ founding. Managers do not often have the time or opportunity to spend the necessary time developing their leadership team.
Our founders have strong backgrounds in utility management having managed electric, water and wastewater systems throughout the Midwest and Texas including having served on the Executive Board of the Kansas Municipal Energy Agency.
Managers and governing bodies can never have enough expertise and advice at their fingertips on human resources matters. This arena has only become more complex and riskier for local governments.
What Our Clients Say
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal:
It is the courage to continue that counts.”
City Manager of Hutto, Texas
I’m writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Bret Bauer, Partner & Co-Founder of Government Professional Solutions (“GPS”) who I have had the pleasure of working with over the past 7 months related to our Chief Financial Officer placement with the City of Hutto, and our most recent placement for a Director of Public Works. Bret (along with his colleague Chris Lowe) have been extremely thorough with the recruitment process from inception to negotiating, and extending the offer.
GPS is a boutique recruiting firm specializing in government positions, due to their many years of experience working in the public government sector. Bret’s experience of serving in city management roles has been extremely beneficial, as he understands the needs of city government experience for these types of placements, which is most valuable during the screening process. This streamlines my time as the City Manager to focus on City issues, as I know we are in good hands, as Bret takes the time needed to figure out exactly the type of background and personality we are in search of for any given position, and only presents those top-notch candidates meeting our criteria. GPS creates the hiring brochure which is necessary to initially attract potential candidates, and is meticulous in their overall screening process and always carves out time to answer any questions I might have during the process. They have great attention to detail, and a great pool of candidates. This is the reason I have continued to use GPS for other placements within the City of Hutto. I would highly recommend Government Professional Solutions to any City or Government entity looking to recruit for executive-level positions.
