TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2024 — MGT, a tech-led managed services business delivering high-value technology and social impact solutions for State, Local and Education agencies, national philanthropic organizations, and Fortune 500 clients, announced today that GovHRUSA and GovTempsUSA (GovHR) have joined the firm.

GovHR, based in Northbrook, Illinois, is a comprehensive executive recruitment, interim staffing, and human resources consulting company that serves local and state governments, intergovernmental organizations, school districts, and nonprofit entities. GovHR has been a leader in addressing widespread workforce challenges in recruitment and retention by bringing a robust legacy of high-impact, public-sector human resources expertise to their clients.

“GovHR leaders and team members have built an exceptional organization and reputation by delivering high-impact workforce solutions to their government clients for decades. Leveraging deep first-hand experience, the GovHR team partners with government agencies to create workforce solutions that elevate client performance and lift communities. Co-founders Joellen Cademartori and Heidi Voorhees are exceptional mission-driven leaders and we are delighted to welcome GovHR into the MGT family,” said MGT CEO Trey Traviesa.

Acquiring GovHR marks the strategic expansion of MGT’s Human Capital capabilities, helping clients who need strong partners who deliver specialized solutions addressing mission-critical organizational staffing needs. They provide an impressive depth of experience and subject matter experts in executive recruitment, temporary staffing and professional development, and organizational consulting. Together, it will dramatically strengthen MGT’s ability to support state, local, and education leaders as they grapple with the persistent decline in government employment, particularly in the most expertise-dependent roles.

“Our passion for service and commitment to local governments has never wavered. We believe combining with MGT will provide the opportunity to impact even more local governments around the country and stay true to our mission as our collective visions are aligned,” she said. “We are excited about this next chapter for GovHR and GovTemps and the opportunities it presents for our current and future clients, employees, and consultants,” said GovHR Co-founder Heidi Voorhees.
