Timothy Gourley, Founder
Originally from Connecticut, Tim earned his BS in Business Administration from the University of Connecticut. He began his career as a Computer Programmer for a national consulting firm in Connecticut and Massachusetts where he focused on developing enterprise systems for Fortune 500 companies.
In 1996 Tim left the programming field and joined Kforce Professional Staffing (Source EDP) as a Technical Recruiter. There he expanded Kforce’s technology practice by bringing on high-profile clients primarily in software, services and financial services industries, and represented companies such as 3COM, IBM, Accenture, Scudder Kemper Investments, Brown Brothers Harriman, AEW Capital Management, Manulife, MFS, Staples, Dell, and Akamai.
Tim consistently ranked in the top 5% of his peer group and he consistently attained Performer’s Club and Board honors. Because he wanted to relocate back to Connecticut and start a family, Tim left Kforce to form East Coast Search LLC.
In his spare time, Tim enjoys training for triathlons, UCONN athletics, and spending time with his family and friends.
