SGR helps local governments recruit, select and develop innovative leaders at all levels of the organization.Established in 1999 by former City Manager Ron Holifield, SGR has grown into the largest private sector provider of live training for local government employees in the nation, as well as the third largest local government executive search firm in the nation. SGR is also the only company in the nation with a comprehensive online learning management system offering a broad array of content developed specifically for local government employees. SGR’s business model is truly unique. Although SGR is a private company, we “act like” a local government association. Client agencies pay membership dues and are treated as members and as peer local officials, not merely as customers. Most of SGR’s principals are former local government officials. As a result, SGR brings a perspective and a depth of local government expertise to every project that no other firm can match.
