Greg Lamboy
Founder | Partner
Greg focuses on Client Engagement and Talent Acquisition for Hager Executive Search and established the Marketing/Branding and Digital Media verticals within the company. Greg’s primary responsibility at Hager is Vice President of Talent Acquisition, able to find and engage top tier talent for Hager’s client partners and bringing with him an incredible understanding of how talent interfaces within a client organization. During his tenure with Hager Executive Search, Greg has developed a reputation as an executive recruiter who always works in the best interest of the client but with an understanding to the needs and situations of the candidate, thereby ensuring the best match for both client and talent. The extensive research he conducts for every Executive Search ensures that Hager finds the best match for our clients’ short and long term needs.

An accomplished singer/songwriter and musician, when not solving clients’ challenges, Greg performs out regularly as a soloist and with his band Pacific Standard. His propensity towards music frequently leads him to answer various questions posed around the office by bursting into song - “Are we still waiting on the client response to the slate of talent we sent?” “The waaayyyting is the hardest part!” - much to the “delight” of the Hager team.
