ATLANTA, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Human Capital Initiative (HCI), an Atlanta-based HR services and leadership consulting and executive coaching firm, has been acquired by The Human Capital Group (HCG). HCG, based in Brentwood, TN, specializes in retained executive search and leadership consulting. Ed Chaffin, founder and president of HCI, had been looking to expand the firm that he launched in 2009 when he and Steve Hayes, founder and senior partner of HCG, met and realized the potential of working together.
"Steve and I discovered that we shared a common bond in our values and our faith. What he and his team have built over the past 11 years is very impressive," says Ed Chaffin. "The fact that he would see value in HCI and what we had created was flattering. The services that HCG provides and the manner they provide them in is something that I will be proud to represent." Ed Chaffin will join The Human Capital Group as a Senior Consultant and will open a Baton Rouge, Louisiana office. He will add HCG's retained executive search to his portfolio as well as continue to provide leadership consulting and executive coaching.
"I initially reached out in early 2012 to Ed Chaffin, and we discovered similar journeys in our lives and with our companies," says Steve Hayes. "We are very excited about adding someone with Ed's extensive corporate track record and entrepreneurial spirit to our team." According to Hayes, "We are humbled and excited to unite two equally yoked firms committed to serving our diverse and growing base of clients. We will leverage The Human Capital Initiative name, capabilities, and trademarks to enhance our current Leadership Consulting, Speaking, and Executive Coaching offerings, as well as to serve and develop companies and organizations in the ever-changing global marketplace."
