Craig Patterson Director of Professional & Technical Services


Craig Patterson’s career path changed when he was called on by a recruiter and thought, “I want to do what he does” — and in fact, he was hired at that recruiter’s firm shortly after. Formerly an accountant after a degree in the subject from Southwest Texas University, he was drawn to the opportunity to provide assistance during the stressful process of job searching. With over 20 years of experience in recruiting, including 10 years of building his own firm, Patterson was the first Austin hire at the Addison Group, and now joins The HT Group as Managing Director, leading the executive search division. A native Texan, Patterson is married with four children, and his working philosophy is to help everyone, even if he can’t place them.
