HT Group Announces HT Cares! to Help Re-Open Texas

back-to-business new normal HT Group

The Program Brings Together 30+ C-Suite Experts in a Leader-to-Leader Think Tank to Help Texas Executives Work Through the Challenges of Re-opening.

Austin-based management consulting, staffing, and recruiting firm The HT Group today announces HT Cares!, a one-of-a-kind think tank of C-Suite executives brought together to help Texas business owners and executives navigate their re-opening challenges. With HT Cares!, 30+ top-tier C-Suite executives with experience at Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, marketing organizations, and more come together for one clear outcome: To help Texas businesses succeed in maneuvering through these unprecedented times to profitability and prosperity.

“What makes this opportunity one-of-a-kind is that these executives are not career consultants. They are peers with experience pivoting businesses through difficult times, and they usually aren’t available for these types of engagements,” says The HT Group President Chad Macy.

“We know that temporary, fractional help is what businesses need right now, and that’s exactly what this group provides,” adds The HT Group Director of Consulting Services Sam Wood. “It’s executives talking to executives, in what just might be the most interesting and helpful call you’ll ever have.”

Through HT Cares!, C-Suite professionals from area businesses can request an executive leader-to-leader conversation with a peer from a similar position, industry, or area of expertise. This peer can be another set of eyes on an organization’s back-to-work strategy and a confidential sounding board for questions and concerns about issues that will inevitably arise in the coming days, weeks, and months.

“The HT Group has found that executives want to volunteer their services and be a part of the HT Cares! initiative. Every company is, in essence, a startup right now, and can use some good advice,” says Patti Boyle, one of The HT Group’s executive advisors. “ Many have recognized that re-opening businesses will require an ’all hands on deck‘ approach and want to get involved.”

The executives available through HT Cares! are grouped based on their expertise in:
• Executive and Leadership Development/Emotional Intelligence
• Human Resources/Safety/Compliance/Talent Management
• Technology/Security
• Logistics/Supply Chain/Strategic Sourcing/E-commerce
• Financial Services

“We know that CEOs and their C-Suite teams are overwhelmed,” says The HT Group Co-Founder and Chairman Jim Gilliam. “A group of strangers has come together with open arms to be a resource. There’s a lot of firepower represented in these executives. It’s humbling, it’s exciting, and it has become a genuinely meaningful effort that we know will make a difference.”
