Aligning talent to grow businesses and change lives.

Established in 1971, a dedicated and talented team of staffing professionals successfully turned a small family business into a big success story in Hampton Roads. Uniquely focusing on both executive search and staffing, The Lee Group is recognized as the leading provider of staffing services in the Eastern Virginia area, employing hundreds of associates every day. Our success has led our executive search consultants at Lee Group Search to the forefront of our industry, with a national reputation built on expertise, discipline and professionalism. Our dedicated team of staffing professionals works with an innovative process to interview and place only the best employees for our valued clients.

In January 2007, Walter Graham and Eric Kean two long-term employees, assumed ownership of The Lee Group. Under their leadership, The Lee Group has continued to thrive and grow. Their long-time relationship as employees of The Lee Group gives them a unique perspective toward customer service, candidate relationships and employee relations. They are hands-on owners, dedicated to carrying on the outstanding reputation as industry leaders that has been the cornerstone of The Lee Group’s success.

In 2012, The Lee Group expanded its team to Richmond where it opened an office in Chesterfield. With overwhelming support from loyal customers with operations in both Hampton Roads and Richmond we are continuing to grow.
