In 2015, Management Resource Group, Ltd. (MRG) announced its closing of the Hiawatha, IA location after 19 years and would remain open at their headquarters in Davenport, IA. With so many client needs in our community from a local, trusted provider, they saw a need to continue to offer high touch career transition / outplacement services to departing employees of companies in the Corridor.

To that end, they reached out to Jennifer Lawrence, a past outplacement consultant and once MRG’s Managing Director for the Hiawatha office. Jennifer’s experience in the HR profession, as well as her genuine interest in helping others connect within our community, made her a perfect choice for the opportunity.

In addition, Andrea Wagner, MRG's senior career transition consultant in Hiawatha since 2004, will continue to support outreach to clients in this new organization. Andrea’s in-depth career counseling experience, trust and professionalism, make her a huge asset to the team.

A seamless transition

While the name is new, the level of trusted professional services is still the same. Participants continue to receive the same access to technology, materials and high-touch personal service as always. We don’t meet with clients in coffees shops; rather, we continue to offer private office space -- only two doors down from the previous office of MRG.

Our reputation for ethical and effective career transition services continues in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City corridor and extends to clients in Waterloo/Cedar Falls.
