About Us

The Velocity Story

After years of working in corporate recruiting, David Simpson and John Fortino had experienced their fair share of difficulties in the candidate sourcing process. Tired of the inefficiencies, an idea was born: outsource the high-volume work of sourcing and qualifying candidates so that organizations can focus on the high-value tasks that get best-fit candidates in the door. Qualified, Available, and Interested candidates delivered overnight. This is Velocity Resource Group’s promise from Day 1.

Since 2001 our goal has been to continuously improve the candidate sourcing and engagement process. 20 years later, we’ve evolved from simply sourcing resumes on the Internet to full-range candidate engagement.
