Boly:Welch is in the people business – we hire top talent, help clients retain employees, and invest in their success. From Executive Search to Recruiting, Contract & Temporary Staffing and HR Consulting, people matter.

In 1986, partners Diane Boly and Pat Welch founded the company with a vision based on community connections and matching talented candidates with great job opportunities. Since that beginning, the firm has grown organically to over 40 employees now located in the historic Power + Light Building in downtown Portland. We are proud to have been recognized for our contributions to the community, by the employers and candidates who define our successes, and for our commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profits through our B Corporation certification.

We are proud to offer four key solutions to our wide range of clients:

A robust Executive Search division is characterized by a passion for excellence and an exceptional understanding of what it takes to bring people together in the selection of leadership and C-Suite talent.

Our Recruiting team connects global talent with Direct-Hire opportunities across critical market verticals in Accounting, Financial Services, Human Resources, Legal, and Office professions.

An active Contract & Temporary Staffing department works side by side with our Direct-Hire recruiting group to identify exceptional talent for contingent needs in each professional vertical.

HR Consulting offers Human Resources solutions to our clients through a flexible delivery model including Total Rewards, Training & Development, Talent Acquisition, Onboarding, and Outplacement.

Deep roots. Sustainable connections. Community impact. Our path to success.
