Van Allen stumbled into the business of physician recruiting like most people did in the early 90’s, and that was by responding to a job posting in the Sunday Classifieds. He learned the business by immersing himself in an overly aggressive and robust environment and now he has spent over 20 years refining a craft that has his thumbprint all over it.
He relocated from Dallas to Columbia, MO after spending 8 years working for one of the larger physician recruiting firms. Toward the end of wrapping up his post graduate studies in Health Services Administration, Tenet Physician Services asked him to assume the role of Regional Director of 9 primary care clinics throughout central Missouri. Not long after relocating to Columbia, Tenet sold the hospital to the University of Missouri and the executive team Van was a part of was not needed after the acquisition. He fell in love with Columbia and decided the only way he was going to remain in the area was to go back to his professional roots of physician recruitment. He started his first recruiting firm Timeline Recruiting in 1999 and sold that company in 2006. After sitting on the sideline for a few years, Van decided to open his second recruiting firm The Hire Connection.
The Hire Connection is based in Columbia, MO. They transitioned to a virtual office setting in 2017 and has associates located from Boston to Denver and everywhere in between. Please call to learn more at 573-289-2824.
Under Allen’s leadership, THC’s unique approach to recruiting, which fully utilizes technology for better results, more efficiently helps candidates and facilities realize their goals. Personally, we think every recruiting firm should work this way; but then again, we’re kind of glad they don’t.
At THC, because our team takes great pride in providing every candidate with an amazing placement experience from start to finish, we work exceptionally hard to get the best results.
