ZRG Acquires Helbling & Associates to Expand Real Estate Practice

Rochelle Park-based ZRG, a growing global talent advisory firm, has acquired Helbling & Associates, a national executive search firm focused on real estate, facilities, and construction.

Helbling & Associates, based in Wexford, PA, was established in 1992 by Tom Helbling to meet the recruiting needs of construction contractors and real estate developers. As clients began referring the firm to their professional networks, Helbling’s client base expanded to entities with significant real estate assets and facilities management needs.

Today, Helbling’s clients include institutions of education, healthcare, and research, as well as cultural and community organizations. The group has completed search assignments in 43 states.

“The addition of the Helbling team to the ZRG family will bolster our growing Real Estate practice,” said Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG. “We’ll have more resources for our clients, including support in the construction sector of the real estate industry. We are very excited to bring even greater depth and breadth of expertise to the companies we serve.”

Nate Frank, president of executive search at ZRG, said, “Our focus is always on our clients. What can a new acquisition add to our service offerings? In the case of Helbling, it’s deep experience across aligned verticals in the real estate industry and a coast-to-coast record of excellence. We’re very happy to have them on board.”

“Becoming a ZRG company is a monumental occasion in our firm’s 30-year history and an opportunity for our team to grow,” Tom Helbling said. “We look forward to providing our esteemed clients with data-driven tools and expanded service offerings.”

“I’ve known Tom for many years,” stated Kevin Jones, managing partner and co-leader of ZRG’s Real Estate Practice. “His and his team’s focus on client service and the importance of relationship building will blend effortlessly with the way we help our clients at ZRG.”
