About Hugh

Hugh Gallagher is an Allentown, PA native who graduated from Central Catholic HS as a member of the National Honor Society, Varsity letterwinner in 3 sports and serving as their school's Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Hugh holds a Bachelor's Degree in Management from Gettysburg College.

After working in the insurance field for 6 years after college, he switched to the recruiting industry in 1995. He started with a boutique firm on Philadelphia's Main Line. Hugh's early recruiting career was focused on the insurance industry both on the carrier side as well as the agent/broker side. From there, he helped lead and develop the staff of a start-up recruiting firm in the Lehigh Valley, building from the ground up as their first employee to a firm doing over $10 million a year in sales. Hugh's focus was primarily in the sales arena where he, as a third-party recruiter, managed and steered the national sales expansion of a division of a Fortune 50 client. In that engagement, he placed hundreds of individuals nationwide in a multibillion-dollar sales organization, successfully placing candidates in all 50 states and several Canadian territories as well.

Founding of The Gallagher Search Group

Prior to founding The Gallagher Search Group in 2014, Hugh diversified his focus and leveraged his vast contact base-expanding to handling Accounting, Information Technology, Supply Chain/Purchasing, Human Resources, Manufacturing Management and Customer Services roles as well. The experience in these roles coupled with his prior experience in insurance and sales allowed for an immediate and robust launch to The Gallagher Search Group.

In 2017, Hugh again diversified his product offering to include consulting focused strictly on the recruiting function and business development initiatives therein. This consultation piece has been modified and replicated in various settings since that time. Hugh has received numerous awards and has been featured in dozens of articles and podcasts.

Hugh and Christine have a blended family of seven children (and two grandchildren). They are very active in the Allentown/Lehigh Valley Community. Among the many organizations they serve and support have been The Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, KidsPeace, The Pediatric Cancer Society of the Lehigh Valley, Beachview Dreams, The Allentown St. Patrick's Day Parade and the Mercy School for Special Learning.
