Our Story

By prioritizing clients and their needs, Tyler & Company has distinguished itself for almost 40 years as a trusted partner in healthcare executive search, consistently delivering outstanding results.

We began as small firm in 1978, founded by Chairman Emeritus J. Larry Tyler, a certified public accountant and former CFO who dedicated the company’s early days to financial searches. After the first healthcare client signed, the direction shifted and by the end of the second year, Tyler & Company was working exclusively in the healthcare industry.

Headquartered in Atlanta, the firm has more than 20 highly credentialed and experienced vice presidents and consultants.

Tyler & Company is known as one of the strongest healthcare-focused executive search firms in the United States. It regularly ranks in Modern Healthcare’s list of ‘Largest Healthcare Executive Search Firms’ as well as Forbes list of ‘America’s Best Executive Search Firms.’ It is the sole retained executive search firm for Texas Hospital Association (THA) and the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA). The firm is a member of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) and fully abides by its Code of Ethics.

In 2013, Tyler & Company joined Jackson Healthcare, aligning itself with the nation’s third largest healthcare staffing company, which serves 7.5 million patients in more than 1,400 healthcare facilities. The company also provides hospitals with logistical solutions for patient throughput and systemic operational efficiency. Jackson has earned national media coverage for its innovative solutions to healthcare challenges as well as for notable national and international charitable work.
