The Valeo Team

Robert Murphy Co-founder Rob Murphy has recruiting in his blood. His grandfather founded Nurses PRN, a national nurse staffing agency, in Miami, FL in the early 1970’s and his parents started the Palm Beach County branch in the mid 80’s. Rob has quite literally grown up in a staffing office and was managing a team of applicant sourcing agents while completing his High School education.

After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from the University of Central Florida, Rob went to work for national executive search firm COD Group. Rob spent his time at COD building a prosperous Healthcare recruitment division from the ground up and rose through the ranks quickly, eventually being promoted to Branch Manager. In 2011, Rob founded Valeo Resources, LLC with the mission of elevating the level of client service he saw lacking among Healthcare staffing firms. By applying the tools and teachings of some of the best headhunting firms in the business, and assembling a powerful team of leaders and recruiters, Rob has built a platform of service that far exceeds what was previously available to the Healthcare space. Today, Valeo Resources utilizes the most advanced technologies to maintain time efficiency, client service and candidate quality, all while delivering at a competitive price point.
