Company History

Since 1994, Matura Farrington Inc. has been helping our clients to meet their strategic staffing goals and better realize the value of specialized recruiting in order to drive change, improve efficiency, and enhance profitability within their organizations.

Matura Farrington Inc. was founded in 1994 as an exclusively direct hire recruiting firm specializing in the placement of legal staff. For the next five years we built a solid reputation in the Los Angeles legal and corporate communities for providing a level of service not typical of the standard staffing firm; a personalized, honest, and professional approach became our signature. Based on our successful business model and our experience and expertise in direct hire recruiting, in 1999 we expanded our company to include a temporary division in order to meet all of the hiring needs requested by our clients.

Today, we are proud to offer our clients, which includes local and national law firms, Fortune 500 corporations, and Los Angeles-based companies, a complete and comprehensive staffing service with a commitment and dedication to quality recruiting that is above the traditional employment agency. Since 1994, our team of professional recruiters is credited with helping our company build its client base. Each has been chosen because they possess the same philosophy and approach to recruiting that our company was built on; they are an integral part of our success.

Our purpose is to create a valuable recruiting experience for our clients and candidates. We create this value through our unique differentiators:

Comprehensive We provide direct-hire and temporary staffing assistance for all support and management position in the following business sectors:

  • Legal: Law Firms and Corporate Counsels
  • Professional Services: Accounting, Management Consulting, Engineering & Architecture
  • Fortune 500 and Corporations of all sizes
  • Financial Services: Banking, Investment & Money Management
  • Real Estate: Investment, Development & Consulting

Leadership From 1994 to 2021, our company was owned and operated by the original founders. In December 2021, Karen Farrington retired from the company and Gary Matura continues as the president and CEO striving to set the standard in the staffing community through his ability to embrace and commit to the company’s vision and mission, and to continually raise the bar as an industry leader. Gary is an integral part of the daily operations to ensure standards are maintained with all clients and candidates, including many who have been working with them for over 20 years.

Matchmakers A candidate’s resume and test scores are only part of the story; we examine values, motives, and compatibility before making a recommendation to a client. Our approach to staffing comes from the simple philosophy that we don’t put square pegs into round holes; our business is about matching employers with employees to form successful work relationships. Our recruiters are trained to listen to both parties specific needs, priorities, and goals, then make an honest evaluation to determine the right match between clients and candidates.

Specialized – We have been working under the specialist approach to recruiting since 1994 and attract the best talent in the marketplace. Our recruiters are the experts in their fields because each one of them focuses on a few specific positions within an industry. As specialist, they are the Who’s Who in their niche and are able to attract more candidates outside of the traditional recruiting methods such as job boards and resume dbases. These are the passive candidates, not using every staffing service in town, and have the stronger backgrounds that our clients hire us to find. Our recruiters’ depth of expertise qualifies them to provide true consultative recruiting for specific candidate pools and trends within an industry. The result is a measurable increase in our clients ability to compete for the best talent or the best job.

Experienced Our staff is comprised of experienced recruiters who have earned our trust and respect and have an average tenure approaching 5 years; the industry standard is less than 2. Our clients know that the same team is here to service them year after year which allows for an efficient and effective working relationship. In addition, we give them the authority and independence to directly make decisions that are best for our clients without the red-tape of a large, national agency.

Synergy – We have one of the largest, single offices of recruiters within our market place. This large team working together creates synergy where the final outcome is greater than the sum of its parts. The power of our team provides our clients with a vast network of candidate options and services unmatched by our competitors.

Compliant We understand the risks associated with today’s employment environment. We take seriously our obligation to protect our clients from liabilities and exposures to risks. We are committed to educating ourselves and our clients in all areas of employment law compliance and risk management, and take great pride in implementing these policies without compromise. Problems are inevitable when it comes to managing people; we commit to being your partner when these times arise.
