United Talent (UT) was formed in 1967 by father-son team Herchiel and Herk Sims. It’s primary purpose was to recruit for their other growing business, Employers Service Corporation (ESC). Over the years clients of that business began asking for assistance with recruitment of employees and UT saw modest growth serving these businesses. In 1995 a third generation joined the team and began working with both companies as General Accounting Manager. In 1998 Herk Sims began the process of selling ESC at which point Brad started purchasing the business. Soon, branch locations began to pop up in Teays Valley, Morgantown, Parkersburg and then Huntington. UT now serves some of the state’s largest employers with a full array of staffing services and is positioning to grow its footprint outside the borders of WV.
