In 1989, Brooke Companies, Inc. was founded In New Orleans, Louisiana by Susan Krohn, CPC, CTS to provide employment solutions for the business community specializing in General Office, Legal and Accounting professions. Brooke operated as a small, successful staffing company well into the ‘90s when growth compelled expansion. In 1998, Brooke opened a second office in Metairie, Louisiana and started to hire more teams of recruiters to help with the successful growth.
The company started eyeing expansion into Houston over the next couple of years and when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, tearing the roof off of the building in Metairie, those plans were expedited and Brooke opened in Houston. After the storm, Brooke returned to a repaired building and consolidated operations in Metairie while continuing to grow the Houston offices. Brooke worked diligently after the storm to aid in New Orleans’ recovery.
Now, Brooke is established in both Houston and New Orleans as the firm to go to when you need the very best employees in General Office Support, Accounting/Finance and Legal Support. Additionally, Brooke’s ownership has recently launched another company, Brightson Document Review, to staff attorneys and manage large document review projects in Houston and nationally. It’s an exciting time at Brooke and we encourage you to be a part of it!
