Kurt Wilkin


As an entrepreneur, Kurt has experience growing, scaling, and exiting high-growth companies and now devotes his time to helping business leaders unlock their own success. His responsibilities include strategic client consultation, client satisfaction, recruiting, and practice development.

His success as an entrepreneur stems from his ability to build long-term relationships with clients, attract a loyal team of dedicated leaders and associates, and consistently deliver on commitments.

Prior to founding HireBetter, Kurt founded and led The Controller Group (TCG), a professional services firm focused on accounting, technology and recruiting, which was acquired by Tatum in 2006. Post-acquisition, Kurt led the doubling of the firm’s revenues over a three-year period.

Kurt began his career with Ernst & Young, where he worked with early stage and high-growth middle market clients, and later served as Controller and Vice President of Finance for eFANshop, a Dallas-based internet retailer.

Kurt is an alumnus of the University of Arkansas, a Certified Public Accountant and an active member and officer of Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). Kurt is passionate about entrepreneurship, is an active angel investor and sits on the boards of several companies and nonprofits. He lives in Austin with his wife and three sons, and can usually be found coaching youth sports around town.
