Jack Hansen, founder of Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT, was raised on a ranch in the western Nebraska sand hills. Jack’s passion for agriculture and ag producers was kindled as a young boy working in his father’s creamery. Jack’s job was to take the butter fat content when the farmers brought in their cream and pay them accordingly.
Jack served in the Navy from 1952 to 1957 as an aerial photographer, flying from the deck of the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hancock off the coast of Korea during the Korean War. After returning from the service, he graduated from the University of Nebraska with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT was established on September 1, 1959. From the start, Jack built the business on the foundation of good business ethics, honesty, and integrity—principles that continue to guide the company today.
As the company prospered and grew, several of Jack’s children—Eric, Katrina, Jack Jr., and Kirk—joined the business. In 1966, the company became a member of an organization originally called National Personnel Associates (NPA), and is now one of the longest-tenured NPA owner-members. National Personnel Associates is now known as NPAworldwide Recruitment Network.
Through both the prosperous and the challenging years, Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT has made it their mission to consistently provide high-quality candidates for some of the leading employers in the ag industry. Jack felt there was always “one more question” that could be asked to find the ideal fit for both candidate and company. We still strive to ask that question today.
As a result, we have many candidates who return to us to help them take the next step in their career and employers who come back to us to help them with their hiring needs—the highest compliment that can be paid in our profession.
Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT continues to evolve and stay abreast of the latest technology in order to best serve individuals looking for their next position and employers looking for their next quality employee.
