Business Management Division
Dan Hemphill - President
I have enjoyed recruiting accounting and finance professionals for corporations in Omaha and throughout the upper Midwest for nearly 30 years. I joined Robert Half International in 1988 and was promoted to Director in 1993. In 1998, I earned their "Chairman's Club" award for leadership. In February 2000, I made the decision to "live my dream" and founded Hemphill Search Group, following with Hemphill Staffing Solutions in 2001. I am proud of our team, the progress we've made to date, and I am even more excited about our future growth!
I understand that a company is only as strong as the players it has on the field. I am passionate about understanding each client's business, culture, and growth objectives, so we can identify the individuals who will ultimately help our clients achieve their goals. Our reputation is "on the line" each time we assist a client in hiring a new employee. We take the time to make sure that we have found the "right match" so that each candidate we place is well positioned for success. Since excellence always endures and remains long after cost is forgotten, our team is squarely focused on delivering quality solutions the first time. Because our Firm is built upon a foundation of strong values, I know that taking the "high road" and "doing the right thing" consistently are the cornerstones to lasting business relationships.
I grew up in Griswold, Iowa, and graduated from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. During my undergraduate studies I was a member of the football team and Students In Free Enterprise. I later completed the Entrepreneurial Masters Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I am an active supporter of Financial Executives International (FEI) and I am a proud member of The Association for Corporate Growth of Nebraska (ACG Nebraska). I am a Charter Member of the Nebraska Chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), where I served several years on their Board of Directors. As a Director of the American Association of Finance and Accounting (AAFA), the oldest and largest alliance of executive search firms specializing in the recruitment and staffing of Finance and Accounting professionals, I gain exposure to national issues and trends. I have served as a member of the Alumni Board of Buena Vista University where I am committed to giving back to the students and leadership team of Buena Vista University. I am also an active member of Westside Church in Omaha.
My wife Susie and I have four children, Cameron, Austin, Miles and Carmel.
Dave Reemts - Controller and Business Manager
Dave is a seasoned financial executive who brings a wealth of leadership and experience to our firm. Dave leads all aspects of accounting and financial management, information technology, procurement, banking, risk management, human resources, and most aspects of our administration. Dave ensures that the systems, processes, and infrastructure are in place to support our continued growth.
Dave began his career with KPMG, was recruited to Sidles Enterprises as their Chief Accountant, and was promoted to Controller of Midlands Automotive Warehouse, a sister company. In 1987, Dave joined Byron Reed Company, Inc. and TransEquity, Inc. as their Vice President and Controller and was subsequently appointed to their Board of Directors. When the businesses were sold in 2003 and the owner retired, Dave accepted a position with Haley Associates as their Director of Acquisitions.

Tonya Lampe - Accountant
Tonya plays an important role in our company while taking ownership for accounting, financial reporting, management reporting, analysis, budgeting, forecasting, and special projects.
Tonya started her career with Deloitte where she served as a Senior Auditor. She was recruited to West Corporation where she progressed to Director of Accounting before stepping out of the demands of a full time position to focus on her family. Tonya now enjoys the flexibility of a part-time schedule at Hemphill allowing her to spend more time with her family. In addition to her responsibilities at Hemphill, Tonya enjoys serving as Treasurer of the Rohwer Elementary PTO, and as a Teacher of religious education at St. Stephen the Martyr.
