Our Story


In 1986, Betsy McCall left a successful (but not enjoyable) career selling capital equipment to paper mills and plastics manufacturers to seek work that would bring her joy, satisfaction and fulfillment. Her strong desire to enjoy and feel satisfaction in her work, and for others to experience the same sense of fulfillment, was the catapult that launched her new career.

Betsy formed an employment agency to help individuals find positions within Christian-oriented organizations where they could use the skills they enjoyed using the most. After a few years of success in matching job seekers with employers, Betsy realized she needed additional training and tools to be more effective in the recruiting industry. For six years, she learned the art of retained search work from one of Atlanta’s premier search recruiters.

In October, 1995, The Reisa Group was born.

Betsy chose “reisa” (pronounced ray-suh) as the company name because the word best embodies how she wants The Reisa Group to be of benefit to its clients. “Reisa” is a Scandinavian word that means to raise up, build, construct and increase the value of. The Reisa Group focuses on helping its clients to build a strong organizational infrastructure by offering retained search and referencing services.

We have built a strong organizational infrastructure at The Reisa Group.  Our associates are qualified to provide the services we offer to help our clients build strong organizational infrastructures in their own companies. Our associates enjoy using their skills, even when that requires working before and after regular hours during the week or on Saturday. We appreciate the opportunity we have to work with each of our clients. We understand that we are their representatives in the marketplace and conduct business on their behalf with the utmost of professionalism.
