Darren Hicks, CEO, started at Hicks Consulting Group unofficially more than 20 years ago. He has always had an avid interest in the family business and has worked closely with his father and company founder, David Hicks, for as long as he can remember.
After graduating from the University of Nevada, Reno, Darren wanted to serve his country. He spent the next nine years as a U.S. Navy SEAL, an elite organization that makes up less than one percent of U.S. Navy personnel. Darren had a highly-decorated career leading teams during combat operations and later becoming an instructor for basic SEAL training. Navy SEALs pride themselves on being mentally tough, working physically hard, never quitting, and having the right resources to operate in the most extreme environments.
In December 2005, Darren left the Navy to join Hicks Consulting Group, bringing with him the Navy SEAL discipline and work ethic. He learned the business from the ground up, ultimately taking the reigns as CEO. Darren brings his proven leadership skills, strong work ethic, and a passion for exceeding expectations on all levels. His enthusiasm for the business, his team, clients, and consultants is evident every day – resulting in happier clients, more efficient operations, and a renewed determination to set the standard for IT Staffing firms in the Bay Area.
During his free time, Darren enjoys motorcycling and numerous outdoor activities.
