Security expert to prevent Wordpress site hacking

We run a few small commercial websites on a shared server and have been having problems with being hacked.

The first time the login details for Google Merchant centre were accessed and a new user added.

The second time a new sitemap was added to Google merchant centre

Both times new files have been installed into the root directory, including a note from the hackers informing me I have been hacked.

I have installed security shield which noted these unrecognised core files:

wp-includes/Requests/[login to view URL]

I have removed these for the time being.

I am looking for someone who can verify the security of the 4 sites and add any additional security as required. I would also like someone to investigate how the hacker gained access and if we can resolve this.

Thanks
