We're growing rapidly and we wanted to share an update!
Written by: Ken Brown, Founder/President/CEO
This won't be a long post, I swear. After selling my technology recruiting business back in 2016 I ventured out to do something new. Something bigger, more polished, a more professional organization, with better processes, better health benefits, better people, and a more serious outlook on the recruiting business. Well folks, we’ve done it. I mean…we’re not exactly what we want to be (we probably never will be) but we’re well off to the races, that’s for sure. We’re doing everything I mentioned, and then some. Over a 100 clients in the United States, with client revenues well exceeding $20B, and the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with! I can honestly say I absolutely love where we are as a company and what we are doing. Our future is bright and there is an unmistakable electricity in the air each morning when we come into work.
The work we do matters to us because it matters to our clients and we take it seriously. That is not just a talking point. We mean it! We pour over our candidates and their qualifications. We strive to really bring value and when a candidate is subpar, we do the hard work of eliminating them from processes. Trust me, eliminating a mediocre candidate is the hardest thing you will ever do as a recruiter. It requires mental and emotional discipline.
Anyways, I want to talk about the picture above for a moment. Besides the fact I need to drop 10 pounds, this picture makes me extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished. We have grown this organization over the past 5 years to the point where we can build out a multi-million dollar corporate headquarters here in Altamonte Springs, FL that is “made to order”. Everything from the carpet tiles, to the full swing indoor golf simulator, to the Embody chairs is designed specifically with our business in mind. It hasn’t been easy. Most days aren’t. Most days are more of a struggle than they are a success. However that does make the victories that much sweeter! Everyone is running a million miles an hour, deals fall apart, and sometimes clients are downright tough to work with! Startups aren’t perfect or easy. Business in general never is. But all in all, I wouldn’t trade this journey with this incredible group of people for anything. It’s an honor to serve them as their leader and I wouldn’t give up a single day for a coushy corporate gig. I guess I like the excitement at work. It makes you feel alive. We’re headed for greatness. We’re going to be the household name in Construction Management recruiting. We’re going to be the preferred recruiting partner for the best developers and general contractors on earth. I'm sure of it.
I am going to update this thread often as I want to remember these times and how exciting they were as a company. Thanks for reading and sharing.BACK TO BLOGS
