CHICAGO, Illinois (September 1, 2015) — Brilliant™, a top search, staffing and management resources firm specializing in accounting, finance and IT within the greater Chicago and south Florida markets, was named the second fastest-growing staffing firm in the country by Staffing Industry Analysts.

Due to Brilliant’s impressive 75.7 percent compound growth between 2010 and 2014, the firm made the list at number two out of 102. The median for the top 10 firms on the list was 61.0 percent.

“It is an honor to be named one of the fastest-growing staffing firms in America. It’s because we have the right people, the right processes and the right culture that we keep seeing such success,” says CEO Jim Wong, CPA (Inactive). “From the beginning, we’ve always known we had a strong plan and vision. We’re making that vision a reality.”

The Brilliant culture is driven by the company’s mission to make people’s lives better.

President Jeff Mariola adds, “Our rapid and sustained growth is attributed to our expert team members, a well-thought out mission and vision, and a superior-level of service. We continue to make great strides for our clients, candidates and colleagues and plan to do so for many years to come.”

The Staffing Industry Analysts 2015 list of fastest-growing U.S. staffing firms is based on staffing revenue, which included temporary staffing revenue, direct hire, retained search and temp-to-perm conversion fees. To qualify for the list, staffing firms had to post at least $1 million in revenue in 2010 and have compound annual growth of at least 15 percent between 2010 and 2014.
