Chicago and South Florida Recruiting Firm Named One of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the US for the Third Consecutive Year

CHICAGO, Illinois (August 17, 2017)— Brilliant™, an award-winning search, staffing and management resources firm specializing in accounting, finance and information technology, was ranked on the Inc. 5000 for the third, consecutive year.

Brilliant placed 2,136 on the 2017 Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, with 171 percent growth between 2013 and 2016.

In 2016, Brilliant ranked 1,211, and in 2015, the firm ranked 1,165.

“It is an honor to be named one of the fastest-growing companies in America right alongside so many other prominent businesses,” says CEO Jim Wong, CPA (Inactive). “From our inception, we’ve made it a priority to have a strong plan, vision and the right people on our team. This dynamic combination has been instrumental to our success.”

On average, the businesses on the 2017 list grew sixfold since 2013.

Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once—and only one in five have made the list three times.

This recognition comes right off the heels of other recent awards for Brilliant including being ranked the No. 19 fastest-growing staffing firm in the U.S. by Staffing Industry Analysts and the No. 21 fastest-growing company in Chicago on the 2017 Crain’s Fast 50.
