Empyrean Management Group's CEO Michael G. Kalinsky has been named by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of its 2006 40 Under 40 Business Leaders. Kalinsky also serves as the Deputy Chief of Harleysville Area EMS.

From conference calls to emergency calls is how Empyrean Management Group CEO Michael Kalinsky’s Mondays go sometimes. When Kalinsky is not leading his six-year-old management consulting company based in Blue Bell, PA he can be found serving as the Deputy Chief of Harleysville Area EMS based in Lower Salford, PA. This unique combination helped land Kalinsky on the 40 Under 40 list of Delaware Valley Young Professionals compiled by the Philadelphia Business Journal and its co-sponsors, Bank of America, RSM McGladrey, and the Fox School of Business at Temple University. This prestigious 16-year-old list is made up of high achievers that have made an impact on the Delaware Valley through their words and actions in the business world as well as their communities.

The editors of the Philadelphia Business Journal received a record 250 plus nominations for the 40 Under 40 for 2006 and spent many hours evaluating the awardees. The 40 Under 40 Award is not the first appearance in the Business Journal by Kalinsky or Empyrean Management Group. In August of 2005, EMG and Kalinsky were profiled in a Growth Strategies article entitled, Remember What You Said. Later on in 2005, the company was named for the first time to the Philly 100, a list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the Philadelphia region. Capping off the company’s run of awards it was also named to the 2005 Inc. Magazine, Inc. 500 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the US.

“Being named to the Philly 40 Under 40 is truly a great honor for my company and for me. One of the Core Values of Empyrean Management Group is Community Involvement and I see this recognition from the Philadelphia Business Journal and its sponsors as validation of our values. In 2005, EMG helped raise or donated more than $25,000 in support of events like the 1st Annual John Kulick Memorial Golf Event and the Race to Cure Parkinson’s Disease. I can handle the aggravation my accountant gives me every time he checks to see how much time or money donated to a deserving charity when I know that there others out there that value what we do. While I may be the one receiving this award I am fully aware that none of the success the company or I have experienced would be possible without the hard word and dedication of the members of the EMG team,” said Mike Kalinsky, Empyrean Management Group CEO.

Kalinsky currently serves as the President and CEO of Empyrean Management Group, Inc. and is one of the co-founders of the company. He moved into his current role in the summer of 2001. The company has grown during this time from two employees to over one hundred employees and consultants serving clients throughout the US. The company is based in Blue Bell, PA, and provides companies with outsourced HR, Recruiting, and Training services as well temporary staffing solutions through its Strategic Search Group division.

In his spare time Kalinsky, volunteers as the Deputy Chief of Harleysville Area EMS where he is also one of the founding members. HAEMS is a 911 provider based in Lower Salford, PA that serves over 15,000 residents living in Harleysville and parts of the surrounding area.
