Englewood Cliffs, N.J. (PRWEB) September 14, 2013
The executive talent solutions firm JBK Associates International ranks No. 1132 on Inc. magazine’s seventh annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Headquartered in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., JBK Associates International joins LivingSocial, Edible Arrangements, CDW and Lifelock, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
JBK posted three-year sales growth of 370 percent in a year that brought revenue declines to the retained executive search industry both globally and in North America, according to data from the Association of Executive Search Consultants. The median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is 142 percent.
“We’ve defied norms by working as a team with clients who recognize that a fast-changing marketplace requires diverse talent,” says JBK Associates International CEO and President Julie Kampf. “As a management consulting firm for anything related to talent, we work hard to develop a deep understanding of each client’s culture, industry and workforce in order to help clients recruit, retain and develop successful leaders.”
This recognition joins dozens of other JBK awards and honors, which in the last year have included honors for Julie Kampf as part of the 2013 PharmaVOICE 100, which recognizes inspiring leadership and positive contributions to the life-sciences industry; as one of New Jersey’s top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs chosen by New Jersey Monthly; and as a recipient of the CEO Leadership in Action Award from Profiles in Diversity Journal. Over the last 12 months JBK Associates also has been recognized as an NJBIZ Business of the Year and as a DiversityBusiness.com Top Business. In addition, the firm was named to the 2012 Inc.500|5000.
