Magellan Search & Staffing Ranks among the 2012 Fastest Growing Private U.S. Companies

Plymouth Meeting, PA – December 14, 2012 – In a time when many other recruiting and staffing firms have closed their doors, Magellan Search & Staffing is pleased to announce that they’ve been ranked number 1725 on the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing, privately-held companies. Magellan also attained a ranking of 46 for the Philadelphia Market Metro Area, 48 for the state of Pennsylvania and 51 for the HR/Recruiting Industry.

To qualify as one of America’s top independent entrepreneurial companies, Magellan Search & Staffing posted an impressive 165 percent growth rate between 2008 and 2011. For some employers, rapid growth like this could only be achieved at the expense of quality and service; but in Magellan’s case, nothing could be further from the truth. Throughout this period of tremendous expansion, the company has won a number of coveted business awards:

  • Philadelphia’s Fastest Growing privately-held businesses in the Philadelphia region (2007, 2008, 2011, 2012)
  • Nominee for Best Places to Work firm in Philadelphia (2008, 2011)
  • Top Executive Recruiters (2009, 2011, 2012)
  • Philadelphia’s 40 Under 40 (2012, Matthew Kenefic, Founder and President)
  • PICPA 40 Under 40 (2012, Brandon Saylor, Managing Director of Magellan’s Accounting & Finance Division)

So what is fueling this remarkable growth? According to Matthew Kenefic, Founder and President of Magellan Search & Staffing, “The credit goes to everyone who touches our business. We could not have sustained such significant growth without the support of our clients, as well as the commitment of the exceptional staff and candidates who contribute to Magellan’s success. I view our growth as a promising sign for employers and job seekers throughout the tri-state area.”

The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2011. The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
