BOSTON, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Business Journal has named AVID Technical Resources as one of the region's fastest-growing private companies in its fifth-annual Pacesetters awards. The honor recognizes the IT recruiting company's significant growth in revenue over the past three years despite the tough economy.
AVID Technical Resources made the Pacesetters list based on information gathered and assessed by the Boston Business Journal that detailed the company's performance from 2006 to 2010. To make the list, a company had to report annual revenue growth of at least 20 percent over a four-year period. This is the 4th consecutive year that AVID Technical Resources has made the list; making them one of the few companies in the state of Massachusetts ever to receive such an honor.
AVID Technical Resources (www.avidtr.com) is one of the nation's leading contract and permanent IT recruiting firm. Headquartered in Boston, MA, over the years the company has made thousands of local and national placements for clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.
"We're honored to be recognized as a Pacesetter once again – it speaks volumes about our employees and where our company is headed," said Principal Owner, Brian Tomasello. "We're proud to say we grew almost 20% last year – in what could be considered one of the most difficult economic climates in our nation's history. We can't control company budgets. We can't control hiring freezes. We can't control the economy. We can control how hard we work to fight our way through the downturn."
"We're always honored to recognize dynamic, privately held companies through our Pacesetters program," Business Journal Publisher Christopher McIntosh said. "But it's a special privilege at a time when these businesses are widely recognized as the engines driving our economic recovery. The success of these companies testifies not just to the vision of their owners and employees but also to the health of our region."
The winners will be recognized at a morning event April 28 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.
