BLUE BELL, PA, October 9, 2015 – McGrath Systems, a leader in the nationwide staffing and recruiting industry, is excited to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. McGrath Systems has come a long way since President/CEO, Mike Wiley, founded the company in 2005 in the basement of his home. McGrath has since grown exponentially and has been recognized by several business entities as a top-ranked privately-owned company in the region, servicing mid-sized to fortune 100 companies.
“McGrath would like to thank everyone that has been a part of our decade of success; learning from our clients, candidates, and partners have been instrumental in the growth of the company,” said Wiley. “I am very proud of the great challenges we have overcome, including the worst downturn the economy has seen in over 70 years,” Wiley added.
McGrath Systems broke into the technical staffing industry by placing engineers and developers with local Philadelphia clients. By 2007, McGrath was recognized as a top provider of staffing and recruiting services in the Greater Philadelphia Area. From there, the business quickly grew throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, into Texas and Missouri, and eventually expanded nationwide.
Over the last decade, McGrath Systems has received many awards marking outstanding achievement. The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce awarded McGrath the Emerging Business Award Recipient of the Year in 2010, The Philadelphia Business Journal has named McGrath Systems a top executive recruiting firm by contingency search in the region six times and one of the fastest-growing companies in the region four times. This past year, for the third time, McGrath was named to the Inc. 500|5000 list for being one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. Additionally, SmartCEO has ranked McGrath Systems as a Future 50-Fastest Growing Company.
Looking ahead, Wiley projects to increase McGrath’s sales by an additional 25 to 30 percent as the company is focused on another solid year of growth. Although Wiley is aware of some of the challenges that might pose a threat to the company from reaching or exceeding its goals, he remains confident in the business strategy that’s been implemented to ensure McGrath is successful.
“Managing growth is a balancing act and really knowing where your constraints may occur ahead of time is critical. I think seeing around the next corner to identify and anticipate opportunities or pitfalls is where I will be focusing a good deal of my time through 2015 and beyond,” stated Wiley.
Wiley will continue to make smart investments into the people and technology as he believes there are opportunities now and in the near future for McGrath to create greater efficiencies to a paper/human intensive business. “Social media and mobile technology will play a large role in our growth strategy going forward,” concludes Wiley.
