Signature Consultants, (www.sigconsult.com), a leading IT staffing and consulting firm, announces its 15th year in business. The company was founded in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in 1996 by Jay Cohen and has since expanded to 16 offices coast-to-coast.
“When we started this company our goal was never to be the biggest in our industry, but the best,” said Cohen, Signature’s president and CEO. “We always figured that if we lived by the guiding principle of ‘Do the Right Thing’ we would achieve success.”
In 2011 and 2012, Signature Consultants was selected as the “#1 Staffing Firm to Work For in the United States” by the Staffing Industry Analysts, a strategic thought leader in the staffing community. For four consecutive years, Signature Consultants has been named one of the Top Ten “Best Places to Work” in Charlotte by the Charlotte Business Journal and Business Leader Magazine named it “Business Leader of the Year for IT Services” in 2011.
“In my mind, the awards are a validation that what we have been doing over the past 15 years has worked,” said Cohen. “When you put people first, you can never lose.”
Signature Consultants business model focuses on relationships with their clients and consultants, organic growth, and activity within the community.
“Simply put, our success has been the result of partnering with our clients and supporting them,” said Senior Vice President of Sales Geoff Gray. “We have always been focused on the relationship more than the transaction. We invest a lot of time and resources into building long term relationships with our clients and consultants and that’s why I believe they look at us much differently.”
Today, the company has grown to become the 24th largest and one of the most respected IT staffing and consulting firms in the country. It has more than 1,200 internal staff and consultants working nationwide. In 2010, Signature opened four offices in San Francisco, CA, Des Moines, IA, Minneapolis, MN and Scottsdale, AZ to support a major banking client.
