Happy Anniversary! A Letter from Our Founder

September 5, 2012

Today we celebrate fifteen years of success!!!

NextGen Information Services, Inc., was incorporated on September 5, 1997, and has grown into a multi-million dollar recruiting, consulting, and staffing organization. We have been recognized twice by Inc. Magazine as one of the United States’ fastest-growing private companies, most recently in the 2012 Inc. 5000. We have also been recognized for our dedication to workplace diversity by We continue to develop strong relationships with Fortune 500 companies, national and regional firms, and local businesses so that we can bring the best opportunities to highly-skilled professionals all over the country.

While these are great accomplishments, our journey has only begun!

As we celebrate a vibrant past and position ourselves for the next exciting steps in our journey, we would like to take this opportunity to reinforce our corporate branding: Our branding success starts with you. You are often the first impression someone has of our company --- a reinforcement of our customer commitment and the solutions we deliver. Clearly, we are only as good as our people. 

Over the last six months, NextGen has transformed into a new company: we have many new staff members working alongside veteran recruiters to connect niche job openings to the best talent, we are days away from launching a new website that will have helpful information for job seekers and clients, along with a new brand and web presence, and we’ve refocused our sights on finding top talent and supporting them well

For updates and to stay connected we invite you to check us out on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+! Also, stop by the NextGen blog to let us know how the last fifteen years have shaped your career and what you’re looking for next.

Thank you for helping NextGen grow! We’re looking forward to another fifteen years of working together to find success, good work-life balance, and a positive impact on the communities around us!

With great appreciation,

Maria Del Carmen Jacob
