Acertitude Recognized on Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Second Consecutive Year

NEW YORK (August 16, 2022) – Acertitude, the global executive search firm committed to unleashing human potential, is thrilled to announce, for the second year in a row, its recognition on the Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list serves as the most thorough catalog of entrepreneurial-minded innovators and has included exceptional alumni such as Microsoft, Intuit, LinkedIn, Oracle, and Stripe in past years. 

“It is a great honor for Acertitude to again join the ranks of America’s top private companies.  This reflects our team’s steadfast hard work and dedication to empowering clients with brilliant leaders, especially through uncertain times,” said Kevin O’Neill, Acertitude's co-founder and managing partner. “We could not have done this without our loyal clients, too, and this award goes to them in appreciation.” 

“Our continued growth and momentum in the market reaffirms our culture of working to deliver superior results and service, and we will keep striving every day to achieve more than we did the previous day,” added O’Neill. “We are committed to building win-win relationships with our clients, candidates, team-members, and others in the industry. We are excited for the future of Acertitude as we continue to challenge, encourage, and inspire ourselves and others to unleash their highest potential.”

Rick DeRose, fellow co-founder and managing partner, said, “It is a privilege to be recognized by Inc. two years in a row. We are standing next to the world’s entrepreneurial giants, those that are also rapidly scaling companies. We share the prestige with our loyal clients and well-deserving team, who consistently and confidently show up to unleash their human potential and grow our company in the United States, in Europe, and around the world.”

Over the past three years, against headwinds of the pandemic, Acertitude hit a market-leading growth rate of 170%, securing the #3161 spot on the list. The firm also maintained a best-in-class client net promoter score of +82 while expanding its client base across all practices in the U.S. and abroad: business & professional services, consumer, energy, financial services, healthcare & life sciences, industrial, private equity, social impact, and technology.
