We are proud to announce that Riviera Partners, Silicon Valley’s premiere Executive and Technical Search firm, has been named to the Inc. 5000 List for the first time! In our first year of application, Inc. magazine has ranked us as the 2293rd fastest-growing company out of the estimated 7 million private, employee based firms in America. We were also recognized as No. 90 in the San Francisco Metro Area; our friends at Demandforce, Location Labs, oDesk and Tagged were also included in these rankings! As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Riviera Partners shares a prestigious place with some of America's most successful businesses.
Three years ago, Riviera Partners was a team of 13 recruiters working out of a single office. Today, we're practically bursting at the seams! Our multi-office headquarters is nearly full and our team is quickly approaching 50 people! While our company's growth is no doubt exciting, what we find ourselves most proud of is our employees and their dedication to Riviera's company vision. The experience that our team provides is second to none, and our clients and candidates have come to recognize the quality search that we consistently provide.
The 2011 Inc. 500 list measures revenue growth from 2007 through 2010. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies, with at least $2,000,000 in revenues as of December 31, 2010, and have at least $100,000 in net sales in 2007. Our ranking was determined by Inc. based on a three-year trend of positive growth (106 percent) and a 2010-closing revenue exceeding $5.5 million. The recent tech boom has created a huge demand for Riviera’s services in the talent acquisition marketplace and our firm continues to grow to meet our clients' needs.
