Local Recruitment Firm Lands in Forbes Top 25


Accent Professional Recruiting Moves Up Forbes’ Annual List of Top-Rated National Recruitment Firms


Richmond, Jul 31, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Accent Professional Recruiting, a nationwide search, and recruiting firm specializing in placing sales, marketing and management talent, is proud to announce its ranking within the top 25 on two industry-specific Forbes lists--America's Best Professional Recruiting Firms (#12, up from #14 in 2019) and America's Best Executive Recruiting Firms (#23).

While the Forbes rankings are primarily comprised of large national organizations with multiple offices across the country, Accent runs a single lean operation based in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Owned and operated by Brooke Hall, who purchased the business from mentor Steve Barley last year, Accent is staffed by a small group of seasoned recruiters. Hall, who worked for Accent for 10 years prior to buying the business, manages many of the firm's clients herself.

As Covid-19 continues to shutter businesses and render many workers jobless, Hall has found that strong hiring needs remain: "Very few clients have asked me to put the brakes on hiring," she says. "The majority want to hire through the pandemic but are aware that the process may take longer. If a client has open roles, we encourage them to at least start engaging talent now, because everyone will be dipping into the same talent pool when hiring dollars to begin flowing again."

Hall notes that she's eager to keep growing the business and continue building on Accent's 46-year track record, and hopes to see the firm's reputation and ranking continue to rise. "We have an incredibly thorough process, great referral sources, and a tight network because of our long history," she said. "Those elements are priceless."

Forbes Ranking Criteria

Forbes partners with market research company Statista to determine its annual ranking of America's best professional recruiting firms. The top 250 professional search firms focused on placing positions with salaries of less than $100,000. The top 200 executive search firms specialized in filling positions with salaries of at least $100,000.

Aug 4, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Aug 4, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Aug 4, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Aug 4, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Aug 4, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
