Apex Systems was founded in 1995 by Brian Callaghan, Win Sheridan and Jeff Veatch, three friends who met at Virginia Tech. They were inspired to start Apex for three main reasons – to treat job seekers better, to provide a superior service for companies, and to build a company where the best recruiters and sales staff would want to work.
The Founders felt too many recruiters weren’t treating job seekers the right way. They failed to return calls. They didn’t give closure. They misrepresented the job. It was a frustrating perception of the staffing industry, so they set out to change it.
The Founders established strong core values of doing the right thing, making others better, finding an enhanced way to get the job done and setting the professional standard. These are the guiding principles that Apex employees use to provide the highest level of service to customers and contract employees.
Apex has grown to be over an $800 million dollar company with a nationwide presence in 54 markets, 1,250 clients and over 1,000 internal employees. The company is now embarking on the next phase of growth by joining On Assignment, a leading publicly-traded professional staffing firm specializing in the growing information technology, life sciences, and healthcare sectors. The combined company is the second-largest IT staffing firm in the U.S. Additional information regarding On Assignment and the services they offer can be found on their website
