HOUSTON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Murray Resources, a leading Houston recruiting firm, announced today that it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in the United States. The company has made the list four of the last five years.

The Inc. 5000 list ranks private companies according to percentage revenue growth, with the 2017 list based on the % increase in revenue between 2013 and 2016. Past Inc. 5000 companies have included Intuit, LinkedIn, Zappos, FitBit, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Dell, Oracle, and hundreds of other notable alumni.

“Being named to the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth time in five years is a wonderful accomplishment for our team and a direct reflection of the exceptional work they do for our employers and candidates every day. When I started Murray Resources I had a vision of creating a recruiting firm based on respect—respect for clients who trust us to help them build their teams, and respect for candidates who turn to us at critical points in their careers and lives. It’s particularly satisfying that the original vision has translated into significant growth and long-term success for our candidates, employers, and employees,” said Marsha Murray, the company’s founder and president.

“The Inc. 5000 recognition is a wonderful accomplishment for our team, but we also know we’re just getting started. In the last 18 months, we’ve added light industrial to our recruiting product mix, launched a career coaching service that is now working with candidates across the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and opened our 3rdbrick and mortar location in the Houston market. We anticipate the next 18-24 months to be a period of continued high-growth for the company,” said Keith Wolf, Murray Resources’ managing director.

Almost 30 years later, the firm has grown to count over 800 companies as clients, including twelve Fortune™ 1000 organizations.
