Executive Search Review doubled down on its national recognition of Charles Aris Inc. in May.

Charles Aris generated 11.3 percent year-over-year revenue growth in 2018, the organization’s seventh consecutive year of record revenue.

Doubling its 2019 rankings power, Charles Aris also earned a spot in the Hunt Scanlon Private Equity Recruiting Power 75, a collection of the best recruiting firms nationwide serving both deal-side and buy-side partnerships in the private equity space.

“Charles Aris is extremely proud to once again be recognized as one of the thirty largest executive search firms in the United States,” said CEO Chad Oakley. “Our fifty-two team members work incredibly hard to deliver world class talent to each of our clients, and last year was no exception as we completed 163 searches across our seven functional and 11 industry practices. We’re excited to make 2019 even better!”
