IRVINE, California, September 8, 2016 – McDermott & Bull, the 29th largest executive search firm in the Americas and the fastest-growing firm within the Hunt Scanlon Top 50 Recruiters list, realized a growth of 159% during the first half of 2016 as compared to the same period last year.

“2016 has proven to be an exceptional year for McDermott & Bull,” said Rod McDermott, the firm’s Managing Partner.  “Between our Executive Search and Interim Leaders practices, we are armed to address both the permanent and temporary requirements of our clients across various industries and functional roles.  Although we are thrilled to boast an over 150% growth figure, we are unwavering in our effort to set the bar even higher as we take on new opportunities and challenges throughout the rest of this year and into 2017.”

Part of McDermott & Bull’s success can be attributed to its talent acquisition activities and penetration into new territories.  Over the past year, the firm has broadened its reach with the addition of several consultants in markets such as Los Angeles, Portland, and Denver.
