Nationally Recognized Firm with Charlotte, NC Roots Enjoys Milestone Business Anniversary with Continued Expansion

PRESS RELEASE CHARLOTTE, N.C. – February 21, 2019 – Charlotte-headquartered CEO Inc. is celebrating its 25th year in the recruitment and staffing industry in 2019 while enjoying continued growth across all companies and an expanded presence for its nationally-recognized retained and contingent search services.

The current iteration of the award-winning firm began in 1994 when owner and CEO Debby Millhouse acquired what was then a small, regional staffing and recruitment firm and began to expand the company’s target markets and regional reach.  The evolution included a focus on direct hire placement for senior-level sales, operational and management positions for plastics, composites, textiles and specialty chemical companies nationwide. The expansion continued in 2014 as CEO Inc. launched sister company Xcentri to complement the rapid growth of its temporary staffing and permanent placement services for accounting/finance, office support, call center/customer service, and non-clinical medical positions.  In January 2019 CEO Inc. expanded further by announcing the formation of its legal staffing company, Xcentri Legal, to meet the growing demands of its legal recruitment services.  Xcentri Legal works exclusively with legal professionals, placing individuals at all levels in direct hire, temp-to-hire and temporary positions at firms ranging from solo practitioners to large law firms in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.

Over the past 25 years, CEO Inc. and its sister companies have received several national and local awards.  Top honors include being named to the Inc.5000 “Fastest Growing Companies” List for 2016-17, along with the Charlotte Business Journal’s Best Places to Work Award for 5 times (2012-15, 2018) and the journal’s “50 Fastest Growing Companies” for 2015.

While the awards and recognition are certainly important to the organization, what matters most are the satisfied clients and candidates across the country that the CEO Inc. team has had the good fortune of working with over the years, says CEO and owner Debby Millhouse.  “What drives us every day is a simple mission; center on people and seek to find the perfect fit for our clients and candidates alike.  This has been our focus from Day One in the business and this philosophy has served us very well over the past 25 years.  I’ve been very fortunate to have talented team members that have been with us through this amazing journey that truly believe in the mission and as a result, have made us a successful organization in our space and a place where people enjoy coming to work every day.  As we celebrate 25 years in the business, I’m grateful to work with such a talented team over the years and I am thankful for the loyal clients that have chosen to work with us.”
