*SECOND YEAR HONOREE*
Larry Weinberg joined Accounting Career Consultants in 1997 after spending three years with one of the Big 4 CPA firms. He quickly became the office’s top billing consultant and, before long, was breaking most of the company’s production records.
Within three years, he had taken on a management role in the organization. By July 2012, he became president by completing the purchase of the company from his father, Mel, after 15 years of working together.
Accounting Career Consultants & HR Career Consultants is a recruiting and staffing firm that offers direct-hire and temporary placement specializing in accounting, finance and human resource positions in and around the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Working through the pandemic and the Great Resignation, the company has realized a three-year growth rate of 116%. Today it has earned a place on the Inc. 5000 list, recognizing the fastest-growing companies in America.
“Our core purpose is helping people reach their potential,” Weinberg said. “One of the most rewarding things for me personally about our company growth is that it allows us to have a positive impact on the careers and lives of more candidates, clients and our internal employees.
The company helps clients and job candidates in multiple ways:
Helping candidates who are out of work find a great career opportunity
Helping employed candidates improve their careers and lives by offering them exposure to career-enhancing opportunities that they may not have otherwise known about or pursued
Helping hiring managers place high-performing talent on their team
Helping clients add team members who can better manage the workload to create better work-life balance
Plus, Weinberg said, the firm offers its own employees great career opportunities with control to grow their own compensation.
Weinberg is looking to the future. The company recently restructured its management team to keep up with the pace of growth. Up next, he’s thinking about succession planning so the company is ready for new leadership in five to 10 years.
“We are proud of our 37+ year track record of serving the St. Louis business market,” he said, “and want to make sure that we set the company up to continue to grow and provide high-quality recruiting and staffing services to the St. Louis community for years to come.”
Being recognized as a Titan 100 has been a big honor to me. To be recognized along such a prestigious list of companies and executives having an impact in the St. Louis area is a huge honor. The greatest platform so far has been the recognition and networking opportunities. I look forward to continuing this involvement in the future. Thanks for the opportunity!
