AEBetancourt (AEB) was recently recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the second consecutive year, proving "recruiting-as-a-service" as a valid alternative to traditional recruitment. The annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

AEB secured the #2440 position overall, and #106 in the Human Resources Companies category. AEB ranked #44 in Michigan and #13 in Grand Rapids. Making the Inc. 5000 list for a second consecutive year underscores the firm’s unwavering commitment to delivering unparalleled services to both clients and candidates alike. 

 “We are honored to once again secure a spot on the Inc. 5000 list,” said Art Betancourt, CEO of AEBetancourt. “This milestone reflects the collective efforts of our exceptional team and the trust that our clients and partners place in us. Our commitment to sourcing top talent for organizations, coupled with our dedication to delivering tailor-made solutions, has been instrumental in our consistent growth.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.” 

“AEBetancourt's success is proof to us that "Recruiting-as-a-Service" is a valid alternative to traditional recruitment,” Betancourt elaborated. “Recruiting is a $105 billion industry with the same level of satisfaction as a cable company — which means we’ve made it our mission to consistently stay ahead of industry trends and leverage the best technologies and methodologies to ensure our clients secure the best possible candidates. Making it onto the Inc. 5000 list only motivates us to set the bar even higher in terms of excellence.”
