Why Clients Choose Us

Robert L. Brown
Chairman of the Board

ACA Talent owes much of its recent growth to Robert L. Brown, who joined the company in 2006 as Chairman of the Board and investor, eventually acquiring the company outright in 2007. As a founder of one of the country's largest employer services providers, Mr. Brown brought with him 30 years of experience leading and growing recruitment firms.

Throughout his career, Mr. Brown had taken a hands-on, entrepreneurial approach to business strategy, as he developed teams and executed new business initiatives. Mr. Brown helped bring additional structure to ACA Talent through his invaluable experience and his business philosophies. His formula for success was based on his strong belief in striving to exceed customer expectations, and hiring "eagles"-highly skilled individuals-to do so. He also cared deeply about his employees, and endeavored to create an environment in which they could thrive.

His experience allowed Mr. Brown to guide ACA Talent and its many employees through one of the worst recessions in recent history. Always action-oriented and driven by achievement, Mr. Brown championed ACA Talent's growth strategy, resulting in the company's sharp increase in revenue generation, profitability, and financial stability.
