Michael Gionta opened his firm, The Hudson Group, in early 1990. Between 1990 and 1996 Michael cashed-in $1 million as a billing manager. Frustrated, and wanting more, he drastically changed his approach to both the client and candidate side of the business. The result?
Michael cashed in over $5.6 million between late 1996 and the end of 2001, when he came off a desk. During that time, he ranked as a top 10 billing manager three times in the Management Recruiters International system, ranking as high as second in 2000 with cash in on his desk in excess of $2 million. In 2001, Michael made the strategic decision to grow his firm instead of developing his individual recruiting practice. Training his team on the techniques that launched him, he developed an office that ranks in the top 3% of MRI offices. He was ranked the eleventh fastest growing IT search firm in the country.
