We’re excited to be included on Built In Chicago’s Top 100 list,” said Adam Ferguson, Sr. VP of Client Engagement. “It’s especially exciting to be the top-rated solution provider on the list. As a consulting firm, it’s challenging to balance growth with culture while putting our clients’ success first, and that’s something we’ve been able to do well. We’re all excited to continue this smart growth in 2018 as we evolve with the market.

Chicago’s 100 biggest digital tech companies alone employ nearly 48,000 people, up from 41,000 in 2016. The number of people employed by Chicago’s biggest tech companies rose 15 percent between 2016 and 2017. Competition to make the Top 100 list tightened as the Chicago industry saw a year-over-year growth rate of 17 percent.

When it comes to IT talent, the Chicago market is extremely competitive,” noted Anna Greer, who heads Recruiting for SWC. “It’s because of our team that we are able to make lists like this. I truly believe we have the most innovative and dedicated team in the market today.
