ICONMA founder Claudine George spent several years working in the IT field through various staffing firms, according to a recent article in Crain’s Detroit Business. However, George decided she wanted to be her own boss and founded her staffing firm in 2000.
Last year, she posted about $89 million in revenue, and this year, she’s projecting more than $100 million.
“I can help people get into jobs (temporary and permanent) they are seeking (through) connections with Fortune 500 companies across the country,” George says in the article.
The article chronicles George’s early years and her struggles building ICONMA, including hiring recruiters and salespeople.
“I had to make a sacrifice (to meet) their salary demands, borrow money from family and handle the fact they were making more than me,” she says in the article. “I was betting on them, and they didn’t let me down.”
