Lombard, IL, United States, 2009/03/06 - Medix Staffing Solutions, Inc., a staffing company specialized in recruiting personnel for clients in the healthcare, insurance and scientific industries, recently made another appearance in the pages of Crain’s Chicago Business.
A few short months after Medix was listed in Crain’s as the seventh fastest-growing company in the Chicago-metro area, the company was again featured in the article, “Recession Successes: How They Did It.”
The article, which ran in November, highlighted the stories of three different companies that embarked on business initiatives during economic recessions. The article follows their plights and highlights how these companies still thrived during these trying times.
The editorial began with Medix’s Chief Executive Officer Andrew Limouris’s accounts of the difficult initial years that founded his now flourishing company. “My parents originally said, ‘You’re crazy- everyone’s losing their jobs, the economy’s terrible. This is not something that is going to work,’” said Limouris.
Despite his parents’ warnings, Limouris went forward with his business plan, and he and his company made it through the economic recession of 2001-2002. After a couple years with only seven employees and 14-by-12 office space, Medix’s success began to multiply at a rapid rate. By 2003, the company expanded to earn $2.6 million in revenue. Over the next four years, Medix’s revenue soared to $26.9 million in 2007, marking a 930 percent growth.
“We are thrilled that the story of our company’s success could be shared with other business people through Crains,” said Limouris. “I hope it gives motivation for other entrepreneurs to follow their dreams, even when the economy isn’t cooperating. With the right team and a great deal of perseverance, anything is possible.”
