Akraya Named to 2012 Largest Private Companies in the Bay Area List
Akraya, Inc., an award-winning consulting & staffing firm is proud to announce that it was named to The Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 2012 Largest Private Companies List. Among the other private companies being honored, Akraya was ranked #38.
Akraya was founded by CEO, Amar Panchal and President, Sonu Ratra in 2001. Having worked in the Silicon Valley technology industry for years, the founders clearly saw a gap between client demand and the service offerings of competitor consulting firms. They believed that with its flexible recruiting model focused on candidate quality, faster response time and competitive rates, Akraya could provide far better services than what was available in the market. Over the years, Akraya’s steady growth and high level of customer and consultant retention rates have validated this belief. Today, Akraya is a preferred staffing and consulting partner to many Fortune 500 enterprises. The company reached $39.9MM in annual revenue in 2011.
“It is an honor to be named to the Largest Private Companies List.” said Akraya CEO, Amar Panchal. “Despite the recent downturn, Akraya managed to continue its healthy growth. We enhanced our service offerings and customer support systems, and embraced new technology solutions and social media trends into our recruiting and business development efforts. We also managed to strategically expand our client base to new geographic and industry segments while supporting our current clients with trusted talent.”
