2022 was an interesting year. Private Equity investments and take overs drove hiring, especially in the financial technology, manufacturing and medical capital verticals. Start up and growth company expansions were the drivers, the Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 seemed to hold back on any major expansions. More people seemed interested in leaving the large corporates for the start ups and growth companies.
Our activity was focused on a select group of building products manufacturers, several disruptive technology medical capital and device manufacturers, bank technologies, restaurant/hospitality technologies and cyber security.
Hiring remained brisk through the year, though we began to sense and hear of slow downs to come as we headed into December.
