MCLEAN, Va., February 22, 2022 – Executives from Digital Intelligence Systems, LLC (DISYS) and Signature Consultants (Signature) have once again been recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) for excellence in leadership. This is the fifth time DISYS and Signature CEO, Mahfuz Ahmed has been named to SIA’s Staffing 100 North America list while Signature’s Founder Dr. Jay Cohen has been inducted into SIA’s Staffing 100 Hall of Fame.
The Staffing 100 North America list is a prestigious recognition awarded to those in the industry who have made an impact on their company or the ecosystem, be it with an idea for a new work arrangement, product or a leadership effort that resulted in increased revenue. The SIA Staffing 100 Hall of Fame is reserved for those who have dedicated themselves to the advancement of the staffing industry for many years, and thus have been named to the annual Staffing 100 North America list several consecutive times.
In 2021, Ahmed and Cohen were in a unique position to elevate their organizations by combining the two IT staffing powerhouses. Bonding over common principles, such as their “employee-first” beliefs, their commitment to leading with kindness and empathy, and tendencies to innovate and follow their own path, in April 2021 they led their organizations through a successful acquisition and integration that has gleaned dynamic results.
Recently, the combined enterprise announced that both entities were once again recognized by SIA on their 2021 lists of Largest US IT Staffing Firms and Largest US Staffing Firms. Together they have more than $1 billion in revenue and over 10,000 employees and consultants supporting clients worldwide. With their combined annual revenues in 2021, the enterprise would rank as the 7th largest staffing firm in the US, a distinction built through a shared culture and purpose, investment in top talent, world-class training, and expanded expertise and capabilities to serve their clients.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by SIA and to be named to the Staffing 100 once again,” said Mahfuz Ahmed, CEO of DISYS and Signature Consultants. “Congratulations to Dr. Jay Cohen on his induction to the Staffing 100 Hall of Fame. It’s been a tremendous experience to work side-by-side with Dr. Cohen on our unique journey together. We committed to managing this acquisition our way, without causing disruptions, which led our combined organization to experience our greatest growth year ever. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together and our ability to stay true to a culture of innovation that is driven by values and actions as we move forward on our path to becoming a top 5 firm in the industry.”
Cohen, who now serves as the chief strategy officer for DISYS and Signature, founded Signature Consultants in 1997 with a focus on developing strong relationships and treating people well — values that led to the company’s standing on SIA’s Largest US IT Staffing Firms, Fastest-Growing US Staffing Firms and Best Staffing Firms to Work For lists multiple years running. Cohen is well-known for his dedication to mentorship and guiding others forward for the betterment of the staffing industry. His induction into the SIA Staffing 100 Hall of Fame reflects the lasting impact he has made on the world of work and the staffing industry throughout his illustrious career.
