Kathy Spearing, President of Brilliant, explains, “We are thrilled to share our 10-year anniversary with our audiences of job seekers, hiring companies and the public, alike, by launching a new website. We consider ourselves innovators and experts within the labor market and make it a point to stay ahead of the changing corporate climate. This new website is a vehicle to ensure that happens.” Spearing continues, “We hope you join us in celebrating this milestone by visiting our new website and partnering with us for your job search or hiring needs as we enter a new decade of business.”
The strategy behind the new website was to modernize the look and feel, improve the accessibility, user-ability and functionality of the site, and attract more visitors in need of the firm’s services.
The new Brilliant website features an enhanced career portal for job seekers to access open positions, a candidate search section for hiring managers and HR professionals to browse available talent, and a library of resources for accounting, finance and IT professionals to view including blogs, market research and trends, salary data, job search best practices, and more.

Spearing continues, “Over the past 10 years, Brilliant has helped more than 6,000 accounting, finance and IT professionals find new jobs and close to 1,500 companies find talent for their teams and projects. We started with an internal team of just 15 and now we’re approaching 100 team members. Witnessing our growth and success has been very exciting!”
The firm has seen success in many ways. Since its inception, Brilliant has received numerous accolades—most notably in 2015 being named the No. 1 fastest-growing company in Chicago by Crain’s Fast 50; also, in 2015, ranking No. 2 on the Staffing Industry Analysts list of fastest-growing staffing firms in the United States; and in 2018, being named the No. 2 Best Recruiting Firm in America by Forbes.
On a staff-level, the 10-year anniversary brings changes in operations as well. Spearing promoted Sagar Pandya, CPA (Inactive) from Practice Director, Financial Search, to a newly created role, VP of Operations. Pandya’s focus is to implement business strategies to impact financial performance, foster organic and inorganic growth, maximize customer and candidate satisfaction, and build sales culture.
Pandya says, “I am excited about this new opportunity, especially as it coincides with such a momentous occasion. Brilliant has built its success by making smart business decisions and helping others. As we scale, I plan to close the gap between our various business units and markets—for optimal communication and performance. I am confident my new role will help bridge our continued success.”
