As president, Ranjini Poddar has guided Artech Information Systems LLC through several iterations over the last 15 years, ranging from a company that was a localized, direct business partner to its clients to a centralized, high-volume provider of talent via dynamic MSP/VMS models. Artech ranks among the largest diversity staffing firms in the U.S. and is No. 12 on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of largest U.S. information technology staffing firms. Despite its size, Artech still ranks on the list of fastest-growing U.S. staffing firms. Recently, the Cedar Knolls, N.J.–based firm launched a veterans hiring program.
