Established in 1998.
LaSalle Network was founded in 1998 by Founder and CEO, Tom Gimbel, who envisioned a professional services firm focused solely on staffing accounting and finance positions, a niche not yet filled in Chicago. With only $1, 000, two employees and less than 1, 200 square feet of office space, Tom, then 26 years old, set forth to change the face of staffing.
Today, LaSalle has over 90 employees and has expanded its accounting and finance focus to include office services, technology, customer service, human resources, marketing and executive search. LaSalle Network is a $35 million privately-owned company based in Chicago with offices in Downtown Chicago, Oakbrook, Arlington Heights and Gurnee. With over 900% growth, LaSalle was ranked on the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America List in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
