Harrier named in AFR Fast 100

Total talent management business Harrier Human Capital has today announced they are the 66th fastest growing company in Australia, according to The Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100 list for 2017.

This the first time the organisation has made the list, reporting an average revenue growth of 41.9% over four years. Harrier will now join Fast 100 alumni and household names such as Atlassian, Boost Juice, Cellarmaster, RedBalloon and SEEK.

CEO Kelly Quirk has spearheaded the growth of Harrier since joining in 2012. Under her leadership the business has grown organically and via acquisition, expanded its locations beyond Perth to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Manila and Singapore, diversified its service offering, and on-boarded a number of industry leaders, including the MD of Harrier Talent Solutions Sue Howse.

Quirk said Harrier’s inclusion in the list is testament to the company’s transformation from a Perth-based niche outsourcing business to a national total talent management business.

“I’m incredibly honoured that Harrier has been named as one of Australia’s fastest growing businesses”, she said.

“Since Harrier was founded in 2007, the business has evolved significantly from a small outsourcing company to a firm that provides valuable strategic HR consulting, recruitment, RPO and MSP solutions to national and international clients across all types of industries”.

“We’ve always been proud of the calibre of the people we employ and the quality of work we deliver for our clients and this has not wavered throughout this phase of growth”.

The Fast 100 listing follows other prestigious award wins, including Kelly Quirk’s listings on the SIA Global 100 and Women in Staffing Power 50 lists, WA Business News’ Rising Stars award and personal and professional 40 under 40 accolades, which saw Harrier named the winner of the Professional Services and Strategic Alliance categories.

To qualify for Fast 100, entrants must have commenced trading before July 1, 2013, and provide four years of turnover data, with a minimum of $500,000 in the first reporting period. The AFR seeks verification from external auditors or accountants, and calculates the average annual growth rate over the four periods, which determines its ranking in the Fast 100.
