Matt Briand, President and CEO, added, “Across our subsidiaries in the US and the UK, we have been deploying numerous sales initiatives as the end of the calendar year traditionally marks the busiest time of year for our seasonal workers. With an extremely active 2016 now behind us, I can’t say enough about the hard work and dedication of our employees that have made our double digit growth a reality. We look forward to sharing more details shortly when we announce our full financials in the coming weeks.”
