Sunnyvale, CA – ATR International, a leading staffing and consulting firm specializing in IT and engineering, has reached its 30th anniversary. Founded on September 14th, 1988, by Jerry Brenholz and Maria Novoa-Brenholz, the organization has grown to become a trusted partner to Fortune 500 companies while placing over 35,000 people in jobs that make a difference.

“We’ve come a long way since the beginning,” said Jerry Brenholz, Co-Founder. “The last 30 years wouldn’t be possible without strong relationships with exceptional talent and businesses that we’ve worked hard to build.”

Both Jerry and Maria immigrated to the United States and began ATR when they realized typical recruiters did not understand the intricacies of IT and engineering roles. Searching for a better, more informative way, they eventually went on to create and implement the staffing industry’s only quality certified recruiting process. This expertise then extended into the accounting and finance, professional, manufacturing, and scientific industries.

“Seeing the steady growth of ATR over the years has been one of the most exciting aspects of my life,” commented Andrea Brenholz, CEO/President. “It’s an honor to work for an extraordinary company that truly cares about people, and I look forward to helping drive ATR forward into the next generation.”

ATR describes its purpose as “making the world a better place, one job at a time” as it strives to deliver the technology that enables business and communities to thrive. With that mentality, it is also a champion of inclusion and diversity, having won numerous awards in the minority business space.

“This company began as a diverse organization and I’m happy to say that has continued for thirty years,” shared Angelique Alvarez, Chief Diversity Relations Officer. “It fills me with pride to know I work for a leader in equality and that we are making a real difference in people’s lives.”

The official 30th anniversary celebration event took place in San Francisco and featured employees from every one of ATR’s seven offices.
