In 2002, Patty Comer and Amy Pack met early in their careers at an international staffing and search firm where they grew together through the ranks of the organization. They were constantly traveling across the nation to manage accounts, branches, and regions. After starting families, they decided to start their own firm with a focus on high touch relationship building. Today, that focus on relationships has become the core of AccruePartners and its tagline: “Building People, Companies, and Careers.”


They sought to make a significant impact on the industry by investing in the relationships that most agencies cold-shouldered as transactions versus serious career and organizational investments. They understood the importance of developing long-term connections between all stakeholders to create added value for everyone involved; their principal mantra being “candidates become clients and clients become candidates.” Soon enough, and with a little help from a generous investor, they were able to form their humble 2-person partnership in Charlotte, NC. Over the years, AccruePartners saw exponential growth as Patty & Amy cultivated countless relationships across the Queen City. Their unwavering commitment to make an impact by working with passion & purpose every day launched AccruePartners to the forefront of the staffing industry.


Today, AccruePartners is one of Charlotte’s Largest Staffing Agencies and is renowned for being one of Charlotte’s “Best Places to Work” and a six-year recipient of “Inavero’s Best of Staffing Award.” With a continued eye on growth, the company has been listed as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America nine times by Inc. 5000. As they continue to experience extraordinary growth, Patty and Amy have stayed true to their values. They work diligently to ensure that the core values that started the company and attributed to its success are instilled in every employee, candidate, and client interaction across what is today a nation-wide organization.


AccruePartners is confident in its future in the staffing industry. The combination of being headquartered in Charlotte, NC, one of the fastest-growing cities in America, continued low unemployment numbers and record numbers of boomers retiring make for the perfect combination for AccruePartners, its employees, candidates, clients, and suppliers to excel.
