Janice Bryant Howroyd’s Business is in The Cusp Of $3 BILLION in Revenues

By next year, at her firm ActOne Group, Janice Bryant Howroyd has ambitious plans to boost revenue to $3 billion. If achieved, this would be a sales benefit of $200 million for the nation’s largest woman-minority-owned full-service staffing agency.

Howroyd’s company is a BE 100s business that holds the No. 2 spot on the annual Black Enterprise ranking of America’s largest black-owned businesses. It retained the rating for 2018 and 2017 with $2.8 billion in annual sales. She outlines development resources and tactics for her California-based company in this month’s new book, Acting Up: Success In Business and Life Using Down-Home Advice (Lioncrest Publishing, $22.99).

“We are a community of businessmen at the ActOne Group together working on the assumption that we are winning together,” says Howroyd. “The key thing is to have an integrated group of decision-makers who commit to it once a decision has been made.”

For more than 40 years, a businesswoman and entrepreneur, Howroyd is the first black woman to break her company’s billion-dollar revenue mark. Her book provides an inside look at how she made the transition from humble beginnings to becoming one of the richest African American women in the country with a fortune of $400 million, growing up in a family of 11 children in the segregated South.

She has evolved into a top executive in the multi-billion-dollar workforce. Her company is a global enterprise that provides employment, labor and procurement solutions to a wide range of industries, Fortune 500 organizations, local and mid-market enterprises, and government agencies. It operates in 19 states, has 17,00 clients and more than 2,600 people are employed.
