Craig Reilly, Founder and CEO
Founded in 2005
ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Craig Reilly is an entrepreneur with more than 30 years of experience in operations management, sales and corporate strategy leadership. In 2005, he founded PlusOne Solutions, one of only a few nationally accredited background screening agencies in the U.S. The Orlando-based company offers a comprehensive suite of services designed to reduce the probability of hiring potentially high-risk contractors and vendors.
The company currently has 52 employees and has ambitious plans to continue to grow, currently serving clients throughout the United States and Canada. Reilly credits GrowFL with helping propel the company’s expansion to a $100 million company. In 2008, Reilly joined CEO Nexus after attending a CEO Nexus Forum, offered in conjunction with the Edward Lowe Foundation and designed specifically for leaders of second-stage companies.
“The peer group at CEO Nexus has enabled me to bounce ideas off the group and to hear how others have handled similar situations, and the potential pitfalls that should be avoided,” Reilly said. “Being part of it has helped me transition from working ‘in’ the business to ‘on’ the business and to look forward to ensure I have the ‘right person in the right seat at the right time’ so that the business can continue to grow.”
ABOUT THE AWARD:
CEO Nexus, in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship at Rollins College, Florida High Tech Corridor Council and GrowFL, brings together leaders of established growth-oriented businesses in a confidential setting to meet and learn from CEO peers who have grown their companies into more advanced stages of business development. The CEO Nexus Cup is a traveling trophy and member-recognition award, recognizing those companies that have achieved growth and entrepreneurial success, in part due to their collaboration with CEO Nexus.
