Star Staffing celebrates 25 years

Star Staffing is marking 25 years in operation. The women-run and women-owned business grew as an idea formed at the founder’s kitchen table.

“Being in business for 25 years is a challenge,” says CEO Lisa Lichty, who credits the company’s success to a driven and strategic team and the support of its surrounding communities. “Star has always risen to the ever-changing challenges of the industry — building strategic relationships that have lasted the test of time.”

The recruiting company now has eight locations and 55 employees with offices in Sacramento, Modesto, Fairfield, Napa, Lodi, Hayward, Petaluma and Santa Rosa.

Nicole Smartt Serres joined the company in 2009 as its third owner. The company now has $40 million in annual sales and has been on Forbes Americas Best Recruiting & Temporary Staffing award winner list and was recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S.
