Corporate Executive Board
2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC 20006
''There is no other group of people with whom I'd rather work.''
We hear this refrain often at the Corporate Executive Board (CEB), voted as one of Washington, DC's Best Places to Work in Washingtonian Magazine. We are proud of the quality of our staff and are looking to add talented, dynamic people to our (growing) ranks. In September 2003 CEB made Fortune's list of 100 Fastest Growing Companies in the US; we also ranked # 13th on Business Week's list of Hot Growth Companies for 2003. And, consistent with the staff comment above, we feel the primary driver behind these accolades (and the underlying business achievements) is the quality of the staff we hire and develop over time.
