History In 1969, Martin E. Judge, Jr. accepted a job at a staffing company, placing people in full-time positions. He felt passionate about the work and realized immediate success, but something was missing. After one year and a long talk with his father, Marty decided to go into business for himself. Armed with encouragement, a $2,000 loan, and an entrepreneurial spirit (all from Dad), Marty set out to establish a permanent placement staffing company in Northeast Philadelphia, founding what we now know as The Judge Group. From its original two employees in 1970, Judge continued to rapidly expand its offerings into new industries, new states and even new countries over the next 45+ years, and now has over 500 employees in-house. In 1982, Judge Computer was started as a service company for schools and businesses. By 1984, the company was making Judge XT computers. At the peak of production in 1990, Judge was making 10,000 units per year. After 15 years of building a successful permanent placement business, Marty felt it was time to expand Judge’s service offerings and explore the growing contract staffing market. By January of 1986, Judge Technical Staffing was formed. From 1986 to 1996, Judge experienced 30% growth each year. In 1988, Judge Imaging Systems was started as a document management and imaging reseller and solutions company. In 1996, the company expanded its portfolio of services by acquiring Berkeley Training, a company based in Philadelphia. A year later, in order to accelerate growth, Judge completed an initial public offering and became publicly traded on the NASDAQ. After seven years as a public company, Marty Judge bought back The Judge Group and reverted to private ownership. No longer having shareholders, the company focused on investing in its two biggest assets – its clients and its people. Judge put a plan in place to aggressively expand its national footprint, bringing its enhanced services to clients across the country. In order to better serve its clients’ project-based needs, the company launched the Judge Consulting Group in 2006. Two years later, Judge expanded its IT solution offering by starting Judge Unified Communications. Then, to tap into one of the hottest emerging markets around the globe, Judge pursued a joint venture with a U.S./China outsourcing company to create JudgeOrchestrall in 2010. In 2011, the company continued its international expansion by entering the Toronto, Canada market. After buying majority shares in JudgeOrchestrall in 2011, Judge began realigning the business as Judge China, which offers contract staffing, direct hire and vendor management services. In September 2016, The Judge Group launched Judge India, located in the city of Noida, a key component of Judge’s global delivery strategy. In October 2016, Judge relocated its global headquarters to a 90,000 sq. ft. world class building in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Today, The Judge Group operates in four countries with over 35 office locations in the United States and abroad, offering services across three major verticals: Technology, Talent and Learning Solutions.
