Erin Allen

Erin Allen

President
For over 25 years, Erin has provided the staffing industry with her marketing, management and recruiting expertise. Erin actively supports the business community by participating in networking groups and researching strategic employment issues.

When Erin became President of the family business, it was important to her to expand the scope of the business and to contribute to the greater good of the community. Erin believes in opportunity. She realizes that by facilitating a positive job search, she can help others succeed. With each success, the mission and vision of Contemporaries is realized.

The philosophy behind Contemporaries is centered on the success and growth of its employees and their families. Each accomplishment and accolade earned by employees reflects directly upon the overall growth and success of the company and clients. Erin feels that the proudest accomplishment is that each year Contemporaries successfully places over 350 employees in new positions.

Under her leadership, Contemporaries, Inc., a small woman-owned business, has thrived. It has consistently served as the largest provider of staffing services to the National Institutes of Health under their small business program.  Contemporaries has grown to become one of the most successful staffing suppliers to the Department of Health and Human Services, including the FDA. In the D.C. metro area, Contemporaries is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 venders under the GSA Federal Supply Schedule 736 and has been recognized as one of the Top 100 “Small Businesses of the Year” by the state of Maryland. In 2017, Contemporaries was named an Honoree for the SmartCEO Washington Family Business Award.

Erin also provides executive leadership to multiple organizations and serves on various boards.  She co-chairs the small business committee for Montgomery Chamber of Commerce and volunteers with the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization.
