Erin Allen


For over 25 years, Ms. Allen has provided the staffing industry with her marketing, management, and recruiting expertise. She works tirelessly to support and expand the local business community’s development and prosperity by actively participating in networking groups and key issues such as “Ban the Box” and minimum wage legislation.

Since taking over the reins of her familys’ business it was important to her to expand the scope of the business, but also to contribute to the greater good of the community. She recognized that there was lack of community support to help individuals attain their career goals. As such, facilitating a positive job search experience for individuals who have dim expectations for their employment opportunities has been a personal goal and part of the firm’s mission from the outset.

As an organization, Contemporaries has made the success and growth of our employees and their families our responsibility. They feel that every accomplishment and accolade their employees earn reflects directly upon the overall growth and success of their company and clients. Her proudest accomplishment is that each year they successfully place 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.  Since 2003, Contemporaries has been one of the most successful staffing suppliers to the Department of Health and Human Services, including the FDA. In the D.C. metro area, her company 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.

As a longtime member of the business community, Ms. Allen participates in local business outreach and, in addition to serving on multiple boards, she provides executive leadership to multiple organizations.  Ms Allen co-chairs the small business committee for Montgomery Chamber of Commerce and volunteers with the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization.
