AvantGarde’s Year in Numbers
As we come to the end of a very prosperous 2022 here at AvantGarde, we thought we’d take a look back and celebrate some of our achievements and milestones. Here are some of our favorite numbers that came from this past year:
6 New Clients
AvantGarde is proud to have been contracted by 6 new clients this year who recognize our expertise in integrated Human Capital solutions and services and value our reputation as a trusted vendor who truly cares about our people and our clients.
In 2022 AvantGarde achieved an astounding 20% growth, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our team in winning over new contracts and expanding our work with existing clients.
12 Federal Agencies Served
As a long-standing partner of the federal government, we are honored to have served dozens of clients among 12 federal agencies in 2022, including the U.S. Department of Transportation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Treasury.
10 Scholarships Sponsored
AvantGarde helped sponsor 10 scholarships this year for the Girls of Legacy initiative, benefiting Austin, Texas inner city high school students who – thanks to the scholarship funding - were able to enroll in the higher education of their choice this past fall. We are looking forward to continuing the support for these promising young women and men in 2023.
200+ Ukrainian Families Evacuated to Safety
As the fighting in Ukraine intensified, AvantGarde reached out to support the people of Ukraine by providing ongoing funding for evacuation vehicles to bring over 200 families to safety, which is proving even more critical during the bitter cold winter months.

#6 and #11 Ranked
AvantGarde was listed at #6 on the Ethnic-Minority Owned Businesses List in the Austin Business Journal and #11 on the Women-Owned Businesses List.
2 Awards Won
AvantGarde’s CEO Rebecca Contreras won 2 Stevies during the Global Women in Business Awards this year. She won Gold for Best Female Entrepreneur and Silver for Woman of the Year. Congratulations, Rebecca!
All of the growth, giving, and recognition this past year couldn’t have been accomplished without the amazing team at AvantGarde, which now stands at 100+ employees. Our motto, “People First, Client Always,” has driven our core values and helped create a team of exceptional HR professionals focused on solutions for all our clients’ evolving Human Capital needs.
From AvantGarde CEO Rebecca Contreras: I am thrilled to ring in the new year with a look back at all our team achieved for 2022. Greg and I are incredibly proud of each and every team member working so hard to deliver excellence to our clients as well as the senior team and the development that embraces a keen focus on the importance of growing. As the company grows, we are provided with new and expanded opportunities for our team to grow in their own personal career at AG. During last week of 2022, we are particularly proud of re-acquiring our former long-term client at USPTO! AG held a human capital contract with USPTO and lost it six years ago, but securing them again as a client in December just before we closed out the year proves that our strategy of staying the course to do the right thing by our client (even in loss), keeping a focus on excellence and relationships, as well as building a reputation of being a trusted advisor is always a recipe for success. We thank USPTO for the trust to return and serve. I want to wish everyone at AG and our loyal clients a very happy and prosperous new year!
With 2022 and its “wins” now on the books, we look forward to building on this success as we head into 2023. Be sure to follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook to keep in touch in the new year!
