The Forty Under 40 award serves to recognize forty of the states most dynamic business leaders under the age of 40. NJBIZ searches out leaders who are not only making headlines, but who are also clearly committed to professional and community growth.

Colin Day founded iCIMS in Hazlet, NJ in 1999. Since its inception, iCIMS has aimed to provide corporations with a unique solution for managing their human resource initiatives. Seeing corporations struggle with overly complex, costly, and inflexible options, Day envisioned something different for clients: an easy-to-use Talent Platform that could allow companies to scale a single web-based application to accommodate their evolving business needs. Strong values for product ease-of-use and customer satisfaction have continued to set iCIMS apart in a highly competitive market.
iCIMS has since become a leading provider of talent management software, supporting over 600 companies worldwide. The companys easy-to-use, flexible solutions are backed by superior customer service, making it a top choice for organizations looking to streamline and automate recruiting and human resource processes. Clients leverage iCIMS web-based software to manage a multitude of human resources and recruiting initiatives, including applicant tracking, onboarding, workforce management, performance management, and more.
Beyond his commitment to product and service excellence, Day is dedicated to creating a better environment to live and work. A "green" organization, iCIMS' commitment to the environment and the community is demonstrated through various programs at both local and national levels. iCIMS' iCARE program provides employees with opportunities to participate in environmental clean-up campaigns throughout the state, and at a corporate level, iCIMS has made a multi-year commitment to purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from National Wind Farms that produce “clean” energy. iCIMS also encourages its customers to remain environmentally friendly by offering iCARE discounts to firms clearly committed to reducing reliance on non-renewable energy.
"I am extremely proud to be named a winner of the Forty Under 40 award," said Colin Day. "I want to share this award with the employees at iCIMS. Their dedication, hard work, and commitment enabled a vision to become a true reality and has helped iCIMS become an international leader within the HR technology space."
