The company was founded in 1971 under the name Forsythe McArthur. With $200 in capital and a telephone on a dining room table as an office, founder Rick Forsythe and partner Jim McArthur start the company. In 1980, Jim McArthur sells his half of the company to Rick Forsythe. In 1982, Forsythe opens its first two offices outside of Illinois—in Georgia and Wisconsin. In 1988, the employee stock ownership program is established. In 2006, employees purchased the company from Rick Forsythe. In 2013, Forsythe reported its 43rd consecutive profitable year, with revenues of $1.1 billion.
