Boston Business Journal (04/22/13) Matthew Brown
Nearly 100 employees work at staffing firm Aquent’s Back Bay office on Boylston St. in Boston, and with its clear view of the Boston Marathon finish line, most who were there on April 15 witnessed the explosions resulting from two bombs and their immediate aftermath. “We were trying to figure it out, trying to make sure everyone was okay and wondering what we should do,” says Ann Webster, Aquent’s president.
Webster is hoping staff, which has been working from home, will be allowed back in the building sometime in the next couple of days. She considers Aquent very lucky, because there was only a minor impact on operations, with a couple meetings with clients having to be canceled.
