NameMedia has been named to Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for New England, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002-2006.
NameMedia’s CEO Kelly P. Conlin credits an innovative business model and a highly talented team for the rapid growth required to be selected as a Fast 50 company.
“Deloitte’s New England Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision and tenacity to succeed in today’s very competitive technology environment,” said Steve DiPietro, Partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and chair of the New England Technology Fast 50 Program. “NameMedia, with their phenomenal revenue growth, has proven to be one of the fast-growth success stories in New England and we applaud their dedication to making their vision a reality.”
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies’ technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.
Companies from the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America’s top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
