COSTA MESA, CA, September 14, 2009 — MegaPath, Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, announced today the company was named to the Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine’s annual list recognizing the nation’s fastest-growing companies. With 221 percent revenue growth between 2005 and 2008, MegaPath ranked 1,446 on this year’s list. In addition, MegaPath also ranked 45th on the “Top 100 Telecommunications Companies” list.
“MegaPath strives to provide fully-managed voice and data connectivity and security services that are both innovative and cost-effective,” said Dan Foster, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, MegaPath. “This consistent focus has enabled MegaPath to remain top of mind as businesses search for ways to cut costs without compromising customer service. We are proud to be recognized by Inc. Magazine for a third consecutive year, as it demonstrates our leadership within the telecommunications and managed IP services industries.”
Despite the ongoing recession, the Inc. 5000 companies posted a $214 billion increase in aggregate revenue, up $29 billion from last year’s list. In addition, the companies listed also created more than 1 million jobs since their founding, emphasizing the impact that private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”
To qualify for the Inc. 5000, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies, as of December 31, 2008. Revenue in 2005 must have been at least $200,000 and revenue in 2008 must have been at least $2 million.
