Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of on-demand software for corporate communications and public relations, announced today that it has again been named to Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 program for Maryland. The Technology Fast 50 is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in the state by Deloitte and Touche USA LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations.
“To rank on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 companies must have phenomenal revenue growth over five years,” said Mr. Andrew Harris, Deloitte’s Southeast regional managing partner for the Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Practices. “ Vocus has consistently proven to be one of the fast-growth success stories in Maryland and we applaud their dedication to making their vision a reality."
Inclusion in the Technology Fast 50 is based on revenue growth from 2001 to 2005, a period during which Vocus’ revenues increased 235 percent. Vocus President and CEO Rick Rudman attributes this growth to a focus on bringing innovation to the way companies manage their public relations. "Vocus is proud to be named to Deloitte’s Fast 50 for the tenth consecutive year," said Rudman. “Vocus’ record of technological innovation coupled with the growing importance of public relations has enabled us to continue to be a leader in our market.”
