Richmond, Va. (PRWEB) October 23, 2007
Amentra, Inc., an industry leading business and technology consulting firm, today announced that it ranked Number 299 on the 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth over five years, from 2002-2006. Amentra grew 518% percent during this period.
Amentra's CEO Matt Ernst attributes its rapid growth to the core development of a strong foundation and culture that is committed to delivering consistent results for its clients and industry partners and rewarding career growth opportunities for its employees.
He said, "Amentra originally set out to build a company that could sustain and foster fast paced growth over a long period of time, so to be a Fast 500 company heading into our eighth year and to receive this national award in each of our first three years of eligibility is recognition that our plan is working. We are honored to be among the fastest growing technology companies in all of the U.S. and Canada for the third year in a row."
"Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 recognizes technology companies who have achieved extraordinary growth in North America's most innovative and competitive sectors," said Phil Asmundson, vice chairman, U.S. Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Deloitte & Touche USA LLP.
