Tolland, CT (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
OpenSky Corporation, an IT consulting firm with industry-leading expertise in Infrastructure; IT Risk Management and Security; Governance, Risk and Compliance; and Technical Business Consulting, today announced that it has been named Connecticut’s fastest-growing technology company.
OpenSky was the top winner among the forty companies, which represented six vertical categories, named to the Tech Top 40 list. In addition, OpenSky won for fastest growing company within the IT Services category. OpenSky was recognized for its outstanding growth at the 2011 Marcum Tech Top 40 event at the Oakdale Theater.
The Connecticut Technology Council, a statewide organization recognizing and promoting technology companies in Connecticut, and international accounting firm Marcum LLP hosted the nomination and award process. Each company was evaluated based on revenues from 2007-1010 and was required to have achieved a minimum of $50,000 in revenues in its first year of business, with at least $3 million generated by its fourth year. OpenSky was a newcomer to the Tech Top 40 Awards, having launched in 2007. OpenSky posted a noteworthy 18,221% growth over the past four years.
“OpenSky’s results in our program were incredibly impressive,” said Matthew Nemerson, President and CEO of the Connecticut Technology Council. “We strive to recognize the achievements of technology companies in the state, and OpenSky’s standout growth demonstrates that they’re contributing significantly to the Connecticut tech landscape by generating revenue, creating jobs and demonstrating that companies can thrive here.”
OpenSky was founded in 2007 by five IT consulting veterans who recognized the need for expert, vendor agnostic IT consulting support. Headquartered in Tolland, Connecticut, making the company eligible for the Tech Top 40 awards, OpenSky has grown from 5 partners to 150 full-time employees with a network of over 750 independent consultants. The company has opened offices in the Mid-Atlantic, Southwest, South Central and Western United States to provide targeted support for clients. OpenSky’s focused service portfolio, belief in “doing the right thing” by its employees and clients, and roster of experienced independent consultants have facilitated the company’s success.
“We could not have achieved such significant growth without our clients: they gave us a chance and stood by us year after year as we started and grew our business,” said Roger Levasseur, President and CEO of OpenSky. “We knew that we had the experience and knowledge to create a successful business model, and we’re fortunate to work with world class companies across the United States. We’re appreciative that our employees and consultants are being recognized for their hard work and dedication.”
This award follows OpenSky’s win for Top Workplace in the Small Business division in Connecticut and recognition for employee appreciation.
