It's an honor to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Utah.

Telarus Inc., the premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced that it has been named one of the 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Utah for the second consecutive year. The official list is published annually by MountainWest Capital Network (MWCN), the largest business networking organization in the state of Utah. The 19th annual MWCN Utah 100 Awards were held on October 22, 2013 in the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.

"We are very humbled and excited to be named to this very prestigious group of Utah-based companies for the second year in a row," commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. "We are so grateful to our employees, suppliers, and agent partners who helped us earn this. We have been working hard to make sourcing commercial broadband, voice, and cloud services simple. This award shines a light on our efforts and the results are here for all to see. To be recognized in the same banquet as companies like SkullCandy Inc.,, and Vivint is a real honor."

The MWCN Fastest Growing awards are based on percentage revenue increases over a five-year period (2012 revenue divided by 2008 revenue), with a minimum of $50,000 revenue in 2008. Telarus' revenue growth during that period was over 200%.

"It's an exciting time to announce each year the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah," said Jason Watson, MWCN president. "Utah is a state that fosters business success and the Utah 100 is an opportunity to honor those businesses like Telarus, Inc. that continue to grow at a rapid rate. We extend our congratulations to Telarus, Inc. on a terrific track record of success."

Telarus, Inc. relocated its headquarters from California, where the company was started in 2002, to Utah in 2004. Since the move the company has hired over 40 new employees with most of them based in and around Sandy, Utah, home of the new corporate offices.

"The team we've been able to assemble here in Utah has been phenomenal," added David Bashford, COO of Telarus. "From our Utah headquarters we are able to support the sales activities of hundreds of our sales partners, most of whom reside outside of the state. We're excited to be recognized by the MWCN and to be an active member of the Utah business community."
