Optimal Networks recognized by Inc. Magazine for rapid growth among companies nationwide.
–FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE–
Gaithersburg, MD, September 12, 2007 — Inc. Magazine, a resource for entrepreneurs nationwide — recognized Optimal Networks, Inc., on its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Optimal’s three-year sales growth rate of 61% was the driving force behind inclusion in this prestigious list.
Optimal has grown significantly because of its dedicated service culture and its commitment to innovation in the Information Technology (IT) services industry. Optimal anticipated the recent shift in IT outsourcing by providing a package of managed services known as OptimalGuardiansm. This unique flat-fee, enterprise-level service enables small business clients to scale their operations without needing to hire and manage a larger internal IT staff. As a result, small businesses can focus their financial and business resources on their business’ growth and success.
“Over the last 16 years, Optimal Networks has grown from a business school idea to a nationally recognized, fast-growing service company that supports the strategic goals of small- to mid-sized organizations in the Washington, D.C. region,” said Heinan Landa, president and founder of Optimal Networks. “We now look forward to building on our success so that we can deliver our unique, managed IT support and unparalleled customer service to organizations across the region.”
According to Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan, the Inc. 5,000 was created as an extension of Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list: “The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part,” he said. “The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like manufacturing and construction that are underreported in the business media.”
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
