Inc. Magazine Unveils 33rd Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

SyCom Technologies Ranks No. 3945 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 77%

Richmond, VA – September 5, 2014 – On August 20, 2014 Inc. magazine ranked SyCom Technologies NO. 3945 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

All of us here at SyCom Technologies are excited to be named to the Inc. 5000 in 2014. This is the third consecutive year that our company has been recognized in the private company growth rankings from Inc. and we would like to thank our Mid-Atlantic customers for supporting SyCom with their efforts. The revenue growth we have recognized during this time has been a direct result of partnering with our customer base, IT manufacturers and hard work from the SyCom team. Data Center, Collaboration, Security, Managed Services and Cloud were key technology market drivers over the past year and we look forward to continuing our growth into 2015.

The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’ s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.

SyCom Technologies and SBCS have similar cultures of creating long-lasting customer relationships thorough building trust and providing excellent customer service year after year.

SyCom currently has 150 employees throughout Virginia and West Virginia and adding an office in Huntington allows them to more effectively serve the IT needs of customers throughout the region.

Mike Owens, Owner and CEO of SBCS, was considering a split of his System Integration and Software Engineering businesses.  "When Tom Cricchi and I began discussions it was immediately obvious that we shared values on how you treat employees and customers. I believe those shared beliefs will serve our customers and our companies very well.   In addition, SBCS’s ability to provide world class software solutions through our award winning Software Engineering group will continue as it has for the last 25 years and will make the SyCom and SBCS teams unbeatable when it comes to complete Systems Integration and Software Engineering services."

SyCom Technologies earns rankings on Inc. magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States.

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA | September 4, 2013 — SyCom Technologies, providing technology services that streamline data center operations, announced that the company has been recognized on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S.

With an overall ranking of 3,585, this marks Sycom’s second consecutive year appearing on the list, rising from its 2012 spot at 3,769. Among a total of 23 Richmond, Virginia-based companies represented on the list, Sycom holds a ranking of 15 in the Richmond market.

Included in the noted distinguishing characteristics this year—all of which are based on a three-year scale—was job creation. Between 2009 and 2012, SyCom added 45 new employees, marking a total of 135. During that time, SyCom also nearly doubled its total revenue and experienced an overall growth rate of 84%.

About SyCom Technologies

Founded in 1996, SyCom has offices in Richmond, Vienna and Roanoke, Virginia. Sycom focuses primarily mid-Atlantic with a national delivery capability. With more than $60 million in revenue, we are one of the largest systems integrators on the East Coast.

23 local companies on Inc. magazine’s 5,000 fastest-growing list

Twenty-three companies from the Richmond region made Inc. magazine’s list of the nation’s 5,000 fastest-growing companies.

Two of those local firms earned a spot on the Inc. 500 rankings, down from the four businesses on the list in 2012.

“This is our first year on the list,” said Jason Fair, CEO of Genesis Consulting Partners, a 5-year-old technology services company in Henrico County.

“We were 272nd, and 29th out of all IT firms, which is pretty amazing.”

Genesis Consulting boasts a 1,601 percent three-year growth rate, revenue of $12.2 million and 50 employees.

Among the company’s clients are the Nike athletic footwear and apparel company, the QVC home shopping network, Virginia’s Fairfax County, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Lumber Liquidators flooring company.

“We focus on quality of work,” Fair said, “and that our customers are all 100 percent satisfied.”

The Cornerstone RPO personnel recruiting company, also in Henrico, ranked 485 on the Inc. list with a three-year growth rate of 939 percent and $6.3 million in revenue. It was No. 1,380 on last year’s list.

With an 887 percent growth rate, the Impact Makers IT and management consulting firm just missed making the top 500 at No. 516. The Richmond-based company, which was founded with the purpose of donating its profits to charity, ranked No. 360 in 2012.

“It’s a good, wide-ranging list,” Greg Wingfield, president and CEO of the Greater Richmond Partnership, the regional economic development agency, said of the area firms among the Inc. 5000.

The local companies on the Inc. 5000 had a combined revenue of $423.2 million, combined employment of 2,103, and median three-year revenue growth of 135 percent per company, Wingfield said.

“It says we continue to be a good place to start and grow a business,” said Kim Scheeler, president and CEO of the Greater Richmond Chamber, noting that the firms’ business areas run “from logistics to IT to retail.”

Inc. magazine published the list Tuesday on its website and in its latest print edition.

Last year, 29 companies in the Richmond region made Inc.’s 2012 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing privately owned U.S. companies.

Four local companies were on the list last year, up from the previous two years, when the Richmond area had only one company ranked among the nation’s 500 fastest-growing firms.

“It is down a little bit from last year,” Wingfield said, “but you’ve got to remember this is a self-nominating survey.”

Fast-growing companies, he said, “may not have the time and resources to commit to filling out the survey instrument.”

The Inc. 5000 list includes some repeat companies, including Dominion Payroll Services, Mosquito Squad, Barber Martin Agency, TDBBS (which operates BestBully-Sticks.com), and James River Transportation.

A newcomer to the list is Ball Office Products, which ranked 4,621 on the list. It generated $7 million in revenue and had a three-year growth rate of 47 percent.


Effective Qualification Date: 05 August 2013
