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

On February 21, Estes Express Lines will share their thoughts on early stages of IT transformation. Technology is no longer just supporting Estes but driving it (no pun intended). To share their story we’ve invited Bob Fowler, Chief Information Officer, and his team of Directors for an open panel discussion on the process and their successes.

SyCom Technologies Named to UBM Channel’s Solution Provider 500 List
Annual List Ranks North America’s Top 500 Technology Integrators

Richmond, Virginia, June 6, 2012 – SyCom Technologies, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2012 Solution Provider 500 list, which ranks the top technology integrators in North America.

SyCom placed 272 in the annual ranking.


The Solution Provider 500 ranking is based on revenue size, and considers each company’s forward-thinking approach to the channel. In particular, the Solution Provider 500 selection panel sought to recognize companies that are building out practices around the data center and virtualization while offering software integration and application development skills. Revenue size is determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2011. Companies with no public documentation were required to submit a notarized affidavit attesting to their 2010 and 2011 revenues.

“The organizations listed in this year’s Solution Provider 500 list are today’s true integration innovators who generate high revenues by putting their customers’ needs first,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director at UBM Channel. “Their primary role is to engineer ways to leverage technology solutions that help customers exceed their sales goals, drive client satisfaction, expand internationally or accelerate new product development. In essence, they are today’s IT integration leaders for middle market and enterprise customers. We congratulate <company name> for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”


Solution Provider 500 Executive Conference and Awards
