Attributes proprietary database and technology for its 296 Percent Revenue Growth
RADNOR, Pa., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- HTH Worldwide, a global health and safety services company, has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Fast 50 Program for Greater Philadelphia, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2003-2007.
HTH Worldwide President and Chief Executive Officer Angelo Masciantonio credits the company's proprietary global database of physicians and new technologies such as mPassport for the company's 296 percent revenue growth from 2003-2007. "We've worked extremely hard on two distinct fronts - developing easy-to-use, intuitive technologies and building what has become an incredibly robust global database of doctors," said Masciantonio. "But I believe our true value to our customers is that we understand that we must surround this offering with a great client experience - we strive to provide great service every day."
HTH Worldwide's increase in revenues of 296 percent from 2003 to 2007 resulted in a 21st ranking in the Fast 50 for Greater Philadelphia.
"Making Deloitte's Fast 50 Rising Star program is a testament to a company's vision that has resulted in exceptional growth over three years," said Michael J. Purcell, Greater Philadelphia Marketplace Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. HTH Worldwide's leadership team has the right stuff for growth, and Deloitte salutes their accomplishments."
The Greater Philadelphia Fast 50 program is presented by Deloitte and sponsored by Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, LLP, The Judge Group, and UK Trade & Investment.
To qualify for the Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2003 and $5,000,000 in 2007, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.
Winners of the regional Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies.
