KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Market Science (HMS) has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Technology 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 & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002-2006. The Greater Philadelphia Technology Fast 50 program is presented by Deloitte and sponsored by The Judge Group and Geller & Company.
HMS's CEO Mark Brosso credits a culture of innovation and a cutting edge team with the company's 851% revenue growth from 2002-2006. Brosso said, "This award is a credit to the dedicated team at HMS and their commitment over the last 5 years."
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, 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.
Matt Reichert, HMS's COO added, "We are very proud of this recognition and the accomplishment it represents. As we look toward the future of HMS, our team is focused on continuing our growth trend."
Winners of the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
