Globix Corporation Named to the Deloitte & Touche’s Technology Fast 50 Program for New York
NEW YORK – September 24, 2003
New York, NY, September 25, 2003 —Globix Corporation has been named to Deloitte & Touche’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for New York, a list of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services firms.
Globix is a leading provider of managed Internet applications and infrastructure services to enterprises. Globix has combined a unique suite of managed applications, end-to-end streaming media, hosting and co-location services with its state-of-the-art data centers and global Tier one Internet backbone to become a one-stop-shop for enterprises wishing to optimize their IT infrastructure and operations.
“To succeed during prosperous times is one thing; to succeed in adversity is much more challenging, and that’s exactly what the Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 50 winners have done,” said Larry Wizel, Partner in the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications practice of Deloitte & Touche and Chair of the New York Technology Fast 50. “We applaud Globix for its tremendous accomplishments during economically challenging times and for being one of the elite Fast 50 companies in New York.”
“We are honored to be recognized by Deloitte & Touche for our strong performance,” said Peter Stevenson, Globix’s CEO. “Since 1996, Globix has been playing a critical role in managing the Internet applications and infrastructure that New York businesses depend on. It’s why we’ve become a trusted partner of companies like The New York Post and The FeedRoom.com. And our ability to deliver was never more evident than in last month’s power outage where we maintained power connectivity for customers in our New York data center.”
Deloitte & Touche will announce the rankings at an awards dinner for the winners on Thursday, September 25, 2003, at the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Rankings are based on the percentage of growth in fiscal year revenues over five years, from 1998–2002.
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 1998 and $1,000,000 in 2002, must be public or private companies headquartered in North America, and be a “technology company” defined as owning proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues (using other companies’ technology in a unique way does not qualify); and/or devoting a significant proportion of revenues to research and development of technology.
Winners of the 20 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in the Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America’s top 500 fastest growing technology companies.
