One Colorado Springs company, Intelligent Software Solutions, continues to defy economic gravity, ranking No. 344 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list of the fasting growing companies in North America this year.
It marks the seventh year in a row the company has made the list, said CEO Jay Jesse.
He attributes the company’s 358 percent growth during the period to growth in its core business – providing custom IT services to the federal government and the U.S. Air Force – as well as to smart diversification.
“We also work with NATO and some Canadian customers, ” he said, adding that ISS is likely now one of Colorado Springs’ largest defense contractors.
Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the five year period from 2004-2008.
“We’ve grown by about 30 percent so far this year and have added 110 new employees. 2010 looks pretty good too. We’re in an active recruiting mode most of the time,” he said.
