Globalpark has been selected for the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 – an annual list of the fastest growing technology companies in Germany, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five years.
Globalpark was ranked number 25, based on its 422% growth from 2004 to 2008. This is Globalpark’s third consecutive year on the list, and current revenues and executive appointments indicate this won’t be the last.
“The growth rates of all technology companies show that product innovation is driving the industry. The potential is far from being fully realized – among the most promising are online software solutions, and mobility-enabled gaming and communications,“ said Dieter Schlereth, Partner and Director of Technology, Media and Telecommunications at Deloitte.
Dr. Lorenz Gräf, CEO at Globalpark, evaluates this year’s position very positively:
“We are particularly happy about this year’s award, as it demonstrates Globalpark’s ability to perform in a down economy by revolutionizing the way organizations engage with their customers, employees and partners. We are proud to help our clients achieve more with less, and stand by our open approach to market to ensure our clients leverage not just existing assets but those still to be developed.“
