XipLink has won the prestigious Deloitte “Fast 500” award in 2020 for the fiscal year ending in 2019 — the award is measured in terms of revenue growth over a three-year period and is unique by including both Canadian and US companies in the competition.
Evaluators are sent to each company, either in-person prior to Covid-19 or virtually during the pandemic period. Results are reviewed for consistency and accuracy as one expects from a leading worldwide accounting firm.
Jack Waters, CEO at XipLink noted, “As many readers understand, starting a company and then growing to sustain itself is extremely difficult. Because XipLink has been funded by the original founders and our shareholder employees without institutional investment, the growth curve has been gradual but steady over our fourteen-year lifetime. In the last few years our strategy to focus on vertical markets in Maritime, Cellular Backhaul, Government/Defense and rural ISP trunking markets has paid off with higher growth rates and a very healthy company. We are extremely proud of our employees for achieving a key goal by reaching the Deloitte Fast 500 list with a growth rate of 215% over a three-year window.”
“For more than 25 years, we’ve been honoring companies that define the cutting edge and this year’s Technology Fast 500 list is proof positive that technology — from software and digital media platforms, to biotech — truly does permeate so many facets of our lives,” said Paul Silverglate, Vice Chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “We congratulate this year’s winners, especially during a time when innovation is needed more than ever to address the monumental challenges posed by the pandemic.”
