Atlanta, GA -- 6/17/2010
FiberLight, LLC, one of the nation’s leading providers of mission-critical, high-performance fiber optic network solutions, announced today it has been named one of Georgia’s fastest growing companies by Georgia Trend magazine. FiberLight, which is headquartered in Atlanta, ranked 5th among small mid-market companies for the 2010 Georgia “Fast 40,” presented June 17 by the Association for Corporate Growth Atlanta and Cherry, Bekaert & Holland, LLP.
Founded in 2005 by a team of 20-year telecom industry veterans, FiberLight and its investor, Thermo Capital Partners, have experienced record growth year after year. In 2009, the private Georgia company reported a 114% profit while simultaneously maintaining a low debt ratio and extending its massive high-bandwidth network to include new construction projects in Georgia, Florida, Texas, Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
FiberLight CEO and Founder Michael P. Miller attributed the company’s growing marketplace presence to its disciplined financial focus and willingness to take calculated risks. “We are honored to be recognized by Georgia Trend for our continued industry success,” Mr. Miller said. “We believe FiberLight has attained sustainable growth by understanding market trends, knowing what drives valuation and creating value for our customers and partners by meeting marketplace demand for solutions to business continuity and data security with ultra-reliable and scalable end-to-end networking solutions which exceed industry standards.”
To qualify for the Georgia Trend award, companies must be headquartered in Georgia and have net sales ranging from $20 million to $50 million. Additional criteria include three years of sustained revenue and employment growth.
