We’re pleased to announce that, for the 2nd year in a row, Datotel has been named
to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America:
ST. LOUIS, AUGUST 23, 2011 – St. Louis-based Datotel, LLC, a state-of-the-art cloud computing and colocation provider, is being named today to the Inc. 5000 exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Datotel was recognized by the magazine, along with other independent companies, for achieving outstanding business growth over the previous three years.
“We are honored to be included on this year’s Inc. 5000 list and are thankful for the dedication and hard work of our employees in growing Datotel as well as the continued commitment and support of our clients,” said David Brown, CEO of Datotel. “In 2004, we started with the dream of being the leading IT services provider for businesses and organizations in St. Louis, and continue to strive for that mission every day.”
Datotel continues its growth plans in 2011 with the recent opening of a second location in Chicago to join its present headquarters in downtown St. Louis. The decision to expand regionally was made to further meet the needs of clients seeking disaster recovery (DR) solutions, including backup services for cloud computing applications.
“We understand that disaster recovery solutions are critically important to many of our clients, from small- and medium-sized businesses to enterprise-level firms,” said Brown. “As cloud environments continue to grow and evolve, we are able to help our clients fully realize the productivity and efficiency of cloud computing while maintaining security and on-demand accessibility.”
Datotel ranked 2,209 on the fifth annual Inc. 5000 for 2011 with a three-year growth trend of 113 percent, closing 2010 with revenue exceeding $6 million. Client acquisitions in health care, financial services and nonprofit organizations have driven the majority of growth over the last year. Read the Inc. 5000 Datotel Profile here.
