Philadelphia, PA (October 16, 2015) - GLOBO, a leading language technology and services provider specializing in interpretation, translation and transcreation services, announced that the company is ranked #8 on the 2015 Philadelphia 100® list of the fastest growing privately-held companies in the Philadelphia region. This marks the second time GLOBO was named to the Philadelphia 100®, having come in at #34 in 2014.
“We are thrilled to be named to the Philadelphia 100® for a second year in a row, but breaking the top ten exceeded our expectations,” said Gene Schriver, CEO of GLOBO.
The Philadelphia 100®, run by the Wharton Small Business Development Center, The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Business Journal, is an entrepreneurial achievement ranking the region's fastest growing companies based on their 3-year growth percentage. GLOBO’s 3-year growth of 413.35% is what landed them a spot in the top-ten.
“The language services industry has experienced sustained high growth for some time now, but has produced relatively few technological innovations,” said Schriver. “The founding vision for GLOBO was to build a technology platform to simplify the management of all translation and interpreting services required by enterprises with culturally and linguistically diverse customer bases. Our recognition on the Philadelphia 100® acknowledges our commitment to this mission and really inspires us to keep driving innovation.”
The final rankings of the 27th annual Philadelphia 100® were announced on October 15, 2015 at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on the University of Pennsylvania's campus.
