Letter from the Publisher

We take this opportunity to present our seventh annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in San Diego County.

We’re proud to note that no other publication offers such valuable data, which also makes for good reading.

It’s part of our mission to provide a sense of community to local businesses and industries.

Compiling the list and staging the awards reception takes many months and requires the combined contributions of several different departments here at the San Diego Business Journal.

We begin our research in the spring, accepting questionnaires from businesses that want to land a spot on this highly coveted ranking.

To be considered, a business must be based locally. Moreover, each candidate must be privately held — and independent — and can’t be a division or subsidiary of another company, public or private.

Each qualifying company must have generated revenues of at least $200,000 in 2007, which is the starting point for our calculations.

We then verify the financial information supplied by each company, reviewing the financial details of each company’s business operations in 2007, 2008 and 2009.  Our research team spends months crunching the returned data in the questionnaires, which is used to rank the businesses that make the list.

The 100 companies spotlighted here reflect the high energy and intense focus of the local business community. It’s an honor to be so recognized.

We congratulate those entrepreneurs that make the list, and thank all businessmen and women who chose to participate this year. If you think your business might qualify for the Fastest-Growing Private Companies list next year, please let us know. We’ll send you a questionnaire that could land your company on the 2011 list.

The San Diego Business Journal would like to thank our presenting sponsor, Accountemps, A Robert Half Company, and co-sponsors Barney & Barney LLC, California Bank & Trust, COX Business, ESET, Kaiser Permanente, McGladrey and The Westgate Hotel for their support of this supplement and our awards reception.

We hope you’ll enjoy learning about San Diego’s 100 fastest-growing private companies.
