The company I work for, Fusion-io, was featured last night in a local news story on KSL.com noting that we’ve been recently named the fourth fastest-growing company in the USA, even though we’re headquartered in tech-savvy, albeit less-recognized, Utah, the self-proclaimed “silicon slopes” (see npr story on the silicon slopes from 2012).
In November, Deloitte included the Cottonwood Heights company in its 2013 Technology Fast 500™, an annual ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America…
…Fusion-io creates solutions that enable us to access pictures, music, and email faster [said David Windley, chief human resources officer for Fusion-io]. Fusion-io sold its first flash memory drives five years ago, and the company already has annual revenues of nearly $360 million, more than 330 employees in Utah, and more than 900 worldwide.#
This comes a day after I noted on LinkedIN that Provo, Utah AND Salt Lake City have both ranked in the top five for the Milken Institute’s Best Performing Cities (actually sandwiching San Francisco and San Jose, the latter being the location of Fusion-io’s second-largest office–where we are also hiring aggressively). Our third largest tech hub, just outside Boulder, Colorado, is also growing rapidly, hiring several engineers to the ioControl engineering team and more.
