ARLINGTON, VA – OCTOBER 12, 2010 - Ellumen, a provider of expert services and IT solutions to federal and commercial health enterprises, today announced it has been named to Washington Technology’s Fast 50 list of growing government IT companies in 2010. In the company’s first attempt at earning a spot on the esteemed list, Ellumen ranked number 50. The company was honored in the magazine’s annual list for its growth in the federal health IT market with sales of nearly $6 million in 2009 for a compound annual growth rate of 63.7 percent over five years.
William McCollough, Ellumen co-founder and CEO, commented: “Ellumen is honored to be one of Washington Technology’s Fast 50 companies.
