The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP announced ADNET Technologies has made the Marcum Tech Top 40 (TT40) list of fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut for the third consecutive year. ADNET will be honored alongside 39 other TT40 companies at ConnectiTECH on October 3rd at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

The awards recognize technology leaders in six industry sectors, including Advanced Manufacturing; Energy/Environmental; Life Sciences; New Media, Internet and Telecom; IT Services; and Software. Companies are both privately and publicly held and have at least $3 million in annual revenue and a demonstrated record of revenue growth in each of the preceding four years. ADNET has been named a Tech Top 40 in the IT Services category. ADNET is a recipient of this award due to strong growth in each of the preceding four years.

“Being named to the TT40 for the third consecutive year is truly a testament to the passion and dedication of our team. I’m continually impressed by the lengths our people go to in order to live our motto and ‘do whatever it takes’ to make the right choices for clients. That mindset coupled with years of experience and varied high level technical skills is what has allowed us to continue achieving this level of growth.” said Christopher J. Luise, Co-CEO of ADNET.

“Marcum is extremely proud to partner with the Connecticut Technology Council to present the Marcum Tech Top 40 Awards which honor some of Connecticut’s most innovative companies,” said Michael K. Brooder, CPA, Marcum’s office managing partner in Hartford, Connecticut. “This annual program over the past 11 years has allowed us a fascinating glimpse into the forward thinking that keeps Connecticut on the forefront of technology innovation and business leadership.
