Southington, CT – The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP announced COCC has made the Marcum Tech Top 40 (TT40) list of fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut.

This is the second consecutive year that COCC has made the Marcum Tech Top 40 list, which recognizes technology leaders in six industry sectors. There is one winner in each category, including Advanced Manufacturing, Energy/Environmental, Life Sciences, New Media/Internet/Telecom, IT Services, and Software.
“We are extremely proud of our sustained revenue growth over the past several years,” said Richard A. Leone, Chief Executive Officer of COCC. “This comes as we continue to deliver high levels of service and industry leading products to our clients as well as a workplace that fosters growth and development opportunities to more than 550 employees. Our selection to the Marcum Tech Top 40 list again this year shows that we are a leader for innovation and growth as a Connecticut-based company.”

Tech Top 40 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.

Winners will be announced November 20, along with the release of a video featuring senior executives from selected Marcum Tech Top 40 companies. They will speak about the secrets to their success along with thoughts and advice on the role that tech companies should play in Connecticut’s economy.

“It has been a privilege to sponsor the Marcum Tech Top 40 awards for the past dozen years. We have seen some remarkable companies emerge from the Connecticut tech sector, most especially this year, and look forward to celebrating their achievements when the winners are announced next month,” said Michael K. Brooder, CPA, Marcum’s office managing partner in Hartford.

Severine Zygmont, CTC’s Board chair, said, “Connecticut is proud of its unique history of innovation and entrepreneurship.
