Founder and CEO says his original goal was corporate obscurity.
Tampa, FL, August 21, 2011—Cybrix Group, a cyber-security and technology services firm, announced that it’s been recognized for the first time on the Inc. 500 list as the 55th fastest growing entrepreneurial businesses in America, with 3,758% growth over a three year period.
While many companies have corporate aspirations for hitting the prestigious Inc. 500, Cybrix Group’s President and CEO Tim Jones had a different goal. Mr. Jones says, “Being in the top 500 was never on my list. The idea at the beginning—eight years ago when we started this company—was to be totally unknown to the world outside of Special Ops.” Cybrix Group’s founders and key personnel are mostly former military, so their unique insights and technical expertise enabled them to meet that initial goal year after year. Yet, when market forces changed, Cybrix Group was compelled to adapt.
Tim Jones reports, “The swing in the economy drove us to diversify our business which then required us to become known outside of the government intelligence community. That was new and challenging and forced us to step out of our comfort zone—we couldn’t just work in the background anymore!”
In order to make that transition, Cybrix Group started focusing on applications and services that could serve commercial markets but that still leveraged Cybrix Group’s special expertise—military-level network and data encryption and security. That move spurred growth over the last three years, so much so that Cybrix Group, on its inaugural appearance on the Inc. 500 list, earned 55th place out of more than 7.5 million American companies evaluated for the 2011 list.
Tim Jones concludes, “I’m very proud of the Cybrix Team for their hard work and dedication. This achievement really has significant value because it means we’re doing something right. I look forward to many productive years to come.”
