Evolve IP Recognized by Inc. and Red Herring
Congratulations to Evolve IP on their two recent designations! The Wayne-based firm was named to the Inc. list of fastest growing companies, and Red Herring’s list of Top 100 Companies in the world.
The company’s success has soared with the ubiquity of the cloud — it has posted growth of 176 percent in the last three years and 80 percent since it started almost eight years ago, according to a Philly.com report.
“It makes it easier for us to succeed,” Chairman and CEO Thomas Gravina said in the article. “We’re no longer telling a story that nobody else is talking about.”
The demand for Evolve IP’s cloud-based servers, data backup and communication services has spurred a recent expansion of its national operations center in Wayne to 27,000 square feet, and its workforce of 185 is expected to jump another 60 to 80 employees over the next two years, the article noted.

Today Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, announced that Red Herring has named it as one of the Top 100 Companies in North America. Red Herring’s Top 100 recognizes the leading and most promising private companies from around the world. Among the over 20 criteria used to analyze companies for the award, Evolve IP was noted for its financial performance, technological innovation, customer footprint, the DNA of its founders and addressable market.
Red Herring selects the award winners for North America from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these organizations and its editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
In addition to its selection, Evolve IP was invited to speak at the Red Herring conference on the topics of managing rapid growth, talent recruitment, and associate development and retention. Guy Fardone, Evolve IP’s Founding Partner & General Manager noted at the event, “Our success is built in large part on the continued growth and development of our associates. Across all levels of the organization we focus on providing our associates with the critical skills and training necessary for well-rounded development, we enable them to advance their ideas and ultimately place them on a career path to grow quickly and productively. We call it Evolutions, and it’s a key tenant for the organization.” Fardone continued, “We are very honored to be included in the Top 100 and placed in the ranks with other Red Herring recognized technology companies such as Google, Salesforce.com and Skype.”
