Rose International Named to the Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 500

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 16, 2000 – Rose International, a leader in technology and e-business consulting, has been recognized as the nation's 90th fastest-growing technology firm by Deloitte & Touche in their annual listing of the country's fastest-growing technology companies, known as the Technology Fast 500. Rankings are based on a five-year percentage revenue growth from 1995 - 1999. Rose recorded an astounding 4,841 percent revenue growth during that time.

Himanshu Bhatia, Rose International's CEO, credits the company's rapid growth to employee commitment and a solution-oriented approach. "We believe that our employees are the most devoted in the industry, and our dedication to providing our customers with complete, end-to-end solutions often sets us apart from competitors," said Bhatia. "Our customers have recognized that we not only provide them with top-quality performance, but that we also provide them with added value."

"We at Deloitte & Touche commend Rose International for making the commitment to technology and delivering on the promise of market longevity," said Mark A. Evans, Managing Director of Deloitte & Touche's Technology and Communications Group. "In today's highly competitive marketplace, it is an exceptional honor to be among the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in the U.S. and Canada."
