-- iCST, LLC, a leading Information Technology staffing company, today announced that it has been named one of the Top 500 Asian-American Owned Businesses in the United States, as well as one of the Top 50 Diversity-Owned Businesses in Maine, and one of the Top 100 Privately-Held Businesses in Maine.
This is the 9th annual listing of the Nation’s top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com. Companies listed in the Top Business Lists represent the Nation’s top multi-cultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a privately-held business is small and insignificant.
“We are tremendously honored to appear on these lists,” said iCST President and Founder Ashok Nalamalapu. “We believe that our continued growth, even in these difficult times, is due to the quality of our consultants and our on-going relationships with our clients.”
“Entrepreneurs are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business.”
This DiversityBusiness.com List is a classification that represents the top small businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com’
s “9th Annual Multicultural Business Conference”, taking place April 29 – May 1, 2009 at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida. For the complete list of winning companies, please visit: www.diversitybusiness.com
