DULLES, Va., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Centuria Corporation announced today they have been named to the Inc 500 list for the third consecutive year. Ranked at number 79, the company was recognized for its fast growth from 2006 to 2009. Making the list for three consecutive years (191 in 2008, and 15 in 2009) shows extraordinary sustainable growth in the Federal IT contracting market.
“We are incredibly excited to be recognized once again for our success in growing Centuria into a profitable business where people want to work,” said Kevin Burke, Founder and CEO of Centuria Corporation. “For the past three years we have been in the top 2% of the Inc. 5000 list. That level of growth can only be attributed to the hard work and dedication of our teams that work alongside our government customers each day to advance their missions.”
