Last night we were excited to meet some of Virginia's fastest-growing companies at the Westfields Marriott. Fortunately, they slowed down momentarily to attend the Virginia Chamber of Commerce "Fantastic 50" awards dinner, celebrating firms with revenue under $100 million, and drawing a crowd of 400. Not to be frontrunners about it (check your slang dictionary), but all our pictures below are of honorees.


Cascades Technologies president Alfredo Casta, flanked by colleagues Nick Budhai and Sharon Peterson, tells us his Herndon web development firm provides tech support for the our U.S. government's official site www.us.gov, along with its Spanish translation, www.gobiernousa.gov. That language skill will help next week when the three visit the San Juan office, where they've scheduled mucho mojito breaks.


V2 Systems' KC Fort and Leilani Wardle with Prez Eric Briceno. If these guys look familiar, it's because this is their fourth straight year being honored. The Manassas Park-based IT service consulting company started 13 years ago in a farmhouse, but has doubled its revenues every year since 2002. Clients include Cisco, Apple and the City of Manassas. But the real news is that Eric became a first-time father 10 weeks ago.


PRO-telligent VP John Clark, CEO Judy Sebastian and CFO Tom Dean. Judy tells us the Arlington-based firm provides expert staffing for State, Homeland Security, and DEA, to name a few of their government agency clients. "If they want someone who can do XYZ tomorrow, we find them and deliver," Sabastian said. They're pretty good at finding theater tickets, too, as they go to shows together when they're off the clock.


Fortessa's Jeff Smith, CEO Scott Hamberger and wife Megan and PNC Bank's James Sierakowski and Kenneth Kaestner. Sterling-based Fortessa makes high-end flatware, which has absolutely nothing to do with tech, but we wanted to acknowledge that you don't have to be a tech company to grow fast, and also we thought Megan's jacket looked really cool.
