DALLAS (May 16, 2006) — MASERGY, a Plano-based global service provider specializing in simplifying business networks for enterprises, has been named the fastest- growing private company in Collin County, Texas, according to the Comerica Collin 60, an annual award sponsored by Inside Collin County Business, for businesses based in the North Texas area.
“MASERGY exemplifies the standard of success and growth we seek in a leader,” said Jack Bick, founder of Inside Collin County. “This award grows more prestigious each year given the overall growth and success of businesses in this region. MASERGY’s achievement comes as no surprise given that the company ranked second last year and continued to build on its reputation for delivering quality, industry-leading service to its customers.”

Under the leadership of president and CEO Barry D. Nalls, MASERGY has grown its revenue at an average of 32 percent each quarter for the past 18 quarters. In addition, its customer base has grown to include hundreds of enterprise customers in 40 countries across six continents.
