FAIRPORT, NY — The Caswood Group, a contract sales organization specializing in marketing solutions for pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers, was named to the Rochester Top 100 List on November 5, 2008. The Top 100 is an annual program of the Rochester Business Alliance and accounting firm KPMG that recognizes the Finger Lakes Region’s fastest-growing private companies. They are ranked mainly by revenue growth over the three most recent fiscal years. Caswood placed 34th on the list.

“We’re proud of the service we give to clients, and very pleased that our growth reflects their confidence in us,” said Caswood’s CEO Isabel Casamayor. “We feel truly honored to have been included in this year’s Top 100 list.”

To be eligible for the list, the company’s revenues must be at least $1 million for each of the past three fiscal years, and the company has to open its books to accounting firm KPMG. Rankings are calculated with a formula looking at dollar growth and percentage growth over the most recent three years, giving more weight to growth in the most recent fiscal year, said Timothy G. White, managing partner for the upstate New York office.

The Top 100 companies vary greatly in size, from massive Wegmans Food Markets Inc., with 37,675, workers, to much smaller companies such as Independent Housing Solutions LLC of Perinton, which has 10.
