Hilliard, Ohio, September 15, 2010 – Columbus Business First has named e-Cycle (www.e-cycle.com) to its 15thAnnual Fast 50 list of the fastest-growing companies in central Ohio. The list features the region’s most prosperous privately-held companies who have averaged at least one million dollars in revenue over the last three years. The 2010 winners were selected based on a comprehensive review of financial performance between 2006 and 2009, a three-year period when e-Cycle grew its revenue by more than 400 percent and created more than 60 new green jobs, despite a historically weak economy. e-Cycle is the leading provider of wireless buyback and recycling services for businesses and major organizations that demand total data security.

“Since the founding of the company, e-Cycle has been a proud and active member of the Columbus community, so we are very excited to now be named as one of the region’s fastest growing companies,” said Christopher Irion, founder and CEO of e-Cycle. “Our growth was made possible because we have found a way to help our clients sell and recycle out-of-use business cell phones while ensuring complete data security.”

Columbus Business First will reveal the ranking of each organization from 50 to number one at the 15th Annual Fast 50 Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, October 20 at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus. To view the 2010 Fast 50 list, please visit http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/event/12111?mp=3
