Reston, VA (Aug 12, 2020) – OM Group Inc. has earned a spot on Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Companies list for the first time. OM Group’s 730% growth over the past three years earned it the #643 spot on the list of fastest growing small, privately held businesses in the United States.

“Our team has worked so hard over these past few years to make OM Group a success, and I am so proud that these efforts are recognized today by Inc. Magazine,” said Sowmya Hariharan, CEO of OM Group. “We could not have done it without great team members, great partners, and great clients.”

Sangita Subramanian, COO, said, “As a minority and woman-owned small business, we are especially excited to have achieved the Inc. 5000 honor because it is based on cold, hard facts – our success is reflected in the numbers.”

Mahesh Srinivasan, CTO, said, “I always knew our team was up to the task of being a leader in the government IT sector. We built this team from the ground up, hiring not only for technical expertise, but also hiring for creativity and flexibility. Knowing how hard it is to find such talent, OM Group also made a point of creating a working atmosphere that helped our team thrive. We can see this has paid off by earning a spot on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list.”

OM Group opened its doors in 2001 working small jobs in the private sector. In 2015, Hariharan turned the company’s focus to government IT services, starting with only five team members and $300,000 in sales. Today, OM Group employs more than 80 people with revenue topping $18 million.

Grateful for the opportunities that this growth has afforded them, OM Group stepped up its contributions to the community in the aftermath of Covid-19 and the George Floyd protests. For example, team member donations to nonprofits are matched by OM Group, dollar to dollar up to a $1,000 per employee. OM Group donated more than 10,000 meals served to date for frontline healthcare heroes and community members experiencing food insecurity; and donations have been made to various nonprofits on the forefront of the fight for social justice and equality.

OM Group continues to grow significantly in 2020, aiming to be a trusted digital transformation partner; a credible source that prepares its customers for the future; and a company that adapts, transforms and grows its capabilities to help its partners by investing significantly in R&D to grow its technical capabilities.

Inclusion on the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list puts OM Group in an elite group that has, over the years, included well-respected companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and Patagonia. The complete Inc 500 list can be found online at and is available in the September print issue of Inc. Magazine. Due to Covid-19, the annual in-person celebration has morphed into an online gathering in October. We plan to attend and share what we learn.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
