Boston - August 19, 2002

Miller Systems, one of Boston’s premier technology consulting firms specializing in web engineering and IT consulting, today announced that it has been named to Deloitte & Touche's "Technology Fast 50" program for New England.

Rankings are based on revenue growth over a five-year period. Winners are selected as a result of public and private company research and nominations. Miller Systems was selected from among hundreds of public and private companies.

"In an era where technology companies come and go, making the Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company's vision and strength,” said Stephen J.

"We are honored to be recognized by Deloitte & Touche and Hale and Dorr for our strong performance over the years," said Miller Systems’ President and CEO Seth Miller. "It’s a real milestone for the company, and I’m proud that we’ve been able to achieve this kind of success and stability in just seven years.”
