    September 2015

  • The “Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Orange County” were announced by the Orange County Business Journal.  The rankings require a growth rate of a minimum of 15% based on revenue from June 30, 2013 through June 30, 2015.  Verys recognized 689% growth over that 2 year duration to rank #5 amongst all small businesses in Orange County.  Verys, established in 2012 by CEO Chris Antonius and President Mike Zerkel, had $769,125 in revenue for year end June 30, 2013 and is on track to exceed $7M in 2015.

    Verys, which provides web design, custom software development and technology consulting, has been growing rapidly from inception and counts American Airlines, Hyundai/Kia, Disney, Active Networks, Option Care, Edwards Life Sciences and Stearns Lending as key clients.  Verys has been fortunate to obtain a great mix of clients both with Fortune 500 companies and start-up organizations with a focus on technology.

    Chief Executive Chris Antonius adds, “Our entire team at Verys is very proud of our first three years in business as we have gone from two partners with what we thought was an interesting business model to a core group of over 60 associates.  We have an amazing client roster and we continue to grow our company as our commitment to quality is unparalleled.  If we continue to focus on building extremely reliable software while focusing on getting a little better each day then there is no reason why we can’t continue our growth trajectory”.

  • Orange County Business Journal recognizes Verys as one of Orange County’s top software companies

    June 2015

  • The largest software companies in Orange County added jobs for the 4th consecutive year, albeit at a slower clip. The 32 largest software companies with local operations added 49 jobs in the last year through March, eking out a 0.6% increase according to the Orange County Business Journal. The sector, which includes locally based software makers and subsidiaries and operations of big companies, has posted modest job gains every year since the Business Journal began ranking companies by local employees four years ago.

    One of the newcomers on the list is Verys who has 34 employees in Orange County and 65 company wide. Verys, established in 2012, landed recent deals with mortgage lender Pacific Union Financial and reservation management software maker Active Network to provide web design, custom development and technology consulting.

    Verys has benefited from the economic recovery as IT budgets are increasing, as well as from a shift to bring speedy and quality software design and development back to the US after years of offshoring, according to Chief Executive Chris Antonius. “As a result, we have seen exceptional growth and we anticipate the same through 2015 and beyond.”
