CEO resident of Rehoboth Beach

A tech company with offices in Lewes has been named one of the fastest growing companies in the country by Inc. magazine.

Inc., “the magazine for growing companies,” recognizes the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America annually. This year, SecureNetMD, a division of Troy Ventures, LLC, was ranked at 3,604 according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016.

SecureNetMD is a U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act-compliant information technologies company. The company has four facilities in California, Texas, Pennsylvania and Lewes. The local facility operates as a 24-hour call center, or IT help desk, for SecureNetMD clients.

SecureNetMD’s CEO, Jack Berberian, has been a Rehoboth Beach resident for about 13 years. He grew up in Richmond, Virginia and obtained his law degree in California before helping to establish LegalZoom, an online legal document technology company.

Berberian came to Delaware in 2001 to set up a billing agency and was offered a job by Harvard Business Services in Lewes, where he worked for several years. He then opened a medical and respiratory equipment company, MedTix, which he grew to three locations and sold.

SecureNetMD came to fruition in 2009, providing hardware, software, cabling infrastructure and more to healthcare clients.

“We provide help desk services, desktop support, cyber security, security risk assessments, HIPPA client reviews, voiceover IP services, disaster recovery solutions and cabling infrastructure - everything from going into an office and putting in a new cable to designing, integrating and installing all the cabling for an entire facility,” Berberian said.

Berberian has four daughters that attend school in southern Delaware, aged four to 11.

“They all do some form of code,” he said. “We just start giving them the basics and get them involved in STEM.”

Berberian and several SecureNetMD employees are also heavily involved with the Sussex County STEM alliance, which promotes science, technology, engineering and math education locally.

“We’re trying to extend the STEM agenda because there’s such a shortage,” Berberian said. “We do TechTalk, Jr., go to libraries and schools and talk about 3D printing, coding, design, anything to get them engaged.”
