Annual List Recognizes the Fastest Growing Solution Providers over the Past Two Years.

Black Diamond Technologies, a Chicago-based IT infrastructure consulting firm today announced that it has been named by UBM Channel to the 2012 CRN Fast Growth 100 list. The annual list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2009 to calendar year 2011. Black Diamond Technologies grew over 110% based on its strong focus for success for our clients, partners, and coworkers.

Fast Growth 100 companies are considered some of the best and brightest of the channel— companies that have managed to fight strong economic headwinds to achieve impressive revenue growth over the past two years.

“Posting revenue growth of any sort is something to be proud of in the shadows of a recession," said Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director for UBM Channel. “But the companies on CRN's Fast Growth 100 list have experienced phenomenal increases in revenue over the past two years. Getting there is a combination of hard work and an ability to truly understand customers' needs. These companies represent the strength of the channel today and hope for a stronger tomorrow. We congratulate Black Diamond Technologies for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent global economic turmoil.”

“We took the recent economic slowdown to invest in our people, process and engineering team”, said Michael Kupfer, president of Black Diamond Technologies. “Advanced training and certifications for our staff, as well as having a strong process to make sure that IT solutions get implemented to align with the IT vision of an organization has made Black Diamond a much more valuable resource to our clients. This has been the main catalyst for our strong growth.”
