Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that it has been named by UBM Channel to the CRN Fast Growth list for the sixth consecutive year. 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.
During this period, Carahsoft grew 182 percent, increasing revenue from $589.9 million in 2009 to $1.07 billion 2011. Rapid expansion of its virtualization, cybersecurity, citizen engagement, and intelligence analytics business units contributed to the company’s phenomenal growth, and earned it a ranking of #76 on the 2012 list.
“We celebrate this significant achievement with not only our own Carahsoft family, but also with the far-reaching ecosystem of customers, vendors, and reseller partners who contribute to our success. It is an honor to be included again on this list of industry all-stars,” said Craig P. Abod, president of Carahsoft.
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 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 Carahsoft for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent economic uncertainty.”
Carahsoft was founded in 2004 and serves as the largest government partner for many of the industry’s leading software brands including VMware, Adobe, Symantec, Red Hat, HP, SAP, EMC, and F5 among others. The company is also ranked among the top 100 Government IT contractors in the nation.
