Sword & Shield Makes 2011 CRN Fast Growth 100 List
Sword & Shield has again been recognized as one of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the United States by Computer Reseller News (CRN) – climbing from number 72 in 2010 to No. 20 in 2011.
With a two-year growth rate of 206 percent and a net sales revenue of $135 million, Sword & Shield secured a position on the CRN Fast Growth 100 List for the fifth time.
CRN’s measuring stick was a company’s average percent of revenue growth between 2008 and 2010. Companies on the 2011 Fast Growth list grew in percentages that were not measured in double or even triple digits, but by the thousands.
“We are honored to be listed once again on the CRN Fast Growth list,” said Sword & Shield President and CEO John McNeely. “Making the list for the fifth time in a row highlights the hard work and talents of our associates. At Sword & Shield we have been focused on bringing innovative and effective security solutions to our customers for dealing with the increasing pressures of regulatory/compliance issues and the rising threat of targeted attacks to corporate networks. This recognition by CRN helps to underscore our track record of success in helping our customers deal with their IT security challenges.”
The CRN Fast Growth list is based on the financial performance of both private and publicly-held companies, including IT solution providers, system integrators, IT consultants and service providers. The selection process measures revenue generated by the sale of IT hardware and software, software licensing, custom software sales, and professional services and managed services.
