VIENNA, Va., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Emergent, award winning IT solutions provider and vendor integrator, 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. Emergent grew 43% based on growth in areas including, Security, Cloud, Open Source, Collaboration and Consulting Services. This is Emergent's second consecutive year listed on the CRN Fast Growth 100.
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 Emergent for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent global economic turmoil."
"Our success can be attributed to the fact that we are not just another Value Added Reseller but we are a Vendor Integrator," says Greg Christensen, President of Emergent.
