(Gawkwire) – IP Pathways, Leading the Data Center Revolution SM , today announced that it has been recognized by Everything Channel on the CRN Fast Growth 100 list. The list recognizes the fastest growing solution providers in North America. Companies on the Fast Growth 100 list average a two-year revenue growth of 130 percent and average annual sales of products and services of $172 million. The ranking is based on two years’ growth of net sales from calendar year 2008 to calendar year 2010.
“When we founded IP Pathways back in late 2007, we saw a gap in the marketplace. There was a consolidation and virtualization movement that was redefining IT and the data center yet we saw most IT VARs and service providers still focusing on the network with emphasis on the convergence of voice & data. IP Pathways was built to be a data center expert. The inclusion by Everything Channel on the CRN Fast Growth 100 list validates our vision,” said Wade Brower, Co-Founder and Co-Owner of IP Pathways. “We are very passionate about what we do and we really owe thanks to our customers, employees and manufacturing partners.”
“IP Pathways is honored to have received this recognition from CRN. It validates the level of commitment and dedication that the employees and business partners of IP Pathways have demonstrated in designing unique solutions in support of our valued customers. It is clear, that excellence in engineering, design and support for our customers are the keys to our success and it is a path we will continue to follow,” said Joe Shields, Co-Founder and President of IP Pathways.
“This year’s Fast Growth 100 list reflects the high growth potential for solution providers offering innovative products, solutions and services,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director for Everything Channel. “Despite an uncertain market, VARs investing in new technologies and services are still growing at a significant rate – a testament to their hard work and ability to truly understand their customers’ needs. We congratulate IP PATHWAYS on their well-earned success.”
