ITsavvy Ascends 2 Major Business Lists
July 13, 2015
ADDISON, IL—ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing tech solution providers in the U.S., moved up 18 places on Crain’s List of Chicago’s Largest Privately Held Companies—from 216 in 2014 to 198 this year. ITsavvy also advanced five places on CRN’s List of the Top 500 Solution Providers—from 140 last year to 135 this year. The growth is the pay-off for strategically smart moves the company has made, including the successful integration of three 2013 acquisitions.
ITsavvy’s Executive Vice President, Business Development Chris Kurpeikis said, “We are also off to an excellent start this year. I attribute that to the cross-pollination of the products and services from our 2013 acquisitions. While our 2014 growth came primarily from the acquisitions themselves, 2015 growth is a result of the legacy ITsavvy team selling the products and services generated by the acquisitions and our acquisitions selling products and services that they now have available to them.”
The company’s growth is also attributed to an industry high client retention rate; strong relationships with vendor partners, and evolution of its Advanced Solutions Group (services) offerings—such as the launch of savvyTalent; and the expansion of savvyGuard.
ITsavvy President and CEO Mike Theriault said, “We are a relatively young company that had to compete with some big players from the beginning. That gave us the incentive to develop strategy carefully; the discipline to focus on what we do best without getting distracted; and the foresight to recognize genuine trends and respond early.”
The Crain’s list of Largest Privately Held Companies ranks all Greater Chicago area non-public organizations by revenue. The 303 companies that make up this year’s list brought in more than $365.5 billion in revenue last year and currently employ more than 140,000 people in Chicago and the surrounding six-county area.
The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s annual list of the top integrators, service providers and IT consultants in North America, ranked by their solution-provider services revenue. Like ITsavvy, many of these companies, which collectively generated $303.6 billion in revenue in 2014, are thriving in an IT industry that’s undergoing massive changes fueled by Cloud, mobility, and big data technologies.
“We will continue to focus on offering our clients products and services that meet and exceed their business objectives while remaining best-in-class when it comes to servicing them,” Kurpeikis said.
