11th Annual MSP 501 Identifies World’s Most Forward-Thinking MSPs & Leading Trends in Managed Services

June 7th, 2018: CTG Tech ranks among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures 11th-annual MSP 501 Worldwide Company Rankings.

The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide. This year Channel Futures received a record number of submissions. Applications poured in from Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.

As it has for the last three years, Channel Futures teamed with Clarity Channel Advisors to evaluate these progressive and forward-leaning companies. MSPs were ranked according to our unique methodology, which recognizes that not all revenue streams are created equal. We weighted revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Patrick Welch | CEO”I am extremely proud of my staff for their hard work, dedication and effort they put in each and everyday,” said Patrick Welch, President & CEO, CTG Tech. “I am humbled to be able to attend the award Ceremony in Philadelphia, and would not be in that position to do so with out the team we have today. When I started this company in Amarillo TX back in 1982, I never expected to be this far along with such a great team. I am humbled to be a part of this.”

Channel Futures is pleased to honor CTG Tech, LLC.

For the first time, Channel Futures will also name 10 special award winners, including MSP of the Year, CEO of the Year and one Lifetime Achievement Award for a career of excellence in the channel.

The MSP 501 winners and award recipients will be recognized at a special ceremony at  Channel Partners Evolution held this year October 9-12 in Philadelphia, as well as in the Fall issue of Channel Partners Magazine.

“This year’s applicant pool was the largest and most diverse in the history of the survey, and our winners represent the health and progressivity of the managed services market,” says Kris Blackmon, Channel Futures content director and editor of the MSP 501. “They’re growing their revenue, expanding their customer influence and exploring new technology that will propel them for years to come.”
