“It’s an honor to be included on the MSPmentor 100 list again this year,” said Jim Griffith, CEO, Corporate Technologies LLC. “Our managed service, Technology Advantage, provides help desk, remote monitoring and on-site technical resources for our customers and continues to be our fastest growing business segment. Being ranked number 21 on the MSPmentor 100 Global Edition, and number 17 in North America is an outstanding achievement that can be attributed to the commitment of our employees and loyalty of our valued clients.”

The MSPmentor 100 report is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 100 report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

“Nine Lives Media and MSPmentor congratulate Corporate Technologies LLC for earning this distinguished honor,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “As our expanded survey results reveal, the annual MSPmentor 100 survey attracts MSPs from across the globe. Qualifying for our MSPmentor 100 Global Edition list is a great accomplishment.”

“MSPs on this year’s global 100 list lifted their annual recurring revenues 28 percent to $1.04 billion, an incredible showing considering the economic uncertainty all IT services providers faced,” said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. “Those MSPs are now managing 2.7 million desktop and mobile devices for customers, an incredible jump of 50 percent from 2010.”
