Ingram Micro’s annual SMB 500 list is developed in collaboration with channel research services firm the 2112 Group, Ingram Micro’s Business Intelligence team and U.S. SMB Business Unit. Criteria for selection to the list includes size, overall technology category revenue growth and innovation across SMB engagements.

“We’re excited to be recognized as one of Ingram Micro’s top performing SMB partners in the United States,” says Chris Claudio, CEO of Winxnet. “Our business continues to grow rapidly throughout the eastern US, and our relationship with Ingram Micro allows us to quickly and cost-effectively meet our clients’ needs.”  

“The Ingram Micro SMB 500 is representative of solution providers who are focused on business excellence and recognize the value in teaming with Ingram Micro to deliver a superior customer experience and grow their business faster,” says Jamie Ferullo, director of SMB sales, Ingram Micro U.S.  “We congratulate this year’s SMB 500 and applaud their success.”

Performance metrics, trends, best practices and other key findings from the Ingram Micro 2014 SMB 500 list will be produced by the 2112 Group and noted on the Ingram Micro SMB 500 site: www.im-smb.com/smb500.

Walsh, CEO and chief analyst of The 2112 Group. “The SMB 500 shows how consistent execution and collaboration with a technology distributor with broad resources and support mechanisms, such as Ingram Micro, results in accelerated growth performance and business strength.”
