EVOTEK, Inc., North America’s premier enabler of digital business, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Com- pany, has named EVOTEK #1 on its 2017 Fast Growth 150 list. The list is CRN’s annual ranking of North America-based solution providers that have experienced significant economic growth over the past two years.
“I am grateful for the tremendous support we have received from our customers, employees and partners,” said Jeffrey Klenner, President of EVOTEK. “Growth like we have experienced can only be attributed to teamwork. I am proud of what we have built and excited for where we are headed.”
EVOTEK was founded in San Diego, CA and was purpose-built to address a changing technology landscape. With technology offerings in both data center and cloud, EVOTEK is uniquely equipped to assist customers with the industry shift from traditional IT computing to multi-cloud. This is paramount, to connect the business side of digital transformation with the underlying technologies.
“Customers are looking to spend their time and money on innovation, instead of managing IT,” said Amir Fouladgar, Regional Vice President with EVOTEK. “We are truly able to deliver on the vision of bridging the gap between traditional IT and next generation multi-cloud. This is the exact reason I joined EVOTEK.”
A key component of EVOTEK’s ability to attract top talent is the core philosophy of giving back to its employees. “We allocate 35% of annual net profits to customer-facing employees that have earned partnership status. This aligns the success of the company with the success of our people,” said Jeremy Atwater, EVOTEK Chief Financial Officer.
EVOTEK currently has offices in San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Orange County and Portland. The company’s focus is primarily on under-served markets, which is a value add to both customers and vendors. “Customers in Las Vegas need local attention. Having a local office, with local engineers, has generated quite a bit of interest in EVOTEK. We are on our way to being the largest group in town by the end of the year,” said Jonathan Seigle, Area Director for Nevada.
“The companies on CRN’s 2017 Fast Growth 150 list are thriving in what is now a very tumultuous, demanding IT channel climate,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “This remarkable group of solution providers has successfully adapted to a landmark industry shift away from the traditional VAR business model to a more services-driven approach, outpacing competitors and emerging as true channel leaders. We congratulate each of the Fast Growth 150 honorees and look forward to their continued success.” The Fast Growth 150 list is highlighted in the August issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/fastgrowth150.
