OTTAWA, ON – August 8, 2016 – Northern Micro outpaces the competition among Canada’s largest IT Solution Providers
Northern Micro, one of Canada’s leading IT solution providers, announced today that it has been recognised as the fastest growing Canadian firm listed on CRN’s 2016 Solution Provider 500.

The Channel Company released its annual CRN Fast Growth 150 list today, an annual ranking of North America-based IT firms with gross sales of at least $1 million who have experienced significant economic growth over the past two years. The 2016 Fast Growth list is based on gains in gross revenue between 2013 and 2015. Only four Canadian firms were listed with 2016 Fast Growth 150, and only 22 Canadian firms were listed on the 2016 Solution Provider 500 with Northern Micro ranking 2nd and 244th, respectively.

“To be Canada’s fastest growing IT Solution Provider among a peer group of the largest firms in the country is a tremendous achievement for our team,” said Herman Yeh, President of Northern Micro. “I am grateful for the incredible effort, passion and value our team delivers to our clients every day – none of this would be possible without their skill, talent and unrelenting dedication.”

“The companies on our 2016 Fast Growth 150 list are growing at an incredible rate, establishing themselves as clear leaders in today’s IT channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Their rapid expansion in a climate of economic uncertainty and unprecedented technological advancement is especially impressive. We congratulate each of the Fast Growth 150 honorees and look forward to their continued success.”
