Empired awarded the prestigious “Leader award” in the 2015 CRN Fast50

27 November 2015

27 November 2015 - Empired has won the 2015 CRN Fast50 Leader award, which recognises it as the largest organisation amongst a field of the fastest growing IT companies within Australia.

The CRN Fast50 program looks at year-on-year growth among local IT companies, with the top 50 high-growth organisations are revealed at a major awards ceremony in Sydney each year. The CRN Fast50 Leader Award is presented to the company exhibiting the largest revenue in the Fast50 program.

Russell Baskerville, Empired’s Managing Director, said, “Empired is proud to be included in this year’s CRN Fast50 and absolutely thrilled to be named the winner of the Leader award. This achievement recognises our commitment to delivering value to local businesses through cutting-edge innovation and solutions. We’ve helped our customers grow, and their growth has helped to drive our own as a major player in the Australian IT landscape. In many ways, this award also belongs to our customers, and we thank them for this recognition.”

Given the size of the organisation, Empired was further recognised with an impressive 13th place in the overall Fast50 ladder.

Steven Kiernan, the editor of CRN, commented on this year's competition:

"It was fantastic to recognise this phenomenal group of high-performing IT companies. Clearly, the Australian IT channel is fighting fit and rapidly evolving for tomorrow. This year's CRN Fast50 was the toughest competition we have seen, with even the lowest-ranked company still growing at an impressive 26.05 percent.

"The 2015 crop of CRN Fast50 companies proves there is no single road to success in the Australian technology industry. They are an agile and diverse mix of trusted advisors. To achieve a position in the CRN Fast50, companies must be service-oriented and customer-focused."

The CRN Fast Leader award comes on the back of Empired also being acknowledged as an industry leader at last week’s Deloitte Technology Fast50 awards.
