WOODSTOCK, Illinois, June 19, 2019/www.goleadingit.com has been named one of the world’s premier managed service providers (MSPs) on the prestigious 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.

Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Channel Futures is pleased to name LeadingIT (ranked #396) to the 2019 MSP 501.

“Each year our team provides the FASTEST friendly Chicagoland IT support and awards like the 501 show it.” said Stephen Taylor, Founder and CEO of LeadingIT. “I’m grateful for our growing team as we continue to drive the growth of our company.  Proud of the honor among other great companies in our industry”.

Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
