Adelaide reseller LeetGeek has launched into the CRN Fast50 for the first time, stealing the crown off two-time winner Anittel.

The reseller is run by director Ben Corbett and founder & CEO Richard Stafford, the latter who was merely 21 years of age when he launched the company.

The services provider tripled its revenue for 2012 to $3.4 million in just 12 months, having only been open for business for five years.

LeetGeek targets the education, retail and construction verticals, and was able to take hold of a gap in the Adelaide market when technology buyers expressed dissatisfaction with Apple reseller Next Byte, transforming itself into an education specialist.

It works with vendors such as Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, VMware and Sophos, but Stafford describes the company as "vendor-agnostic".
