ASX-listed regional IT services provider Anittel has taken top spot in the CRN Fast50, it was revealed last night.
The Peter Kazacos chaired national IT services provider grew 310 percent in FY10 over FY09 making it the fastest growing reseller and winner of the second ever CRN Fast50 list.
CRN awarded Anittel's managing director Ilkka Tales during an exclusive gala dinner in Sydney among his fellow CRN Fast50 winners.
When accepting the award Tales said: "Myself and [Anittel chairman] Peter Kazacos see this industry with opportunity. As an IT reseller community we're used to change, I'd like to thank everyone in the industry."
The national regional services provider, listed as Hostech Limited on the ASX embarked on an acquisition spree in February to form a network of national regional resellers for SMB customers.
Initially it bought Anittel Limited, WA IT solutions provider Accord Technologies, NSW regional IT provider AXXIS, and NSW and Melbourne networking integrator Aspirence.
By September, Anittel had acquired its eighth shop, Albury-based network integrator Netrics. At the time Kazacos said: "Our focus is to build on that strength with carrier-grade technology offerings that will provide a richer set of products to the people of Albury and throughout regional Australia."
Last year's fastest growing reseller NSW-based mBits grew 581.3 percent in FY09 over FY08.
