MARLBORO, MA and NEW YORK
Inc. magazine included International Computerware, Inc. (ICI) on its sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. ICI joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, Giftcards.com, KIND and famed hatmaker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“It’s a tribute to all at ICI to have been named to this very prestigious list of entrepreneurial companies,” said ICI EVP and Partner, Jamie Shepard. “I’m proud to have been such a strong part of ICI’s evolution over the past 18 years, leading the transformation of ICI into one of the nation’s strongest and most recognized leaders for technical innovation and excellence. Our business model and history of infrastructure consulting and services, as well as our award winning nCubed methodology, has been at the forefront of our growth and success. Our alignment with our strategic technology partners has provided ICI with a go-to-market strategy that is properly aligned with the objectives and requirements of the global clientele that we service.”
International Computerware, Inc.’s placement on the Inc.500|5000 list is the only latest accolade the Marlborough, MA based infrastructure consulting firm has earned this year, having earlier been named both EMC’s Services Partner of the Year for the Americas and VMware’s Business Continuity Partner of the Year for the Americas. ICI has also earned the EMC’s Quality Services award for the 5th consecutive year.
In a stagnant economic environment, ICI’s year-over-year growth remains an impressive 60% percent. Leveraging their foundation as an infrastructure consulting firm, their robust experience in helping customers adopt new ways of providing compute and data to end users, and their nCubed methodology has enabled ICI to properly address customers’ goals and aspirations. This model positions ICI for insulated growth during all economic times. Coupling this consistent model with innovative leaders such as ICI’s CTO Brad Maltz – who, along with EVP Jamie Shepard, is a well-known pioneer in this industry — provides ICI and its customers with unseen stabilization and growth in infrastructure consumption and cloud computing.
“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
