HillSouth Named to CRN’s 2012 Fast Growth 100 List

Annual list from industry publication CRN recognizes the fastest growing solutions providers over the last two years

Florence, South Carolina, September 25, 2012 – HillSouth iT Solutions, today announced that it has been named by UBM Channel to the 2012 CRN Fast Growth 100 list. The annual list features the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry based on two years' growth of net sales from calendar year 2009 to calendar year 2011. HillSouth grew 332 percent based on its relentless focus and innovation in the healthcare technology space focused specifically on the needs of both not for profit and for-profit health centers and clinics.  Fast Growth 100 companies are considered some of the best and brightest of the channel— companies that have managed to fight strong economic headwinds to achieve impressive revenue growth over the past two years.

“Posting revenue growth of any sort is something to be proud of in the shadows of a recession," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director for UBM Channel.  “But the companies on CRN's Fast Growth 100 list have experienced phenomenal increases in revenue over the past two years. Getting there is a combination of hard work and an ability to truly understand customers' needs.  These companies represent the strength of the channel today and hope for a stronger tomorrow. We congratulate HillSouth for continuing to grow and succeed in spite of recent global economic turmoil.”

“We are excited to be ranked for the first time in this CRN list and look forward to continuing our long standing commitment to industry-leading innovations for the benefit or our expanding customer base” said Robby Hill, Founder and CEO of HillSouth.
