Clinton Township, MI, November 7, 2019 — Salute Mission Critical today announced it ranked 183rd on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America now in its 25th year. Salute Mission Critical grew 600% during this period.
Salute’s Chairman, Lee Kirby, credits the value of veterans in the data center industry and the need for services with military precision with the company’s 600% revenue growth. He said, “This is a significant milestone for our company as our record growth means we have provided a better quality product to the industry, by tapping into a previously ignored, highly valuable resource pool, and at the same time given thousands of military veterans a chance to start a new career. The positive impact this will have on the industry long term will be enormous as the industry continues to suffer from a critical lack of talent and Salute has a proven sustainable model.”
Salute Mission Critical transforms military veterans into world class data center technicians and as a result is now a premier IT Data Center Lifecycle services company. While Salute ranked 183rd overall, it is significant to note that in the Communications/Networking category, they were the 6th fastest growing company.
“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Once again, we saw innovation across the board, with software companies continuing their dominance of the top ten. It’s always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in.”
“As technology innovation trends towards ‘everything as a service, it’s no surprise that software companies dominate the winners list yet again this year,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “What’s exciting about celebrating 25 years of the Tech Fast 500 is we now have a quarter century of innovation stories to draw and reflect upon. These are the companies that push boundaries, help organizations become more efficient and productive, and ultimately enable businesses to drive growth and revenue. We congratulate all the well-deserving winners.”
