The 25 Top Solution Provider Companies: 2022 Solution Provider 500
CRN’s 2022 Solution Provider 500 list ranks the top VARs, integrators, service providers and IT consultants with operations in North America by revenue. Here are the top 25 companies on this year’s list.
No. 4: CDW
2021 Ranking: 5
Top Executive: Christine Leahy, President and CEO
Location: Vernon Hills, Ill.
On Dec. 1, 2021, CDW closed its $2.5 billion acquisition of Sirius Computer Solutions in one of the biggest acquisition deals in channel history. (The acquisition deal was announced Oct. 18.) Through the acquisition CDW grew to more than 13,000 employees and greatly expanded the breadth and scale of its services and solutions capabilities.
For all of 2021 CDW reported revenue of $20.82 billion, up nearly 13 percent from $18.47 billion in 2020.
CDW’s revenue for 2021 included only $197 million from Sirius’ revenue – essentially the one month following the completion of the acquisition. Given that Sirius generated just over $2 billion in sales in 2020, CDW could move further up the CRN Solution Provider 500 list in 2023 (based on 2022 revenue) when the gain from Sirius is fully realized.
