“We are excited and honoured to once again be recognized among our peers worldwide,” said Ed VanderLaan, President of PCM. “To be ranked #55 in the small business edition with only 3 companies in Canada making the list is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of our team, and it motivates us to work even harder as we move forward.”

The MSPmentor 501 report is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2013. The MSPmentor 501 report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.


“MSPmentor congratulates PCM on this unique honor,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a Penton business. “Qualifying for our MSPmentor 501 Global Edition puts PCM in rare company.”


MSPs on this year’s global 501 list lifted their combined annual recurring revenues $2.61 billion, continuing seven straight years of strong growth. Together, those MSPs now manage more than 700,000 servers, according to Jessica Davis, managing editor, MSPmentor.
