BlueMetal Lands In The Top Ten On CRN Fast Growth 150 List

Prestigious List Recognizes Elite Group of Fastest Growing Solution Providers in the IT Channel

WATERTOWN, Mass., September 16, 2014 

BlueMetal, the Modern Application Company, announced today that it has been named to the CRN Fast Growth 150 list in eighth place. This is the company’s first appearance on the list.  The Fast Growth 150 list recognizes those solution providers that have been the fastest growing over a two-year period based on gross revenue from calendar year 2011 to calendar year 2013. These solution providers have demonstrated exceptional business finesse in order to thrive despite a turbulent IT economy. 

“The solution providers recognized in CRN’s Fast Growth 150 list have successfully navigated the industry’s economic upheaval and have adapted their businesses and grown despite the significant changes that evolving technologies like cloud computing, collaboration and mobility have created in the IT space,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN.  “These organizations are some of the most successful solution providers in business today, and it is our pleasure to recognize them for their accomplishments and draw attention to them as leaders in today’s IT channel.” 

BlueMetal’s value proposition to its clients and employees has been a major factor in its rapid growth.  The company has created a unique blend of high-end design and technology architecture services that are delivered locally and exactly aligned to clients’ needs.  This model also gives the company’s employees an opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the technology consulting industry without the extensive travel typically required of such consultants. 

“Everyone at BlueMetal is thrilled with CRN’s recognition of our success,” said Craig Dillon, President of BlueMetal.  “We built a company around creating extraordinary user experiences across a wave of innovative devices with the power of cloud-based computing.  Our company was purpose-built to design and deliver modern applications at a velocity and quality that is critical to our clients’ success.  Our traction with many of the Fortune 100, as well as some of the most innovative software companies in the world, provides our teams the opportunity to work with cutting edge technology, extraordinary companies, and transformative solutions. We look forward to continuing the wave of growth while making sure the employee experience at BlueMetal remains foundational to our success as a company and enables the impact we have with our clients.” 

“Our place on this list validates our founding principles of creating a company committed to solving our clients’ most challenging technical and business problems, while fostering a vibrant innovation-focused culture where our people can fully tap their intellectual and creative potential,” said Matt Jackson, General Manager of the Boston office.  “I know this company will continue to grow at a fast pace because our team attracts some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry, as well as some of the most forward-thinking organizations as our clients.”
