Channels Futures Ranks RSM Among World’s Most Elite 501 Managed Service Providers

CHICAGO – (July 23, 2019) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th annual Channels Futures MSP (managed service providers) 501 rankings.

The MSP 501 is the first, largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide.  Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs are ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

"RSM is pleased to be recognized again this year as one of the world’s top 15 MSP 501 companies,” said John Harder, national managed services and infrastructure leader with RSM US LLP. “Our middle market clients have embraced the ability to leverage qualified IT resources through our managed services offerings, appreciating the continuity and stability we bring to their operations, along with the strategic insights we bring to their business processes. As we continue to develop innovative offerings in the areas of managed security services, managed cloud services and industry-specific IT advisory and governance assistance, our clients’ growth and success continue to be our end goal.”

“While our high ranking in the MSP 501 community confirms RSM’s leadership role in the managed services industry, our goal moving forward is to make it even easier for clients to do business with RSM and to expand our global managed services capabilities,” said Diego Rosenfeld, national go-to-market managed IT services leader with RSM US LLP. “Our success is centered on truly understanding our clients’ business and deploying the right team of knowledgeable, experienced professionals to ensure their IT environment is secure, flexible and poised to meet their needs well into the future.”

In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.

“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”

In addition to deciding the rankings, the survey drives the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel, released each year at the Channel Partners Evolution conference in September.
