SHI’s 25th year was a momentous one, and not just because we celebrated our silver anniversary; in 2014, SHI broke the $6 billion revenue plateau and grew to more than 2,800 employees for the first time.
SHI’s revenue growth was driven significantly by each of SHI’s sales divisions, with the Corporate and Public Sector segments expanding the fastest at 30 percent and 18 percent year over year, respectively. To keep pace with our growth, SHI invested heavily in our workforce, adding 350 employees to the global team, as well as in real estate and infrastructure through space acquisitions in the U.K., Texas, and New Jersey.
CEO Thai Lee acknowledged this success in a press release issued yesterday, saying, “Our consistent, substantial growth is a direct result of our close partnerships and our team’s unmatched ability to help customers select, deploy, and manage their technology. Our success has given us the opportunity to build our team in a way that will drive growth and deliver a superior level of customer service.”
In 2015, we’re better positioned than ever to help our customers satisfy their technology needs. Whether it’s migrating off Windows Server 2003, procuring new hardware and devices, or navigating software licensing changes, our specialists can help organizations large and small make new software and hardware deployment easy. We look forward to serving you in 2015, and as always want to extend our thanks to you, our partners, and our employees for your support.
