Legacy and emerging partner performance fuel first half revenue jump
SHI President and CEO Thai Lee kicked off SHI’s Global Sales Conference this morning by confirming what most employees had already suspected: SHI’s strong start to 2015 continued into Q2 resulting in a record first half performance in our 26th year in business.
Through June, SHI’s year-to-date revenue was up 15 percent over the same period in 2014 with double-digit growth experienced in all domestic sales verticals. SHI also saw significant increases within international divisions, notably in Canada, the United Kingdom, and France.
“Technology remains the greatest enabler for building sustainable, long-term growth and opportunity,” Thai said. She compared SHI’s projected revenue numbers for 2015 against those from 2009 when SHI began its third decade in business. After noting that SHI nearly tripled both headcount and overall revenue in the last five years, Thai showed that SHI has more than tripled its business in data center software and quadrupled overall hardware revenue.
