It’s always nice to be recognized for a job well done, but it is a tremendous honor to receive three prestigious industry awards in two short months. This summer, TBNG, Inc. (TBNG Consulting & Vancord Cybersecurity) has been honored with: The 2021 CRN Fast Growth 150 award, the 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 award, and a ranking on the 2021 Inc. 5000 List.
"These awards are the manifestation of the hard work, consistency, and commitment of all TBNG, Inc. employees over many years to this point. Our growth and success as a company aren’t just the result of one exceptional year or a flash in the pan. Instead, it is the product of the relentless pursuit of quality by our staff and trust from our clients. Every day, we build, support, and secure technology networks, but just as important, we build, support, and secure strong relationships with our clients, which enables them to focus on their business. I’m very proud of our team, my partners, and the unique recognition that each of these awards represents."

The 2021 Fast Growth 150 List
TBNG learned in early August that CRN, a brand affiliate of the Channel Company, had named it to its 2021 Fast Growth 150 List. CRN recognizes the fastest-growing North American technology integrators, solution providers, and IT consultants for their significant growth and performance over the past two years with this annual list. The 150 companies on this year’s Fast Growth 150 list generated $94.78 billion in collective revenue during 2020 & 2021. TBNG's total revenue grew 23% over the past two fiscal years. In a highly competitive, fast-paced environment, solution providers such as TBNG must supply their clients with a complicated and intricate lineup of hardware, software, communications, and services. It takes hard work and effort and some creative thinking to differentiate themselves in a crowded landscape, and achieving sustainable growth year-over-year is a laudable accomplishment.
"The fast growth 150 is particularly special to me. Since 2019, TBNG has been awarded yearly by CRN with the MSP 500, the Pioneer 250, and now, the Fast Growth 150. Being part of Fast Growth 150 signifies the hard work, the adoption of innovative technologies, and our focus on exceptional engineering talent that is the backbone of our company. We will continue to invest in our people, in new technology, and in our service offerings, as well as utilizing industry partners such as CRN and The Channel Company to face the challenges presented to us in 2021 and beyond."
Louis Ardolino, TBNG Vice President, Client Services
The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 List
In July, TBNG also received notice that it had been selected as one of the technology industry’s top-performing managed services providers by the editors of Channel Futures. The award is based on organizational performance and annual sales, and applicants must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures. This year’s list attracted a record number of entries and was one of the most competitive in the award’s history.
The Inc. 5000 Award
On August 17, 2021, Inc. Magazine revealed that TBNG had made its 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies. The honored companies comprise a dynamic roster within the nation’s economy of independent small businesses. This year’s list is particularly impressive as the companies demonstrated flexibility and resiliency in a year filled with unparalleled challenges. Among the 5,000, the average 3-year growth escalated to 543%, and median revenue topped $11 million. Altogether, these companies added more than 600,000 jobs to the economy over the last several years.
"Since I arrived at TBNG in 2019, and of course long before, we have worked tirelessly to drive value for our customers and create a frictionless experience, all while helping our customers adapt to the impacts of COVID, resource shortages, and a tough economy. I see these awards as an excellent gauge of the job we’ve done as a company partnering with our customers to deliver service they can count on."
