Recognition for Excellence in Managed IT Services Drives New Direction for Cumulus Global

Pioneer 250Westborough, MA, November 5, 2019 – When CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, named Cumulus Global to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list back in February 2019 in the Pioneer 250 category, Cumulus Global accepted the recognition as a challenge. While appreciative of the inclusion on the annual list of North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services for the SMB market, the team at Cumulus Global recognizes that this is just the beginning.

“In February, we were recognized for our innovative shift in focus towards business outcomes,” noted Cumulus Global CEO Allen Falcon. “This early recognition validates our view that managed cloud services and emerging cloud-enabled technologies are powerful tools only when they are used to support desired business goals and objectives.”

Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses. As a managed cloud service provider, Cumulus Global helps businesses implement and operate complex technologies while staying within budgets and keeping focus on their core business. 

“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.” 

Embracing the challenge, Cumulus Global has launched a series of new and expanded services that empower individuals and enable organizations to do more. 

“We are excited to help our clients overcome challenges, advance business objectives, and simplify IT,” stated Falcon. “By getting more value from cloud forward solutions and emerging technologies, our clients gain more value from their current systems and new solutions.”

The MSP500 list is published in the February 2019 issue of CRN and is available online at www.CRN.com/msp500

“We are honored by the recognition from CRN as we continue to innovate and grow”, stated Cumulus Global CEO Allen Falcon. “This growth would not be possible without our dedicated team, great vendor partners, and customers that see the value in the services we deliver.”

Cumulus Global Receives Pacesetter Award from the Boston Business Journal as the 5th Fastest Growing Private Company in Massachusetts

Pacesetters2014-304
At the annual BBJ Pacesetter breakfast today, the Boston Business Journal recognized Cumulus Global as the 5th fastest growing private company in Massachusetts.  The Pacesetter Awards recognize businesses with exceptional cumulative revenue growth over a four-year period, highlighting businesses and entrepreneurs that create the dynamic and innovative economy in Massachusetts.

In accepting the award, Allen Falcon, CEO of Cumulus Global, discussed the critical role the company’s network of partners, vendors, and advisors has been to its success and growth.  Falcon thanked the entire Cumulus Global team for their efforts, referring to a team, “whose evangelical zeal for all things cloud computing is always tempered with just enough pragmatism to deliver successful solutions to our customers.”  Falcon also praised Cumulus Global’s customers, stating “We are fortunate to have customers that want to learn, innovate, and grow, and that focus on the business value of our solutions.”

Based in Westborough, Massachusetts, Cumulus Global serves small and mid-size businesses, schools, and local governments in Massachusetts, throughout New England, and across North America. The company has offices in New York and is looking forward to continued growth and expansion.

“While the technologies and solutions we deliver are cutting edge,” noted Falcon, “in many ways we are a traditional value-add partner for our customers.  We access business objectives, needs, and priorities; we select technologies and services to create pragmatic and effective solutions; and we follow through with deployment, education, training, and support.”

Cumulus Global’s recognition as a 2014 Pacesetter follows other recent industry accolades, including being named to CIO Review’s list of the 20 Most Promising Education Tech Providers and to CRN’s Next-Gen 250 list of cutting edge solution providers for the second consecutive year.
