TWT Group Inc. Announced As MSP 501 Award Winner For Second Consecutive Year


TWT Group Inc. has again been named one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. The company was also recognized in 2018 for its customer support, knowledge of the managed services market, and business strategy in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

“To be recognized again by the MSP 501, the largest and most comprehensive ranking of managed service providers worldwide, is extremely exciting,” says Shawn Freeman, owner and CEO of TWT. “This is TWT’s second year winning, which shows our continued ability to perform at the highest levels as a managed service provider. It’s beyond inspiring for me and my team, and we know this is just the start of even bigger things to come for our company and our clients.”

“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.”
