DLT Solutions Exceeds Half-Billion Mark in Sales in 2008
Herndon, VA - (March 24, 2009) - DLT Solutions, a value-added reseller of industry-leading information technology (IT) products and services, reached a new milestone in the company history, nearing $504 Million in Revenue in 2008. This is the second year in a row that the company generated more than 20 percent sales growth year-over-year, after reporting $418.6 Million and $340 Million in revenue in 2007 and 2006 respectively.
"DLT has proven that its sales and marketing leadership is of significant value both to its customers and its partners. Once again, we have exceeded industry growth rates - taking market share from competitors, adding new strategic partners, aggressively driving demand for our partners' products and services and providing deep technical expertise to our government customers," said Rick Marcotte, president and CEO of DLT Solutions.
After becoming president and CEO in 2004, Marcotte set a goal to reach $500 million in revenue in five years. Through its own sales and marketing efforts, the company reached its goal one year early. In 2008 alone, the company completed more than 1,900 separate demand-generation marketing activities which contributed to a record 26,000 sales leads for its vendor partners, which represents the majority of all opportunities that come through DLT. The company's efforts and achievements have brought it many recognitions recently including being named number one in the Term Software License category in the GSA IT Catalog of Top IT Contractors on GSA Schedule 70.
"DLT Solutions has been a strong public sector partner for many years," said Jim Russell, vice president, public sector, Symantec. "DLT has made large investments in their technical expertise, sales training and engineering support for the complete Symantec line of products and solutions. We have a high degree of confidence in their ability to support our government customers with their storage and security IT requirements."
"We were pleased with the bullishness in some of the key market segments such as Facilities, Utilities and Transportation and the use of IT to fast-track some of the "shovel-ready" projects at the state and local level," Marcotte explained. "Other key motivators we see driving DLT's and our partners' success in the government sector include increasing sensitivity to security, driving efficiency through virtualization, intelligently and economically managing data growth and using enterprise open source solutions to drive down costs while delivering better service to the organization."
