FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  

VISIONIT RANKED 14TH LARGEST MINORITY-OWNED BUSINESS IN MICHIGAN BY CRAIN’S DETROIT BUSINESS

Detroit, MI – September 15, 2014 – VisionIT, a global leader in mobility solutions, IT managed services and talent management, today announced its ranking as Michigan’s 14th largest minority-owned business as compiled by Crain’s Detroit Business magazine. The 2014 list was compiled based on 2013 revenues of minority-owned businesses headquartered throughout Michigan.  

VisionIT established its business in Detroit, Michigan in 1997, and since that time has grown to be one of the largest employers and revenue-generating enterprises in the state. The company’s success extends globally, having been included among the country’s largest and fastest-growing minority-owned businesses over the past several years.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Crain’s for our hard-earned revenue and operational growth over the past year, and are honored to be included among many of Michigan’s leading organizations,” said David Segura, CEO and founder of VisionIT. “We had a vision many years ago to make Detroit, Michigan an innovative technology hub and we are now living in a time where the State of Michigan and Detroit is receiving this kind of recognition.”

 Over the past year, VisionIT has focused significant efforts and resources towards global expansion, in response to client needs. Several of the company’s Fortune 500 customers have requested IT staffing and managed services support from VisionIT to support their overseas operations. The company recently expanded into Brazil, U.K. France, Italy and Canada.

“We are finding more customers moving away from engaging a single IT outsourcing partner, instead moving to a more flexible model in which they are leveraging key IT partners who have the size and scale, but also specialization in specific areas of IT,” said Segura. “Our Fortune 500 clients are increasingly turning to us for innovative mobility solutions, as well as to run mission-critical applications and network operations.”
