Q&A: Corus360's Steve Johnson On How His Company Has Handled Mammoth Growth

How To Handle Growth

Corus360 has been on a growth tear for several years, ranking 10th on CRN's Fast Growth 150 list in 2016, with a two-year growth rate that topped 213 percent. It also shot up CRN's annual Solution Provider 500 list, climbing from 200th in 2015 to 155th in 2016.

And for the third straight year, Corus360 was a CRN "Triple Crown" winner, one of 48 solution providers that made those two lists, as well as the Tech Elite 250.

The company, based in the Atlanta suburb of Norcross, has expanded throughout the Southeastern U.S. and beyond. Corus360 provides advanced technology services for the data center, cloud, collaboration, security and information architecture. And its "People as a Service" business helps augment IT staffs when they need outside help.

In this interview with ITBestOfBreed, President Steve Johnson (pictured) talks about how Corus360 handles growth, as well as the skills gap tech companies face today. The interview is edited for brevity and clarity.
