Global solution provider superstar World Wide Technology is on a mission to drive services sales through the roof this year by hiring an astonishing 1,500 net new employees in 2020.
“We set a pretty aggressive goal around our services and that is to triple our services sales number and the amount of people that we have in services over the next five years,” said World Wide Technology CEO and co-founder Jim Kavanaugh (pictured) in an interview with CRN. “This month alone it looks like we’ll hire – just in our application development services group – a minimum of 30 net new developers. We feel pretty good about our overall services-led strategy.”
World Wide Technology (WWT) is one of the largest channel partners in the world, generating $11.2 billion in revenue in 2018 along with an estimated profit of $700 million. The St. Louis-based company has budgeted enough funding this year to hire an additional 1,500 employees, topping last year’s 700 new employee headcount.
