Indianapolis, IN, June 13, 2016 – Cloud Solutions Integrator, Kinney Group, announced today that CRN® has for the first time named Kinney Group to its 2016 Solution Provider 500 (SP500) list. The SP500 list is CRN’s annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.
The SP500 is CRN’s predominant channel partner award list, serving as the industry standard for recognition of the most successful solution provider companies in the channel since 1995. CRN has also released its 2016 SP500 Newcomers list, recognizing 47 companies making their debut in the SP500 ranking this year.
“We are humbled to have earned placement amongst great peers on the SP500 list.

We look forward to further helping organizations rethink their IT in the cloud to transform business and mission potential.” Kinney Group was one of two Indianapolis-based companies to make the list.
Founded in 2006 and celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Kinney Group observed a handful of exciting highlights in 2016. For example, the company named Sarah Nelms the Chief Financial Officer. Regarding its analytics capabilities, the company earned the distinction of Splunk Public Sector Services Partner of the Year.
