As ChannelE2E has previously reported, Presidio’s IPO could be a key inflection point for VARs and MSPs that are pursuing hybrid cloud services. Presidio itself has rapidly evolved from traditional IT product sales and consulting towards managed and cloud services — both on- and off-premises.

The company, led by CEO Bob Cagnazzi, has also successfully targeted midmarket customers — largely avoiding commodity SMB sales and direct vendor competition in global 2000 accounts. Presidio’s revenues grew from $1.76 billion in fiscal 2012 to $2.71 billion in fiscal 2016, an 11 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), according to a prospectus viewed by ChannelE2E.

Key Presidio partners include Cisco Systems, Dell EMC and VMware, among others.
