CDW's UK arm continues to close in on £1bn revenues, with market share gains and a focus on client device refresh helping to propel revenues 22 per cent to £881.1m in its year to 31 December 2018.
With global revenues of over $16bn and nearly 10,000 staff, Illinois-based CDW's market value recently topped $19bn, putting it on a par with that of key vendor partner HPE.
