Revenue: £650m (+20%)             

Staff: 500

Having first crossed the Atlantic in 2012, this US-based powerhouse now turns over around £650m in the UK and over £1bn in the wider EMEA region, according to numbers it shared with us.

Global revenues of $15bn make WWT one of a trio of three-lettered global IT solution provider giants featuring in the upper echelons of this report alongside 4th-ranked CDW and 18th-ranked SHI. WWT CEO Jim Kavanaugh is expecting further growth in 2023, telling our sister title CRN US in December that he plans to bolster its 8,000 global headcount by a further 500-700 staff this year. 

"We're still reeling from supply chain issues, but that's starting to free up. You can see a lot of the products starting to ship. Our backlog is up going into next year across every sector that we have—so that's very positive," he said.
