Consultedge Earns Top Honors

Catalyst Telecom Taps Consultedge for Leadership Award

WHIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Consultedge, Inc., a leading provider of unified voice and data communications systems, has been awarded the Catalyst Leadership Award by Catalyst Telecom. The award was presented to Consultedge at Catalyst's Convergence Connection, an annual partner conference held in Hilton Head, SC that unites resellers with leading converged communications vendors.

The prestigious annual award is given to a company that has demonstrated exceptional leadership in the industry through practices that serve all segments of the channel. The award recognizes a firm's success in moving the industry forward through an innovative business model and an uncompromising commitment to excellence.

In 2006 Jack Black, President of Catalyst Telecom, presented the award to Neal Stanton, President and CEO of Consultedge, saying, "This company and the individual who runs it were a Leadership Wild Card pick because of Neal's undying tenacity in driving change that would benefit everyone in the channel. He just wasn't willing to take no for an answer. Neal is on the Avaya Business Partner Council and his company is on our Top 10 list, so it's clear that their results-oriented leadership have been very successful."

This is the third straight year that Consultedge has been recognized by Catalyst. In 2006 and 2007, Catalyst awarded Consultedge the Avaya ECG Growth Award in recognition of its strong growth during those years, both in dollar bar growth and growth percentage.

"Leading by example is a belief shared by all levels of our management team," said Stanton. "Our company's success is directly related to our willingness to put our necks on the line for our clients, employees and partners. We must always do the right thing and accept nothing less. This award is validation of the efforts of all our employees and we are extremely grateful."

Consultedge has been recognized by CRN in its annual ranking of the nation's fastest growing technology solution providers (2005, 2006 and 2007) and by NJBiz in its "Fast 50" list of New Jersey's fastest growing companies in all industries (2006 and 2007).
