Nine Lives Media Inc. Identifies the World's Top Managed Services Executives, Entrepreneurs and Experts

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Evolve Technologies CEO, Dave Sobel, has been named to Nine Lives Media Inc.'s fourth annual MSPmentor 250, a global report that identifies the world's leading managed service executives, entrepreneurs, experts, coaches and community leaders. This year marks Sobel's fourth consecutive appearance on the MSPmentor 250.

"To be recognized by MSPmentor readers and editors as one of the top 250 managed service providers across the globe is a great honor," said Dave Sobel, CEO of Evolve Technologies. "Being included in the MSPmentor 250 for the past four years showcases my dedication, expertise and passion for providing SMBs with innovative IT solutions and service. I hope to continue my winning streak in the year to come through continued company and community leadership and involvement."

"We promised to raise the bar with our fourth-annual MSPmentor 250 report," said Amy Katz, CEO of Nine Lives Media Inc. "We've delivered on that goal, paving the way for MSP experts across North America, EMEA, Asia and Australia to network."

The fourth annual MSPmentor 250 report is based on a global survey of MSPmentor site readers conducted from April through July 24, 2011. The MSPmentor editorial staff also weighed in with nominations based on the team's daily coverage of the managed services market. The resulting MSPmentor 250 report represents managed services experts across business, technology, sales, marketing, community development, coaching and more.

Sobel's involvement with global organizations such as CompTIA and the Heartland Technology Group (HTG), as well as his thought leadership within the IT industry, played key roles in his selection to the list. He is known internationally as one of today's leading experts in virtualization and cloud technology, which has earned him recognition as a Microsoft MVP for Virtualization for two consecutive years and repeat appearances on the MSPmentor 250 list. In fact, Sobel is one of a number of HTG members to be named an MSPmentor each year the list has been published, including Arlin Sorensen, founder of HTG.
