ScanSource Named one of “World’s Most Admired Companies”

ScanSource, Inc., the parent company of ScanSource Europe, has been named one of Fortune Magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies. According to Fortune Magazine, the Most Admired list is “the definitive report card on corporate reputations.”

Executives, directors and analysts were asked to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. This year only the best are listed: a company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be included.

“To be considered one of the World’s Most Admired Companies demonstrates the commitment and high quality of service and support that our employees provide to our reseller and vendor partners every day,” said Mike Baur, CEO of ScanSource, Inc. “What’s more, our strong relationship with our manufacturers and the continued support from our customers and investors allows us to remain successful in today’s competitive landscape.”

ScanSource has also climbed to number 854 on the prestigious Fortune 1000, Fortune Magazine’s annual list of America’s largest corporations, for 2009. ScanSource jumped 47 spots from its ranking of 901 last year.

“It is always an honour to be included in the Fortune 1000, let alone to continue to have a positive move up the list,” said Baur. “This is further proof that, even in a tough economy, our reseller and vendor partners continue to focus on growing their businesses, while our employees remain committed to cultivating these relationships.”
