[SCOTTS VALLEY, CA] – JULY 14, 2023: SPK and Associates have been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
For the past 17 years, managed service providers around the globe have submitted applications for inclusion on this prestigious and definitive listing. The Channel Futures MSP 501 survey examines organizational performance based on annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue mix, growth, innovation and supported technologies.
MSPs that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures. It ranks applicants using a unique methodology that weighs financial performance according to long-term health and viability, commitment to recurring revenue and operational efficiency.
Channel Futures is pleased to name SPK and Associates to the 2023 MSP 501.
“We’re extremely proud and honored to be recognized on this prestigious list again in 2023” said Christine McHale, Co-Founder and CEO, SPK. “To be named as a 501’er for the past four years attests to the innovative practices, hard work and commitment my team at SPK delivers each day to support our clients globally. This recognition is absolutely a reflection on our team ethics and putting our clients at the core of what we do.”
This year’s list is one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Winners will be recognized on the Channel Futures website and honored during a special ceremony at the Channel Futures Leadership Summit, 30th October – 2nd November, in Miami, Florida.
Since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking into a vibrant group of innovators focused on high levels of customer satisfaction at small, medium and large organizations in the public and private sectors. Many of their services and technology offerings focus on customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration and hybrid workforces.

It acknowledges the business acumen, best practices and trusted advice they deliver to customers every day. They deserve the honor.”
“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2023 winners, and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of the managed services sector,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager of Informa Tech Channels. “These providers are most certainly driving a new wave of innovation in the industry and are demonstrating a commitment to moving the MSP and entire channel forward.”
