ARG Accelerates Growth; Appoints Chief Revenue Officer

Sponsored by Businesswire

ARG, Inc. today formally announced its plans to accelerate and scale the
firm’s success from regional to national, focusing in on serving the
advanced IT business needs of small to mid-size enterprises across the

In a sneak peek discussion at last week’s Channel Partners Expo and
Conference, ARG Co-Founder and CEO Greg Praske discussed how the
technology consultant with more than $150M under management will
continue to expand its reach and recurring revenues in the coming years
through organic growth and portfolio enhancements, as well as a steady
acquisition of customer-centric telecom agents and managed services
providers (MSPs).

“Today’s businesses generally face three problems when it comes to how
to use technology to achieve business goals,” reflects Praske. “First,
is the overwhelming amount of choice in the marketplace; the second is
the ongoing struggle to keep up with the pace of change; and the third –
which is a call to action for agents and MSPs – is finding an IT
business partner who you can trust.”

Since day one, ARG has prioritized making IT effortless and
cost-effective for its customers. “At ARG, we take pride in helping our
customers use technology to achieve business outcomes, exceed
expectations and deliver an exceptional experience across the
ecosystem,” says Praske.

Demand for great IT service professionals has never been higher, notes
Praske, and ARG’s business in general and new business pipeline
specifically have never been stronger. “We’re hiring the right people,
making the right investments and have the right processes in place to
scale our services and success. Our goal is to provide our customers
with “IT Clarity” – enabling them to choose the right technology and
establish best practices that will help better build their business.”

As part of ARG’s growth plan, the firm hired sales and business
development leader Mike
, who was recently appointed to serve as ARG’s first Chief
Revenue Officer. Shonholz joined ARG from publicly-held IT solutions and
services heavyweight CDW where he served as Director and was responsible
for executing the growth and management of the company’s Aggregation,
Infrastructure, & Managed Services business. Under Shonholz direction,
CDW’s advanced IT services business expanded and grew profitably over a
six-year period.

In his role at ARG, Shonholz leads the investment strategy and execution
of the IT services firm’s two-pronged growth plan which includes organic
and inorganic growth.

“After taking an in-depth look at our more than 4,000 customers and
growing portfolio of providers, we identified a multibillion-dollar
organic growth opportunity for ARG and created a formula for scaling our
success through the acquisition of other customer-centric agents and
MSPs across the U.S.,” explains Shonholz. “Now we’re executing against
our strategy, identifying acquisition targets and expanding our
relationships with our existing customers, providers and partners, as
well as attracting new ones nationwide.”

Agents and MSPs interested in learning more about ARG’s acquisition
interests should contact
