Industry: IT Managed Services & Outsourcing
Shawn Audino believes that leaders should surround themselves with people who are capable of replacing them. As an influential entrepreneur in the field of information technology, that’s exactly what Audino has done to foster and ensure his success.
Audino is well known within the IT Managed Services landscape within the Rocky Mountain region. The relationships he built within the industry has helped move Symmetrix Solutions to a firm with 55 employees and over $10 million in revenue.
“Together with my partners, Kevin Mungle and Richard Crockett, we founded Symmetrix solutions to bring information technology from the basement to the boardroom,” said Audino. “Together, the three of us have over 20+ years of experience in providing IT Managed Services to the small-to-medium business market.”
Audino knows a thing or two about leading companies to success. He has led multiple companies within the IT industry and with his partners, successfully built and sold an IT managed services company named MicroSource to CH2M HILL.
When the three founded Symmetrix Solutions in 2012, they shared a vision of providing a value-based, business approach to providing effective IT solutions to the small-to-medium business market in the Rocky Mountain region with a stated goal of 100% customer satisfaction.
“Through this approach, Symmetrix has grown to $10 million in revenue in just seven years on the strength of over 97% customer retention,” said Audino. The company is a leading provider of information technology and managed service solutions within the region and was recognized as an Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company in 2018 and 2019. Symmetrix Solutions was also named one of the 50 fastest growing companies in the state of Colorado by the Denver Business Journal.
Audino said he plans to keep moving forward with the same enthusiasm and gusto that has led to the company’s success. “Symmetrix is poised to continue its profitable growth over the next five years, with expected growth of over 20% per year,” he said.
According to Audino’s colleagues, the tremendous growth of Symmetrix is due primarily to relationships that Audino has built over the years and his hard-working ethic.
As far as remaining influential in the industry, Audino said his primary goal is to stay focused on providing the best services for their customers while maintaining a great culture and work environment. For his work in the information technology industry and his keen leadership, Audino has been named a Titan 100.
