Sacramento, CA: August 26, 2010 -- Quest, a technology management firm, announced the organization has been named to the inaugural Diverse 100 list by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine.

Quest is 60% woman-owned and is a diverse company which employs people of all walks of life including students and people of retirement age, veterans, and all ethnicities. According to Tim Burke, Quest’s President and CEO, "Quest seeks to hire the best people for the job; those who are smart and capable and see the client as ‘king’, regardless of the employee’s background."

The Diverse 100 list focuses on solution provider organizations that have a founder, CEO or president that is a member of a recognized minority group. The Diverse 100 are ranked by revenue and include women, disabled individuals, veterans and Americans of Asian, African and Hispanic decent.

"CRN recognizes that successful organizations embrace diversity. A philosophy of inclusion is good for companies and for the industry at large. With this inaugural project we will highlight the benefits and best practices VARs can glean from creating a diverse workforce and showcase some of the leading minority-led solution providers in the market today," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.
