OCEANSIDE, CA, May 04, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting (DCAC), a full-service IT consulting firm and Microsoft Gold Partner, received two Gold and two Silver Stevie® Awards at the 20th Annual American Business Awards®. DCAC received:

* GOLD for Business of the Year – Business and Professional Services – Small
* GOLD for Information Technology Team of the Year – Microsoft MVP Team: Denny Cherry, Joey D’Antoni, Monica Rathbun, John Morehouse and Meagan Longoria
* SILVER for Technical Professional of the Year – John Morehouse
* SILVER for Fastest Growing Tech Company of the Year – up to 100 employees

More than 3,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and virtually every industry were submitted for consideration this year in a wide range of categories at the American Business Awards and more than 240 professionals from around the world participated in the selection process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

Company of the year
The ABA recognized DCAC’s achievements for its clients in the areas of architectural design, migrations, business intelligence, performance optimization and cybersecurity.

Judges cited:
“An incredible story of hard work and diligence where the huge problem was finally solved. Their statistics are impressive and show the momentum of the company.”
“The best part was how DCAC translated its offerings and services into real business impacts for its clients.”

IT Team of the Year
The ABA judges praised the team, egoless mentality that characterizes DCAC. When D’Antoni received an emergency call from a client at 3 a.m., five DCAC consultants, all Microsoft MVPs, sprang into action, trading around the clock from different time zones, to restore 14 terabytes of data for the mortgage lender… in just 40 hours.

The judges noted:
“Very good leadership, technical and managerial skills were demonstrated. Excellent insight into the pulse of the problem and demonstrated skill of subject matter experts who worked above and beyond to help solve the customer’s problem. Real performers.
“The monetary value of the issues resolved is significant and represents the highly valued team.”

Technology Professional of the Year
It’s hard to stand out in a company full of world-renowned experts, but John Morehouse did it. He supported clients and brought in new business, while coaching and teaching within the SQL community.

The judges said:
“Wow, this guy is an SQL god.”
“I was blown away by the details of John’s work, not just in his workplace, but in the SQL Server community and beyond.”

Fastest Growing Tech Company of the Year
A new sales director who is booking consultants near capacity and focusing on recurring monthly revenue in 2021 has helped DCAC see extraordinary growth rates and land a third straight appearance on the Inc. 5000 list.

The judges said:
“I’m really impressed with the triple digit growth DCAC has been able to achieve in just one year, especially in the pandemic which is probably the most challenging business environment we’ve been in in the last 2 decades.”

DCAC Founder Denny Cherry commented, “Thank you to the judges and especially my team who are so dedicated to the success of our clients. We are delighted to be recognized by well-known companies such as Adobe, Cisco and Qualcomm Technologies.
