Jim Kavanaugh is winning. World Wide Technology (WWT), the IT and managed services company he’s captained since its launch in 1990, topped the $10 billion sales revenue mark last year. That’s a healthy climb from the $9.3 billion mark the company hit in 2016. During 2017, WWT also moved into a new $95 million St. Louis corporate headquarters building and added some 500 new employees.
Those are giant milestones, but they’re not the sources of Kavanaugh’s greatest pride as CEO of the sprawling privately held company. That pride is reserved for the host of associate benefits that Kavanaugh has driven for the company’s 4,000-strong workforce, most recently marked by an on-site healthcare initiative in collaboration with Mercy health systems.
