Oceanside, CA, May 3, 2022 – Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting (DCAC), a full-service IT consulting company and Microsoft Gold Partner, was honored with two Gold and two Silver Stevie® Awards in the 20th Annual American Business Awards®. DCAC received:

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


Company of the Year

The ABA recognized DCAC’s achievements for their clients in architectural design, migrations, business intelligence, performance tuning and cybersecurity.


Judges cited:

Incredible story of hard work and diligence where the massive problem was ultimately resolved. Their metrics are impressive and show the momentum of the company.”


Best part was how DCAC translated its offerings and services into real business impacts for its clients.”


IT Team of the Year

ABA judges praised the team mentality, without egos, that characterizes DCAC. When D’Antoni got a 3am client emergency call, five DCAC consultants, all Microsoft MVPs, jumped into action, trading off around the clock from different time zones, to restore 14 terabytes of data for the mortgage lender…in just 40 hours.

Judges noted:

“Very good leadership, technical & managerial skills were demonstrated. Excellent view of the pulse of the problem and demonstrated skills of Subject Matter Experts who worked above and beyond to help resolve client’s problem. True achievers.”

“Monetary value of the problems solved are significant and represents the highly valued team.”


Tech Professional of the Year

It’s hard to stand out at a company comprised of world-renowned experts, but John Morehouse did. He supported clients and brought in new business, while also mentoring and teaching in the SQL community.


Judges stated:

“Wow, this guy is a SQL god.”

“I was blown away at the detail 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 booking consultants to near capacity and focusing on recurring monthly revenue in 2021 helped DCAC see extraordinary growth rates and land a third consecutive appearance on the Inc. 5000 list.


Judges said:

“I am definitely impressed by the triple-digit growth that has been able to achieve during merely a year worth of time, particularly in the pandemic which is the harshest business environment that one probably has been in in the past 2 decades.”


DCAC Founder, Denny Cherry, commented, “Thank you to the judges and especially to my team, who are so dedicated to the success of our clients. We’re thrilled to be recognized with some very well-known companies like Adobe, Cisco, and Qualcomm Technologies.”
