Distribution Central was the only Aussie distie on the list, with BRW placing it at number 31.

The company most recently expanded its security offering across A/NZ by adding network security vendor, Palo Alto Networks, to its portfolio and also inked a Fujitsu servers deal in its first foray into the server market.

"It's an incredible honour to have our own staff recognise us this way for five consecutive years. What really matters is we have been able to manage quite a sizeable business for more than nine years, never made a redundancy and have always offered pay increases throughout all kinds of financial, economic, industry and societal disruptions," Distribution Central managing director, Nick Verykios, said.

IT solutions company, Kiandra IT, climbed up to the 23rd spot from its 29th position last year, making it the fifth time in a row that the company has been featured on the list.

Kiandra IT managing director, Cameron Brookes, said its people are integral to the business and claimed that it plans to increase its workforce by 35 per cent over the next 18 months to cater for the growth in demand for its services.

"If we cannot attract and retain the very best our industry has to offer, then we cannot provide the calibre of solutions and level of service we expect, and our customers deserve. Investing in culture and employment brand is vital in making Kiandra attractive to the most talented people," he said.

Altis Consulting (ranked 19th) has been on the list for the fourth year running.

Altis Consulting CEO, John Hoffman, attributed much of its growth and success to a family-friendly work environment that is directed and driven very much by its employees.

"While many companies talk about empowering their staff, Altis Consulting is actually expanding its services, its geographic footprint and its reputation with customers by letting staff create many of their own, and the company's opportunities and advancements," Hoffman added.

Other ICT companies on the top 50 include: Readify (ranked 15th), Ansarada (ranked 17th), SAS Institute (ranked 18th), Rackspace Hosting (ranked 27th), 4mation Technologies (ranked 29th), Campaign Monitor (ranked 33rd), PageUp People (ranked 34th), Hitachi Data Systems (ranked 36th), Adobe (ranked 37th), Webqem (ranked 40th), ThoughtWorks (ranked 49th), and Autodesk (ranked 50th).
