Third Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers
Sacramento, CA, October 10, 2016 – Quest®, a technology management firm, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Quest with its esteemed 2016 Triple Crown Award. Fewer than 60 North American solution providers had the necessary revenue, growth, and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.
“We are honored to be selected for the CRN Triple Crown Award for the third year in a row,” stated Quest’s President and CEO, Tim Burke. “The continuing and often urgent needs of our customers drive us to resolve their issues and help them succeed. Our teams are expertly trained and dedicated to exceed customer expectations across the IT services spectrum including that of Incident Response and Security, Cloud, Managed, and Professional Services.”
CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers that are setting the bar in the IT industry, including the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest-level certifications from leading vendors. It is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of these lists; to make all three, however–as this year’s Triple Crown Award winners have done-is a big achievement. A company must simultaneously have enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 list, record double or triple-digit growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and invest heavily in top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status.
“The solution provider organizations receiving CRN’s 2016 Triple Crown Award have risen to the top of their class in not one or two, but three major categories: they are channel leaders in certification, revenue, and growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We commend the extraordinary series of achievements that earned each of them a spot on CRN’s premier solution provider lists and look forward to their continued innovation and leadership.”
The 2016 Triple Crown Award winners will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/triplecrown.
