Structured Named to CRN® List of Tech Elite Solution Providers for 7th Year

Prestigious list recognizes IT solution providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications.  

PORTLAND, Ore. (April 7, 2017) – Structured announced today that it was included among the distinguished companies composing the 2017 Tech Elite 250 list compiled by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This is the seventh consecutive year Structured has been tapped.

This annual list honors an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology vendors. Structured has been included on the list every year since its inception in 2011.

“Structured’s purpose is to provide customers with expert guidance and support across an array of IT disciplines,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “Our customers deserve the best so we must be the best. We achieve excellence by prioritizing advanced technical training and certifications so that our engineers and consultants are prepared to lead in every situation.”

To compile the annual list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have obtained these elite designations—which enable them to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

“IT has shifted dramatically in the 25 years since Structured was founded,” said Fowler. “Virtualization, next-generation security models, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and now digital transformation initiatives in business require significant dedication to and an investment in learning. Many solution providers that didn’t adapt were forced out of business. We remain vigilant about identifying emerging trends and making sure we have the knowledge and expertise to excel.”

“This exclusive, ambitious group of solution providers boasts some of the most advanced IT certifications available from top technology suppliers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “They have adapted impressively to major changes in the IT channel, especially the shift to a more services-driven market, by expanding their skill sets and sharpening both their technical and customer service expertise. Congratulations to our 2017 list, whose robust investment in their organizations has earned them yet another elite designation—the CRN Tech Elite 250.”
