Structured Named to CRN Tech Elite 250 List for 4th Consecutive Year
Annual List recognizes IT Solution Providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 15, 2014) – Structured today announced it has been named to CRN’s annual list of the Tech Elite 250 for the fourth consecutive year. These companies represent an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors. In compiling the list, CRN editors worked with The Channel Company’s research group to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications – from vendors such as Cisco, Citrix, Dell, HP, IBM, NetApp, Microsoft, Symantec and VMware – have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, service and support to their North American customers. “Our customers deserve a partner who demonstrates real vision, competency and value when it comes to recommending and deploying business-critical IT infrastructures,” said Ron Fowler, Structured president and CEO. “It is our duty and privilege to ensure Structured’s engineers possess the most current and rigorous technical certifications that our manufacturer partners have to offer.” For more than 20 years, technical excellence has been Structured’s hallmark. Once the company’s leadership team determines that a manufacturer offers a compelling, best-of-breed product for the marketplace, the company strives to become that manufacturer’s top-tier partner. Time after time, Structured’s engineering, sales and service teams work together to meet, and ultimately exceed, the high technical standards of the IT industry’s leading manufacturers. “The solution providers highlighted on our annual Tech Elite 250 have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained industry credibility by investing in the IT certifications necessary to stay competitive and deliver the highest level of service to their customers, “ said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These featured solution providers have enhanced and strengthened their partnerships by earning some of the most difficult certifications from some of the biggest names in IT. We congratulate these organizations and look forward to their continued success.” “Our unwavering commitment to technical excellence is what separates Structured from so many of our competitors,” said Fowler. “We are pleased and honored to be recognized by CRN and The Channel Company again this year, but, frankly, we’d pursue the industry’s toughest certifications even if there were no accolades. It is just the right thing to do for our customers.” Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
