Copper River IT Named CRN Triple Crown Award Winner 2016

Third Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers

Chantilly, VA October 10, 2016 – Copper River IT, leading provider of comprehensive Information Technology products, services and solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Copper River IT 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 all three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.

CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers who 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 it onto 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.

“We are both humbled and honored to be recognized for such a prestigious award” explains Vice President of Sales, Jennifer Keating. “It is our passion for solving our customer’s greatest technology challenges that drives our commitment to hold the highest level technical certifications and to provide innovative, next-generation products and services. It is only through our customer’s successes that we have been able to see our own.”

“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
