Atlanta, GA, October 10, 2016 – Sovereign Systems today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Sovereign Systems with its esteemed 2016 Triple Crown Award for the third consecutive year. 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.
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.
“Winning the Triple Crown Award is an outstanding achievement and we are honored to be one of the 60 solution providers in the country to make the list,” said George Barkley, Managing Partner, Sovereign Systems. “This award showcases all of our achievements across three categories solidifying our place as a top solution provider for the third consecutive year. We will continue to make strides to delivering the best solutions for our clients and strengthening our strategic partnerships to continue bringing value to the IT industry.”
“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.
