Third Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers

Corus360, a technology company that strives to empower clients through people, technology, and resilience, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Corus360 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.

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.

This is the third consecutive year that Corus360 receives CRN’s Triple Crown Award, a clear indicator of consistent excellence. Corus360 has won the award every year since its inauguration in 2014 due to their dedication to providing high quality services to their clients. The company’s approach is to build, transform, and transition their clients’ environments in order to fulfill their clients’ specific business goals. Whether that means providing customers with the right people, the ideal technology, or seamless resilience, Corus360 utilizes this responsive, client-centric framework to repeatedly exceed expectations.

“Corus360’s achievement of CRN’s Triple Crown Award for three years in a row is proof that our people-focused strategy works,” said Steve Johnson, President of Corus360. “By making our customers and their needs our top priority, we are able to drive positive outcomes that transform their businesses, enabling them to achieve their goals by implementing solutions that provide them with the technology and resources needed for their unique circumstances.”

“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
