Sterling Named CRN Triple Crown Award Winner

Fourth Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers

DAKOTA DUNES, S.D., Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sterling Computers announced this week that CRN, a brand of the Channel Company, has honored them with its esteemed 2017 Triple Crown Award. Sterling was among just forty North American solution providers who had the qualifying revenue, growth, and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s preeminent solution provider lists, thus earning them the distinction of a Triple Crown Award winner.

“We’re delighted to earn this distinction,” states Brad Moore, President of Sterling, “as it’s a culmination of the awards and recognition we’ve received from CRN throughout the year. It’s rewarding to see our growth reflected in this way, a reminder of the efforts our partners and staff invest each day.”

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 all three, however—as this year's Triple Crown Award winners have done—is a huge achievement. A company must simultaneously earn 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 year’s CRN Triple Crown Award winners,” says Robert Faletra, CEO of the Channel Company, “boast multiple advanced technical certifications from leading vendors, rank among the top-earning IT solution providers in North America, and are some of the fastest-growing organizations in the channel today. These over-achieving businesses have set the standard for success in the strategic service provider era and are leading the channel into an exciting new future.”

The 2017 Triple Crown Award winners will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
