RAMSEY, NJ--(Marketwired - October 20, 2016) - Comport Consulting Corp. today announced that it has been honored with CRN's® esteemed 2016 Triple Crown Award. Fewer than 60 North American IT 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.
The 2016 Triple Crown industry award is Comport's second Triple Crown in two years. This is extremely difficult to achieve, given IT industry dynamics and strict requirements across multiple dimensions. Comport is particularly proud of having earned the TechElite 250 award, one of the Triple Crown pillars, for the last 5 years since its inception, a strong endorsement of Comport's technical certifications and industry-leading expertise.
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.
Comport specializes in data center transformations and modernization for commercial and healthcare enterprises. "We are helping CIOs understand that the IT game has changed, and how to get a winning new hybrid IT game plan," stated Jack Margossian, President and CEO of Comport. "I want to recognize that this award is really about excellent partnerships with our customers, our dedicated employees, and third-party suppliers and vendors. We sincerely thank each and every person that is driving our success."
"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.
