CCB Technology named to CRN Elite 150 category of MSP 500
Racine, WI, February 16, 2016 – CCB Technology, a national provider of business IT solutions and services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CCB to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their top-notch offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
“To be considered CRN’s Elite class is just mind-blowing for me, and our excitement is off the charts. We’ve done a lot of hard work as a team to get here,” said CCB President, Patrick Booth. “Being honored gives us the motivation to continue providing our customers with the best IT services and solutions available anywhere. The people we hire and the talents they bring led us to this award. It’s extraordinary to see.”
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
CCB has been honored by CRN numerous times, including placement on the Solution Provider 500 list for seven consecutive years as one of the top revenue-generating technology integrators in North America. CCB was also named to the Tech Elite 250 in 2015 for investing in the training needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors. Vice President of Marketing Melody Bernhardt was named to the 2015 CRN Women of the Channel Power 50 based on her accomplishments and influence in the technology channel.
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
