Structured’s Engineering Excellence Recognized Among the ‘Tech Elite’


Firm named to CRN Tech Elite 250 list for 14th straight year, demonstrating top skills across North America in security, digital infrastructure, cloud and emerging technology sectors.

PORTLAND, Ore. (March 21, 2024) – Structured, a leading provider of IT solutions and professional services, proudly announced today that it was named to the 2024 Tech Elite 250 list by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This annual list features solution providers across the U.S. and Canada that have dedicated themselves to achieving the highest level and largest breadth of certifications and specializations from leading and emerging technology vendors.

This commitment to technical excellence is a differentiating factor in the marketplace. It also serves as a positive indicator to customers that they are working with knowledgeable and competent professionals across an array of technologies with critical dependencies that can influence business outcomes.

“Whether our customers choose to standardize on a particular technology platform or adopt a ‘best-of-breed’ approach, the reality is that modern distributed networks present a host of complexities that many internal IT teams do not have the time or resources to address,” said Structured CTO Ty Trabosh. “This is where Structured’s professional engineering services add significant value.”

“Our established processes, deep engineering bench, cross-team collaboration, and economies of scale can be more cost effective than hiring or training in-house staff, especially for short-term or specialized projects,” Trabosh added.

As the global shortage of adequately skilled IT and cybersecurity professionals persists, companies still turn to Structured for guidance and help across the traditional tech spectrum, including security and compliance, data center modernization, cloud services, enterprise networking, carrier services, and unified communications and collaboration. But these worldwide skills gaps also increasingly lead to professional engagements that help enterprise IT take advantage of emerging technologies built on machine learning and AI.

“Structured has a proud and distinguished past rooted in keeping our eyes firmly fixed on the future,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “This dedication extends to ensuring our engineers are prepared to complete the work that our customers most need us to do. Whether it is helping them accommodate Microsoft’s innovations in AI, mitigate their regulatory compliance risk through penetration testing, or build a better and more secure network edge, we are here to take that on.”

Companies that work with Structured can leverage specialized expertise, access the latest technologies, mitigate risks and, ultimately, achieve their business objectives more effectively and often with a greater return on investment.

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 highlights leading-edge solution providers within the IT landscape, distinguished by their comprehensive technical proficiency, expertise, and commitment to achieving top-level certifications in critical technology areas,” said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. content, and executive editor of CRN at The Channel Company. “These solution providers persistently strengthen their capabilities to bring the advanced IT solutions to market that customers need.”
