Structured’s Technical Expertise Secures 9th Annual CRN Distinction

Advanced engineering certifications, specializations distinguish 2019 Tech Elite 250 honorees.

PORTLAND, Ore. (April 8, 2019) – Structured was recognized for the ninth consecutive year as part of the Tech Elite 250, North America’s most elite cadre of solution providers, as designated by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company.

This annual list honors a select group of firms that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers. These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

“Now, more than ever, businesses rely upon the competitive edge that a well-designed, secure, and responsive information technology architecture provides,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “They need to be able to trust the advice and expertise of a skilled solution provider as they make critical choices about where workloads should reside, how to best deliver a superior user experience, and how to provide their own IT professionals with more visibility, better analytics, and stronger defenses.”

To compile this annual list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Companies who have earned these elite designations— which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then identified and included in the annual list.

“Our engineers are dedicated to being top in their respective areas of expertise,” said Structured Chief Technology Officer Ty Trabosh. “They take a tremendous amount of pride in the certifications they acquire but also in the practical application of their knowledge.  Structured engineers are not only exceptional on paper; they are exceptional in the field.”

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list recognizes solution providers with extensive technical knowledge and premier certifications,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Pursuit of vendor certifications and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices proves a solution provider is committed to delivering maximum business value from those technologies and giving their customers the highest levels of service.”
