Connectria Hosting, the #1 ranked Cloud in North America, today announced it has been recognized by UBM Tech Channel as a part of CRN’s 2013 Solution Provider 500 list (SP500). The SP500 identifies the top technology companies in the U.S.A. and Canada based on revenue size. Formerly known as the “VAR 500”, the Solution Provider 500 ranks the highest producing solution provider organizations in the IT channel from hardware sales, software sales, and managed IT services. Connectria placed #455 in the annual ranking, improving 4 places over its 2012 rank.
“We are honored to have made CRN’s SP500 list for the second consecutive year,” noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “I’d like to thank CRN, our employees, partners and above all, our customers who share in this recognition. Our continued growth would not be possible without our commitment to our ‘No Jerks Allowed® policy,’ which demands our employees treat everyone with respect and to routinely ‘go the extra mile’ to do what’s right for our partners and customers.”
“We aim to highlight the ‘best of the best’ among the channel community, and the Solution Provider 500 is no exception. Now in its 18th year, this prestigious list serves as a valuable industry resource to help end users quickly identify top performers and make the most well-informed choices for their business,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies listed have a forward-thinking approach to solutions sales. They are also highly dedicated to putting their customers’ needs first to accelerate the adoption of innovative technology and drive immediate results. We congratulate Connectria Hosting for making this year’s list and look forward to covering their continued success.”
The 2013 Solution Provider 500 list category awards will be presented at the BoB thought leadership conference in October. A sampling of the 2013 SP500 list is featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and is featured online at www.crn.com.
