Sterling Named to 2020 CRN Tech Elite 250

North Sioux City, SD, April 24, 2020 –

Sterling announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Sterling to its 2020 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list acknowledges the top tier of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size. These organizations have differentiated themselves as premier solution providers, earning multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations, and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers.

Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-centric technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these elite designations — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services, and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

“Our teams prioritize the attainment of advanced technical certifications from each of our industry partners,” said Chris Cyr, Sterling’s CTO. “By obtaining expertise across all segments, we are better equipped to provide a range of products, solutions and services to better serve our customers.”

Sterling has been a member of CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list for nine years running. Sterling attributes its successes to the level of engineers and solution architects: their skill sets, certifications achieved, and the complex solutions designed, implemented, and deployed.

“Solution providers that continue to pursue vendor certifications and extend their skill sets across various technologies and IT practices are proving their commitment to delivering the greatest business value to their customers through an incomparable level of service,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our CRN Tech Elite 250 list recognizes leading solution providers with expansive technical knowledge and esteemed certifications for exactly that reason.”
