Tech Elite 250 List Honors the Highest-Achieving IT Solution Providers in Vendor Certifications

Charlotte, NC, March 23, 2020 —Katalyst announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Katalyst 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, earningmultiple, 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.

Part of the culture at Katalyst is our passion around continuous learning. We understand that as a technology services company we need to have one foot in technology that we know well and one foot in the technology that is coming next. The Katalyst team recognizes that if we couple this passion for learning with the appropriate humility we’ll continue to have a growth mindset on our journey of professional development at every level of the company.

“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.”

“Katalyst is delighted to be recognized by CRN in the Tech Elite 250. We see this as a reflection of our relentless attention on our clients by focusing on how we can achieve tangible business outcomes as a starting point for every engagement,” said Chris Christy, CEO of Katalyst.
