Third annual award program recognizes standout solution providers.
OneNeck IT Solutions announced today they are a 2016 Triple Crown Award recipient. Presented by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, it’s the second year in a row OneNeck is receiving the Triple Crown Award, which is again being presented to fewer than 60 North American solution providers.
To earn a Triple Crown Award, providers must have the necessary revenue, growth and technical expertise to place on CRN’s three pre-eminent solution provider lists. The lists, which CRN assembles annually to recognize solution providers who are setting the bar in the IT industry, include:
- Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue;
- Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and
- Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest-level certifications from leading vendors.
According to CRN, it is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of the lists; to make it on all three, however—as the Triple Crown Award winners have—is a major achievement. A company must simultaneously have enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 list, record double- or triple-digit growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and invest heavily in top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status.
“We are thrilled to again earn the Triple Crown Award,” says Phil LaForge, president and CEO of OneNeck. “We have a highly skilled and deeply caring team of professionals. When combined with a healthy, happy base of growing customers, it adds up to a winning Triple Crown recipe. Hats off to the OneNeck team for all their effort and making this happen.”

“The solution provider organizations receiving CRN’s 2016 Triple Crown Award have risen to the top of their class in not one or two, but three major categories: They are channel leaders in certification, revenue and growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We commend the extraordinary series of achievements that earned each of them a spot on CRN’s premier solution provider lists and look forward to their continued innovation and leadership.”
The 2016 Triple Crown Award winners are featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online.
