CLAREMONT, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New Hampshire-based Red River, a leading federal information technology (IT) services provider, announced that it has been honored by The Channel Company with the esteemed 2015 CRN® Triple Crown Award. Fewer than 60 North American solution providers had the necessary revenue, growth and technical expertise to be recognized on three of CRN’s pre-eminent solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year. When considering the combined rankings of all three lists, Red River was first among Triple Crown Award winners with Tech Elite 250 status and rankings on the Solution Provider 500 (#49) and Fast Growth 150 lists (#38).
“Red River is honored by this recognition and considers it fuel for our continued growth as well as a driver for furthering our solutions excellence and exceptional technical capacity,” said Jeff Sessions, senior vice president, Corporate Strategy for Red River.
CRN assembles lists and rankings each year to recognize solution providers who are setting the bar in the IT industry, including the Solution Provider 500, which lists the largest solution providers in North America by revenue; the Fast Growth 150, which ranks the fastest-growing solution providers; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have received the highest level certifications from leading vendors.
It is a considerable achievement for a solution provider to make any one of these lists. To make it onto all three, as Red River has done, places the company at an elite level in the solutions provider community. Triple Crown Award winners 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.
A recognized industry front-runner for revenue growth and superior expertise in Cloud, Converged Infrastructure, Mobility, and the Software-Defined Data Center, Red River has quickly become the go-to solution provider for government agencies and commercial organizations seeking next-generation IT focus, solutions and services delivery. Within a challenging business climate, Red River has overseen dramatic yet focused growth in 2015, increasing revenues and headcount, expanding its $75 Billion strategic contract portfolio, establishing a dedicated Digital and Cloud Practice, opening a new sales and program office in Reston, VA, and building upon its long list of advanced technical certifications.
"I am continually amazed by the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the solution providers that drive the IT channel," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The companies that have earned this year's CRN Triple Crown award are truly among the industry's elite, showing the depth and breadth of sales, technical and marketing expertise to earn recognition on our premier lists. We congratulate each of these leading solution providers and look forward to watching them thrive in the future."
