This is the third year CRN has created its annual list and each time Contegix has been honored.
“Contegix’s approach to managed services enables customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage,” said Matthew Porter, CEO, Contegix. “To be a repeat member of the MSP list is a feather in our cap, knowing we continuously work to provide the industry’s best cloud, colocation and managed hosting solutions delivered with our renowned Go BeyondTM support.”

The list is divided into three categories:
- MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market;
- MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services;
- and, MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
