On October 8, CRN, the leading news and information resource for the IT channel ecosystem, recognized Zones as a winner of its 2018 Triple Crown Award. As one of the few companies to demonstrate the outstanding revenue, growth, and technical expertise required for membership in this elite group, Zones stands at the top echelon of solution providers in North America.
Each year, CRN publishes a number of lists and rankings to distinguish solution providers who are outshining their peers in the IT channel. Appearing on any one of these lists is a great accomplishment for a solution provider. To be ranked in three, as Zones did, is a truly significant achievement.
Triple Crown Award winners rank among the largest IT solution providers by revenue in North America on the Solution Provider 500 list; are among the fastest growing organizations in the channel today on the Fast Growth 150 list; and have made the Tech Elite 250 list by receiving the highest-level certifications from leading vendors.
“Each Triple Crown award-winner has simultaneously generated high enough revenue to be ranked on the Solution Provider 500 List, achieved double- or triple-digit revenue growth for recognition on the Fast Growth 150, and devoted significant time and effort to top certifications to attain Tech Elite 250 status,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company in announcing the award.
Winning this elite award is the direct result of continuous investment in people and processes. These efforts helped us achieve worldwide revenue of over $1 billion in 2011, and resulted in our crossing the $2 billion mark just six years later, in 2017.
“It is a privilege to be honored as a 2018 Triple Crown winner,” said Firoz Lalji, President, Chairman, and CEO of Zones, LLC. “This award showcases our respected position in the market, recognizes Zones as a top solution provider, and identifies us as one of the top growth companies in the channel. We continue to
experience growth ahead of market and have built solutions and services that scale across corporate customer segments, as well as healthcare and public sector verticals. It is our dedication to delivering five-star service to our customers that will bring us higher in 2019.”
Never a company to rest on our laurels, we continue to reinvest in our people, helping them earn advanced technical certifications from our vendor partners so we can provide unmatched technical expertise across our solution environments of Workplace Modernization, Network Optimization, Data Center Modernization, and Security Fortification.
