Align Receives CRN Triple Crown Award

Another Crowning Achievement for Align: Recognition of Remarkable IT Market Leadership

New York, NY, October 17, 2023 – Align, the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions proudly announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Align as a 2023 Triple Crown Award winner. The Triple Crown Award is a coveted accolade exclusively for a select group of companies that earn a position on all three of CRN’s prestigious solution provider award lists within a single calendar year.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the CRN Triple Crown Award, which spotlights the top North American solution providers for displaying a tireless commitment to achieving high revenue, company growth, and unparalleled technical expertise within the IT channel.

To qualify for the CRN Triple Crown Award, companies must attain a coveted spot on CRN’s Solution Provider 500, a ranking of the largest IT solution providers by revenue in North America; the Fast Growth 150, a ranking of high-growth organizations in the channel; and the Tech Elite 250, which recognizes solution providers that have attained top-level certifications from leading technology vendors in the industry. Being chosen for even one of these prestigious lists is an honor worth celebrating but meriting a spot on all three lists in a single year demonstrates a rare combination of market leadership, sales acumen and technical prowess.

Align’s exceptional dedication and outstanding accomplishments in the realm of Managed Services has demonstrated the value of their Managed Services offering to clients and partners, earning them these three prestigious recognitions. From general success in the form of revenue earning a spot on the Solution Provider 500, to a commitment to innovation aligning with the recognition on the Fast Growth 150 list, and the industry passion and skill that earned a ranking on the Tech Elite 250, Align has had a banner year.

"We are thrilled to have been awarded the Triple CrownChris Zadrima recognition a second consecutive year from CRN,” said Chris Zadrima, Managing Director, Managed Services of Align. “Despite significant challenges faced by the IT industry and channel over the past several years, Align has not only persevered but thrived. We've expanded our offerings, enhanced our expertise, and achieved remarkable growth. This Triple Crown validates our position as an industry leader."

Blaine Raddon, the CEO of The Channel Company, expressed his excitement and congratulations to the top solution providers who have achieved the prestigious Triple Crown Award. “These providers have not only demonstrated exceptional revenue growth in North America but have also surpassed many other channel organizations in terms of their progress. They have successfully maintained and enhanced their technical skills, resulting in the highest level of service in the IT channel.” Raddon emphasized that “this award represents the pinnacle of honor, recognizing truly extraordinary solution providers who consistently exceed expectations in their contributions to the channel and the industry's future through their unwavering dedication and expertise.”

This year’s Triple Crown Award winners will be featured in the October 2023 issue of CRN and online here.
