F3 Technology Partners Named CRN® Triple Crown Award Winner

Third Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers



West Hartford, Connecticut, October 10, 2016 – F3 Technology Partners today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored F3 Technology Partners with its esteemed 2016 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.  F3 Technology Partners will accept this prestigious award at CRN’s exclusive thought leadership conference, Best of Breed, where elite industry executives gather in Atlanta, GA this month to forge new partnerships, develop new strategies and set solution provider business agendas for the coming year.


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 of advanced technical 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, however—as F3 Technology Partners has done—is a big achievement. To be a 2016 Triple Crown Award Winner, 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.


President of F3 Technology Partners, Tom Colleary, said “We are proud to be recognized by CRN for this very prestigious award.  To meet the criteria for achievement in size, growth, and technical expertise demonstrates F3’s commitment to our people, our manufacturing partners, and our customers. “Our laser focus on providing best in class and innovative IT solutions has allowed us the opportunity to provide successful business outcomes for our customers and to invest and develop our people.  We are honored to part of such a distinguished group of “Best of Breed” solution providers.”


“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 will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
