Impact Named CRN ® Triple Crown Award Winner

Lake Forest, IL, October 8, 2018 – Impact, a leading managed service provider, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Impact for earning it’s 2018 Triple Crown Award. This year 46 solution providers in North America reached the qualifying revenue, growth, and technical expertise to be named on three of CRN’s prestigious solution provider lists, earning them the Triple Crown Award this year.

Each year CRN announces lists and rankings to distinguish solution providers who are outshining their peers in the IT channel. It is a great accomplishment for a solution provider to make any one of these lists; so being named in three, as this year’s Triple Crown winners have been, deserves special acknowledgement. This year’s CRN 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.

Founded in 1999, Impact employs over 550 people at its 17 locations throughout the Midwest and West Coast, and specializes in business process optimization through the conception, development and execution of enterprise data & document strategies. Impact offers clients managed IT and cloud solutions, business process optimization, design and marketing and print management services. Impact was listed #47 on the 2018 Fast Growth 150 list, #212 on the 2018 Solution Provider 500 list and on the Tech Elite 250 list (which is unranked).

“We are very excited to earn this recognition as a 2018 CRN Triple Crown Award winner. This award is one of the highest honors that a channel partner can receive, and we are very proud of our company’s success over the past year,” said Frank Cucco, Impact CEO. “We owe this award to our incredible employees whose continued efforts and dedication to Impact’s vision have made our continued growth possible.”

“Each Triple Crown award-winner has simultaneously generated high enough revenue to be be rankedon 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. “Congratulations to each one of these high-achieving companies who continue to raise the bar for success in the IT Channel.”
