Blue Chip Tek Named CRN® Triple Crown Award Winner

Date: Oct 10, 2016

Third Annual Award Program Recognizes Standout Solution Providers

Santa Clara, CA, October 10, 2016 – Blue Chip Tek, Whatever IT Takes today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored Blue Chip Tek 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. 


CRN assembles lists and rankings each yearto 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 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 this year's Triple Crown Award winners have done—is a big achievement. 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.

Silicon Valley-based Blue Chip Tek, Inc. (, is a trusted IT consulting firm in the San Francisco/Bay Area, responsible for solving some of the most complex data center, high-performance infrastructure networking, cloud computing and high-volume storage challenges in the industry to date. Blue Chip Tek’s highly qualified engineers architect and implement technology solutions that have helped industry pillars and SMBs alike grow from pre-revenue startups into blue chip companies.


“We are so excited to be recognized with the Triple Crown award.  Technology continues to change at a faster rate than we’ve ever seen.  It is a great challenge to continue to adapt rapidly and deliver new and relevant solutions that help our customers achieve their initiatives and beat their own competitors to market.  Winning is fun.  Watching our customers achieve great things makes it even more fun.  We can only be successful at this level with the recommendations from our partners and customers because we deliver results.” said Jessica Geis, CEO at Blue Chip Tek, Inc.


“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.”
