Annual list recognizes IT solution providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications 

Calgary, Alberta, April 6th  2015 – Long View today announced it has been named to The Channel Company’s CRN® Tech Elite 250. This annual list recognizes an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors.

In compiling the list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors collaborated to assess the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications—from vendors including Cisco, Citrix, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, NetApp, Microsoft, VMware and Symantec, among others—have enabled solution providers to deliver an outstanding level of premium products, services and support to their North American customers.

Continuous development is a large component of Long View’s culture, and as such Long View promises every employee the opportunity to participate in two to four training events per year. Long View is so dedicated to this mandate that it is in every employee’s offer letter. Long View is proud of all certification holders for their commitment to their craft and to continuous development.

“The solution providers selected for our annual Tech Elite 250 have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and gained industry credibility by investing in the IT certifications necessary to deliver exceptional service to their customers and stay competitive,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.“ These featured solution providers have enhanced and strengthened their partnerships by earning some of the most difficult certifications from some of the most prominent names in IT. We congratulate these organizations and look forward to their continued success.”

“This award is particularly important to us,” says Gord Mawhinney, CEO of Long View. “Learning and Development is mandated in our mission and vision, and as such every success for an employee turns into a success for Long View. We are proud to be recognized by CRN.”

Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
