Reston, Virginia March 20, 2024 — ThunderCat Technology today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has honored ThunderCat on its 2024 Tech Elite 250 list. This is ThunderCat’s 11th year on the list.

This yearly compilation showcases solution providers based in the U.S. and Canada, that have distinguished themselves by attaining top-tier certifications and specializations from leading technology vendors in the areas of infrastructure, cloud, and security.

To help customers navigate today’s IT complexities and harness the advantages of state-of-the-art solutions, solution providers—ranging from strategic service providers and systems integrators to managed service providers and value-added resellers—strive to uphold rigorous levels of training and certification from strategic IT vendors, often aiming for the pinnacle tiers within these vendors’ partner programs.

“ThunderCat is honored to have made this list 11 times.  Honestly, I consider it a requirement for our team to earn our spot on this list each year.  As a Value Added Reseller we have always believed is it our responsibility to have competencies across multiple disciplines. To be a trusted advisor to our customers and prospects we believe we must be experts in many areas to give proper objective and independent advice on what they need for their particular goals and current architecture.  That includes cyber, cloud, networking, storage and now all the emerging AI platforms and tools.  We are proud to be on this list and will remain vigilant to stay current on best-in-class technologies and providers including AWS, Cisco, Dell, HPE, Intel and Broadcom.” said ThunderCat’s CEO, Tom Deierlein.

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 highlights leading-edge solution providers within the IT landscape, distinguished by their comprehensive technical proficiency, expertise, and commitment to achieving top-level certifications in critical technology areas,” said Jennifer Follett, VP, U.S. Content, and Executive Editor of CRN at The Channel Company. “These solution providers persistently strengthen their capabilities to bring the advanced IT solutions to market that customers need.”
