CompTIA Wins 2012 ChannelPro Readers’ Choice Award

Recognized as Best Membership Organization

Downers Grove, Ill., June 1, 2012CompTIA, the non-profit association for the information technology (IT) industry, announced today it has received the 2012 ChannelPro Readers’ Choice Award for Best Membership Organization.

The award is based on the votes of nearly 1,000 value-added resellers, managed services providers, systems integrators, custom builders, IT consultants and other readers of ChannelPro-SMB, who cast ballots in the channel’s first SMB-focused Readers’ Choice Awards competition.

“Our readers are as passionate and selective about the tools they choose for their businesses as they are about the technologies they offer to their SMB clients,” said Cecilia Galvin, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB. “We were gratified to see such a high level of enthusiasm for the survey on the part of our readers, helping us compile the first rankings of their kind for SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them.”

“We’re extremely pleased to receive this honor from ChannelPro-SMB and its readers,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and chief executive officer, CompTIA. “We’ve made a strong commitment in the last several years to expand our engagement with the IT channel – through education, certification, advocacy and philanthropy. While our efforts touch the entire channel, we’re particularly focused on the needs of the small IT firms and entrepreneurs that make up the large majority of the channel. This award signifies that we’re on the right track.”

ChannelPro-SMB readers were asked to cast their votes for the most SMB- and partner-friendly channel products, technologies, services, programs and professional organizations in 62 categories. For each category, they were asked to select the option that best satisfies the unique business requirements, work styles and budgets of their small and midsize business clients, as well as those that best serve their own partner organizations.

The ChannelPro Network provides targeted business and technology information for the IT channel. Via ChannelPro SMB magazine, events, and our online properties, the network delivers expert opinion, analysis, news, product reviews, and advice vital to a reseller's business success.
