MNJ Technologies Earns CRN® Tech Elite 250 Honors for 8th Consecutive Year

Named to 2021 List Recognizing Solution Providers with Leading IT Certifications

BUFFALO GROVE, IL (March XX, 2021)

MNJ Technologies, a midmarket-focused IT solutions and managed services provider, announced today that it has been named to the 2021 Tech Elite 250 list compiled by CRN® , a brand of The Channel Company. This marks MNJ’s eighth consecutive appearance on the Tech Elite roster, which recognizes channel partners with the strongest mix of IT certifications and high-tier partner program designations from the industry’s top technology providers. 

MNJ is a Cisco Premier Certified Partner, Dell Platinum Level Partner, HPE Platinum Level Partner, and VMware Level Advanced Partner, with multiple technical certifications earned from each vendor. The company also has earned advanced certifications from other leading technology suppliers including AWS, Fortinet, IBM, Juniper, Microsoft, NetApp, Oracle and Palo Alto.

 “One reason we have more than 3,000 active customers is our success in designing and implementing technology solutions that help mid-sized companies drive digital transformation and associated business value. That in turn is directly related to the deep investments we make in technology training,” said Ben Niernberg, MNJ Chief Operating Officer. “Whether it’s cloud, networking, connectivity or other needs, we have expertise across a broad portfolio of technologies that can help customers optimize operations and gain competitive advantage in today’s complex business landscape.” 

Each year, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors distinguish the most client-driven technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Solution providers that have earned these high honors — enabling them to deliver exclusive products, services and customer support — are then selected from a pool of online applicants as well as from The Channel Company’s solution provider database. 

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list highlights the top solution providers in the IT channel with the most in-depth technical knowledge, expertise and certifications for providing the best level of service for their customers,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “These solution providers have continued to extend their talents and abilities across various technologies and IT practices, demonstrating their commitment to really conveying the most exceptional business value to their customers.” 

Coverage of the Tech Elite 250 will be featured in the April issue of CRN® Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/techelite250.
