Joe Shields, President of IP Pathways stated, “We are honored by our inclusion in CRN’s 2013 Elite 250. This award speaks to the investments we have made into our organization and the talent we have on our engineering team. When we founded the company in 2007, we set out to be the Midwest leader in data center infrastructure expertise and our inclusion on the prestigious list really says we are on the right track."
“The 2013 Tech Elite 250 list recognizes an exclusive group of solution providers that have invested in training and technical know-how to help their customers understand the benefits of some of the most sophisticated technology deployments in the market – and have shown a dedication to helping customers innovate while reducing costs,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President, Editorial Director at UBM Tech Channel. “By identifying and adapting to the skills and training needed to best serve today’s customers, members of the Tech Elite 250 have proven their commitment to delivering the products and services that today’s customers value most.”
