3rd Element Made The 2021 MSP 500 List

Mechanicsburg, PA  February 16, 2021 – 3rd Element Consulting, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named 3rd Element Consulting to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. The list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. These services help end users improve operational efficiencies and navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions, while maximizing their return on IT investments.

With cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services, MSPs have become an integral part of the success of businesses worldwide. They help empower organizations to leverage complex technologies, keeping a strict focus on their core business without straining their budgets. CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list identifies the market’s key managed services players who are setting themselves apart with best-of-breed solutions that provide the business outcomes customers need.

The MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

“Effective MSPs enable companies to focus on their core objectives while improving the quality and reliability of their cloud computing capabilities,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list deserve recognition for their innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services, and the ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.”


“We are humbled by the prestigious honor and recognition from CRN.  We were excited to be able to share our award with our clients and friends.” Said Dawn Sizer, CEO of 3rd Element.  We’ve come a long way, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the help and commitment of each member of our team.  We couldn’t have done this without them!”


The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
