Dawn Sizer of 3rd Element Consulting, Inc Recognized as a Power 60 Solution Provider Among CRN’s 2021 Women of the Channel

Mechanicsburg, PA May 10, 2021 — 3rd Element Consulting, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Dawn Sizer, CEO, to its 2021 Power 60 Solution Providers list, an elite subgroup of honorees chosen from the highly regarded Women of the Channel list.

The women honored on this year’s list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication and channel advocacy.

The Power 60 Solution Providers are chosen by the CRN editorial team based on their contributions, expertise and dedication to building strong solution provider businesses. The award recognizes an exclusive subgroup of elite industry role models who continue to drive professional success through leadership and dedication to their own organizations and the entire IT channel.

During the past year, Dawn was instrumental in implementing several initiatives, including business continuity planning and cloud solutions, that helped her client base survive a global pandemic. Dawn expanded and strengthened the list of key strategic channel partners whose offerings were critical to the success of both her own organization as well as her clients. She created jobs during a struggling economy, and pushed her organization to record earnings, more than doubling her business in one year.

Dawn was a speaker at a series of national events for CRN and ASCII throughout last year. She continues to serve the channel as the Board Director of the Channel Company Xchange Advisory Board. In addition, she leads ASCII’s Women’s Network. Dawn has written articles for such publications as Commercial Integrator, TechTarget, and MSP Insights. Her podcast, Rebel Executives, provides insight, guidance, and mentoring to business owners and entrepreneurs internationally.

“CRN’s 2021 Women of the Channel list acknowledges accomplished, influential women whose dedication, hard work, and leadership accelerate channel growth,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their many accomplishments and look forward to their continued contributions to the IT channel.”

“Dawn has proven to be a powerhouse of a leader, with a laser focus on the success of not only her own business, but the success of her clients and partners across the Channel. Her dedication to every person she works with, whether it is an employee, a client, or just another businessperson seeking guidance, is an inspiration to everyone around her.” – David Sizer, Chief Operation Officer

The 2021 Women of the Channel and Power 60 Solution Provider award will be featured in CRN Magazine on May 10th and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC.
