KIRKLAND, Wash., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CB Technologies, Inc., a Platinum HP Partner who takes pride in "Delivering Technology With a Human Touch," announced today that Kelly Ireland has been named to The Channel Company's prestigious 2015 CRN® Top 100 list. Ireland is named a top innovator among the best and brightest executives who push the technology envelope.

CRN's annual Top 100 list recognizes the efforts of agile decision-makers who play an integral role in evolving the way the channel does business. These 100 leaders, hand-picked by the CRN editorial staff, represent the pre-eminent innovators, influencers, disrupters and channel sales leaders in the IT channel today. 

The CRN Top 100 list is based on feedback gathered from technology solution providers throughout the year by CRN editors, with rankings reflecting executives' channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with their business and sales impact on the IT channel. Among the criteria considered are the channel sales volume of the companies they represent, as well as those vendors' channel investment and resources, channel advocacy, and performance in research projects conducted by The Channel Company's CRN Intelligence research arm, including its esteemed Annual Report Card and Channel Champions reports.

Kelly Ireland, CEO of CB Technologies, stated, "I am honored to be awarded such an inspiring accolade.  I completely attribute this to my very motivating and extremely dedicated team.  At CB Technologies, we view innovation as our service and we strive every day to provide that to our clients.  Innovation doesn't have to be big to be meaningful, it has to be timely and well executed.

We thrive at finding new ways to help our clients confront challenges, achieve goals or just make IT easier.  Being part of the channel ecosystem has been instrumental in finding capable and focused partners able to help create our vision.  Bringing together experts from their fields is one of our strengths and certainly one of the top requirements in envisioning, creating and delivering quality solutions."

"The CRN Top 100 list recognizes an elite group of executives that demonstrate leadership skills and innovation that propel the IT channel forward," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "Each individual named on this exclusive list has overcome business challenges and capitalized on opportunities while demonstrating a passion and dedication to the IT channel. This list is comprised of industry veterans with years of proven leadership as well as newcomers taking the channel by storm. All deserve recognition for their outstanding efforts in evolving the channel forward into new market opportunities."

The CRN Top 100 honorees will be featured in the August issue of CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and will be available online at www.crn.com.
