CIO Solutions Recognized on CRN® 2024 MSP 500 List

Santa Barbara, CA, February 13, 2024 — CIO Solutions, Productivity Enhanced, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CIO Solutions to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category for 2024.

The MSP 500 list is compiled by CRN annually and serves as a comprehensive guide to identifying and recognizing the top Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in North America. The MSP 500 list aims to showcase and celebrate MSPs that are driving growth and innovation in the industry. These service providers not only enable businesses to harness complex technologies but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals without stretching financial resources.

The MSP Pioneer 250 section of the annual MSP 500 list recognizes companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market. By providing comprehensive managed strategy, infrastructure, and support services, MSPs like CIO Solutions offer small to medium businesses access to the resources and benefits of a robust IT department without the hassle and cost of building and managing it themselves. Access to these expert services is more important than ever in today’s technology-dependent business landscape. For those businesses, MSPs enhance efficiency, simplify technology management, mature IT solutions, and optimize return on IT investments.

CIO Solutions serves over 300 California businesses ranging in size from 10-500+ employees. Their services include a robust support system designed with a “first contact resolution” support model, strategic technology planning services, a dedicated network operations center, and extensive infrastructure project and management services. Over the past 10 years, they have expanded their geographical reach to better serve clients throughout Central California and beyond, with three locally serving offices and 100 employees overall.

They embrace a forward-thinking approach and offer solutions that are not only proven and tested, but innovative. Among CIO Solutions’ offerings are advanced cloud computing, next-generation managed security, and modern office solutions. They maintain global partnerships including Citrix, Microsoft, Datto, and CrowdStrike.

Jennifer Follett, VP of US Content and executive Editor CRN, The Channel Company, emphasized the significance of managed services for businesses at various scales, stating, “Managed services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability throughout their growth journey. The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”

Eric Egolf, CEO of CIO Solutions, says “We are thrilled to be recognized as an MSP 500 recipient. It is a reflection of our focus on matching our service offerings with the constantly evolving landscape in the MSP space. It’s fun to remember how different that MSP space was just 6 years ago and how quickly it continues to evolve.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2024 issue of CRN and online at
