Ridgeland, Miss, (March 2, 2023) — C Spire Business has been named one of the top 150 Managed Service Providers (MPS) in North America in 2023 by CRN®, a top technology news and information source for solutions providers, and a brand of The Channel Company.

The business division of the Southeastern U.S.—based diversified telecommunications and technology services company made the MSP 500 list’s Elite 150 category for the 10th consecutive year. This ranking recognizes leading solution providers that demonstrate innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services.

“Receiving this recognition from CRN for the 10th year in a row is exciting and solidifies our spot as one of the top MSPs in the U.S.," said Suzy Hays, executive vice president of C Spire. “Our managed services team is truly world-class and helps businesses navigate the growing complexities of IT solutions every day. That is customer inspired.”
