CRN Highlights the Rising Stars of the IT Channel
December 10th 2020 – Greeley, CO – Connecting Point is pleased to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Scott Warner, President & CEO, as one of its Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders for 2020. This list recognizes exceptional individuals who have made significant contributions in driving growth and strategic direction over the last year to the channel companies they work for, including integrators, VARs, MSPs and other solution provider organizations.
The inaugural Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list includes rising star executives, directors and managers, 40 years of age or younger, who are poised to be tomorrow’s channel leaders.
“CRN’s Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list honors IT channel up-and-comers who are blazing a path forward to the next era of the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate the individuals on this year’s list for bringing fresh ideas and new ways of delivering success that are setting the pace for the rest of the channel.”
As President & CEO, Scott Warner is following in the footsteps of his father, Ted Warner, who was the Founder of Connecting Point and President/CEO for 36 years from 1982-2018 before selling the business to Scott and his brother Andy Warner (now CFO/COO of the company) at the end of 2018. As a second-generation family business, the Warner brothers will seek to continue the legacy of Connecting Point as a pioneer in the Managed IT & Security Services space.
“Scott is truly deserving of this nomination” said Ted Warner. “He learned how to run an MSP from the ground up and quickly learned the value of building partnerships in the community and across the industry. Scott began his career on the sales side of the business. That time provided him valuable insights into the needs of the SMB space as well as the business acumen to tailor solutions to provide competitive advantages for our clients. Through Scott and Andy’s leadership, the Connecting Point team has significantly enhanced our managed services model, architected a robust advanced IT security practice, and continually execute on their roadmap of aggressive and sophisticated business initiatives that are moving Connecting Point, and its clients, along the technology journey while positioning the company for future growth and prosperity.”
The Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list will be featured in the December issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at www.crn.com/NextGenSPLeaders.
