Ingram Micro Inc. has announced that Jason Bystrak, Executive Director, North America, Ingram Micro Cloud, has been named to ChannelPro-SMB's elite list of 20/20 Visionaries for 2015. The programme honours 20 of the top influencers and sought authorities from the vendor, analyst and consulting communities, in addition to 20 of the most industry-forward resellers and MSPs from the SMB partner community.
The selection process identified and vetted IT professionals who have not only delivered the best services and solutions to their SMB clients and channel partners, but have also helped drive advancement within the channel community with new industry ideas, commitment to continual improvement, and a demonstrated willingness to help others thrive in the market.
Since joining Ingram Micro in 1995, Bystrak has played a pivotal role in identifying and deploying innovative go-to-market strategies to enable and accelerate channel partner success, spur new business opportunities, and increase profitability. He is recognized as a leading authority on profiting from cloud solutions and actively anticipating the ever-changing cloud market landscape.
"I'm honoured to be included with such a prestigious group of channel professionals and industry leaders," said Bystrak. "There's never been a better time to be part of the cloud services industry and I look forward to continue helping Ingram Micro channel partners grow and transform their business in the cloud."
To develop the 20/20 Visionaries for 2015, the editors of ChannelPro-SMB looked to the channel players and channel pros they have spoken with, listened to and sat with face-to-face over the past year to compile a comprehensive list of possible honourees.
"Many of the names on our list of 2015 20/20 Visionaries are well known in the SMB channel, and others are less so," said Cecilia Galvin, executive editor, ChannelPro-SMB. "What they have in common, though, is a deep understanding of where the industry is headed and how to thrive in it."
"We're extremely proud that Jason has earned this recognition from ChannelPro-SMB," said Renee Bergeron, Vice President Cloud Computing, Ingram Micro Cloud. "Over the years, Jason has worked hard to help grow and refine our cloud business, and this recognition is a testament to his passion and dedication towards recognizing and meeting the needs of our channel."
