CRN’s second annual Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list recognizes the passion and commitment these individuals have shown in driving growth and innovation for the IT channel companies they represented over the past year.

After experiencing a merger in April 2021, Austin spearheaded the efforts to align company-wide resources, including incorporating the regional teams together administratively, developing a new service platform to better support employees, as well as connecting pieces of the new company communication and collaboration systems together. Austin constantly monitors better methods to support staff and ensure industry best practices, thoroughly researching and evaluating AI-based security management tools for possible implementation across the company.
