The MSP industry has gone through a massive transformation over the last decade. From mergers and acquisitions to the rise in private equity firms, this industry has seen it all. Not to forget, the birth of “the cloud” and the increasing cybersecurity risks.

Jim has been at the forefront witnessing these changes as the CEO of the Thrive Networks (an MSP acquired by Staples), the President of IndependenceIT (IIT), and as the founder of an MSP consultancy, Clarity Channel Advisors.

Currently, Jim serves as GM and Senior Vice President at Kaseya. He oversees the company’s global customer community and is responsible for partner development.
