Kristian Wright, Managing Director of Inbay, a provider of high-quality white label NOC and technical service desk support to managed service providers (MSPs), has been elected as Chair of CompTIA’s UK Channel Community (UKCC) Executive Council. This prestigious appointment strengthens Kristian’s ties with CompTIA, the world’s largest IT trade association and a leading voice in the industry.
CompTIA invests substantially in IT education, certification, advocacy and philanthropy, helping IT companies worldwide to become more successful – from the largest vendors through to small, niche businesses and IT professionals.
A member of CompTIA since 2009, Kristian was voted on to the Executive Council in January; an appointment that was followed in May by his election as Vice-Chair.
As Chair, Kristian will be responsible for leading and building consensus within the Community to meet its core objectives. He will also be an active member of the CompTIA Communities Executive Board which is responsible for the oversight and coordination of all member community activities.
“I am delighted with my new appointment. As MD of a small business, I am very aware of the challenges faced by the UK Channel community. Like many of them, Inbay has benefitted from the wide range of resources on offer from CompTIA – not just technical certifications but help with marketing and industry insight too. As Chair of CompTIA’s UKCC Executive Council, I will work with my colleagues to ensure that UK Channel initiatives result in practical, usable guidance for all our members. I look forward to meeting members at the UK Channel Community Meeting to be held on 23 and 24 February 2016.”
CompTIA’s Director Member Communities, Estelle Johannes, comments:
”We are looking forward to welcoming Kristian Wright as the Executive Council Chair for 2016.Whilst in the role he will be instrumental in leading the UK Community. Kristian has the right skills, enthusiasm and attitude to take on the reins and fill the big shoes of our departing Chair Mark Williams who has fulfilled his two year term.”
