Founder and President, TECHmarc Labs, U.S.
The IT industry moves fast and that’s what I love most about my job. Not only do the physical products and services change rapidly, but the way we market and sell them is going through explosive change as well. I’m excited every day.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you shouldn’t consider a career in IT because you don’t have a technical degree. If you have a passion for the industry, a constant desire to learn new things and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and work with others to get the job done, you will go far.
Technology isn’t about the physical product or a bulleted list of features. It’s about helping people and companies solve problems, overcome challenges, and improve their lives every day.
My father worked for Xerox Corporation, a pioneer in computer technology, so I guess IT was in my blood. In 1989, I graduated from college with a degree in politics and a minor in information systems science.
My first job was in international marketing at Microcom, a leading modem provider of the 1980s. And the rest is history. I have marketed modems, semiconductors, software, SaaS and cloud products and services over the last 25 years for Fortune 500 companies and small start-ups.
Today, as the founder and president of TECHmarc Labs, I work with IT vendors, distributors, VARs, MSPs and other technology providers to help them build indirect sales channels — reselling and marketing their products and services to channel partners around the world.
