BOSTON – May 5, 2016 – Michael Amiri, Director of Dealer Services at Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, as well as Continuum’s CEO, Michael George, have been named to ENX Magazine’s The Difference Makers List, an annual celebration of key individuals making a difference in the document imaging industry. Difference makers represent every segment of the industry, from OEMs, to services, software and supplies providers, to industry analysts and pundits.

“Michael Amiri has developed and led the Office Equipment Dealer Program for Continuum for three years and has been relentless in his commitment to the channel and dealer success,” said Chris Ryne, Principal of Growth Achievement Partners (GAP), an internationally recognized consulting firm. “In addition to his direct support, he is a frequent participant and contributor within industry events and publications and freely shares his perspective and best practices to aid dealer transition. Michael’s efforts have resulted in the onboarding of more than a hundred successful office equipment dealers for inclusion into the Continuum partnership.” 

A 20-year veteran of the IT industry, Michael Amiri has built a team at Continuum that is dedicated to supporting the office equipment channel by maximizing efficiencies and profits with managed IT service offerings. Michael has worked tirelessly to assist office equipment dealers making the transition to managed IT services, and he utilizes many resources to share his knowledge and experience, including conducting must-see webinars.

With more than 25 years of leading software companies, Michael George has had much success since joining Continuum more than four years ago. Under his leadership, the company has delivered new products specifically for the IT channel, launched the Navigate by Continuum user conference that has sold out for two straight years, opened a European headquarters and new Boston headquarters and has recruited exceptional talent to his executive team and Board – all focused on the success of the channel. Michael also directed the establishment of the Continuum Veterans Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing financial support to local and national charities that focus on helping veterans find jobs in IT. The foundation has donated more than $150,000 since its founding in 2012.

“Michael George’s leadership has helped bring a whole new dimension to the managed network services (MNS) offerings and has made the transition a profitable path for dealers,” said Edward McLaughlin, CEO at Valderus. 

Jeff Dotzler, Director, GFConsulting Group, a division of Gordon Flesch Company, one of the largest independent providers of office technology solutions in the nation and key partner of Continuum for more than three years, was also named to the list.
