BOSTON, Mass. –September 21, 2017 - Continuum, the exclusive provider of the only vertically integrated IT service delivery platform that enables MSPs to scale rapidly and profitably, today announced that its chief revenue officer, Robert Kocis, has been named to The Channel Company’s Top Midmarket IT Executives list. This annual list honors influential vendor and solution provider executives who have demonstrated an exceptionally strong commitment to the midmarket.

As shown in independent research from Service Leadership, Inc., Continuum’s commitment to a 100 percent channel exclusive business model, innovative IT management platform and the company’s extensive training and certification resources have enabled its small and mid-market enterprise managed service providers (MSPs) to grow their business and achieve greater profitability than other MSPs in the industry. Under Kocis’ stewardship, Continuum has continued to strengthen its industry leadership by executing channel-first strategies to enable its partners sell more effectively, including successfully implementing Continuum’s first Sales Academy in April 2017 and the company’s Social Selling program, a sales course designed to help midmarket MSPs optimize the sales process and unleash their sales potential.

“At Continuum, we’re dedicated to helping MSPs address the growing IT industry skills gap and increase their midmarket sales,” said Bob Kocis, Chief Revenue Officer at Continuum. “We’re able to do so by equipping them with the tools and resources required to expand their knowledge and benefit from our transformational service delivery model. I’m grateful for the recognition from The Channel Company for the work we’ve been doing here at Continuum.”

“The Channel Company and Midsize Enterprise Summit are proud to recognize these individuals and the companies they represent for their remarkable efforts to meet the unique IT needs of this fast-growing industry,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President of Event Content and Strategy, The Channel Company.  “The winners will be honored at this year’s Midsize Enterprise Summit Fall this month in San Antonio, Texas, the nation’s largest gathering of midmarket senior IT executives and the ideal venue in which to honor these deserving leaders. We congratulate each of the honorees and look forward to their continued success.”

The Top Midmarket IT Executives List will be announced at the 2017 Midsize Enterprise Summit Fall, to be held at the JW Marriott Hill Country in San Antonio, Texas, Sept. 17-19.  The executives will also be featured on CRN.com, a leading source for IT industry news.
