Sterling, an industry-leading technology solutions provider, is proud to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has selected Sterling’s own Megan Moore, Director of Strategic Programs & Partner Alliances, and Patrick Fagen, Director of Pre-Sales Engineering, as recipients of the publication’s prestigious 2022 Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders award.
The third-annual list recognizes extraordinary individuals from across the channel who are key contributors to the growth and strategic direction of the companies for which they work. Undeniable trailblazers today, these individuals are likewise poised to be the visionaries of tomorrow, tirelessly leading and innovating within their respective spheres of influence.
This year, throughout the nation, a mere 62 individuals were chosen for the award. Of that group, the majority are rising-star executives, managers, and directors from a diverse array of integrators, VARs, MSPs, and other IT solution providers. All of the awardees are 40 years of age or younger.
As the Director of Strategic Programs & Partner Alliances for Sterling, Moore oversees the solution provider’s vast network of industry partnerships, ensuring the program is robust, profitable, and in close alignment with Sterling’s long-term corporate objectives. Fagen, meanwhile, directs a team of pre-sales engineers that works in tandem with the company’s sales staff to scope out solutions, interface with clients, and help enact the customers’ preferred methods of deployment. His leadership has played a pivotal role in not only building out the pre-sales department but also in orchestrating Sterling’s next iteration of technical capabilities.
“Both Megan and Patrick are leaders in every sense of the word,” says Tim McCabe, President of Sterling. “They possess an exceptional knack for both the macro and the micro in this industry, each of them leveraging a shrewd, forward-thinking perspective to drive change across every level of our organization. Their contributions cannot be overstated; with the two of them at the helm, the future indeed looks bright for the world of IT.”
The Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list will be featured in the December issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at www.crn.com/NextGenSPLeaders.
