We are proud to announce that our Co-Founder and Director Jamie Claret has been elected to the CompTIA UK Channel Community Executive Council. Jamie is already a member of the CompTIA Mentor Programme, helping other member businesses within the UK Channel Community who may be facing challenges in their business or need guidance on how to grow. Then, at the last EMEA Partner Conference in London in October 2017 he gave a delegate speech on why he should be elected to the Executive Council. At the end of February 2018, The Executive Committee responded confirming that he had been elected and that they were delighted to welcome him on board as one of their Executive Council Members for 2018.
CompTIA Communities are the foundation of the association’s initiatives, programs, education and research. These member-driven groups collaborate to advance specific technologies, business models, geographic territories and industry causes that are vital to the future of the IT industry. CompTIA Community members include IT professionals, vendors, distributors and thought leaders who work together on the issues and programs that will shape the future of the IT industry.
Communication, collaboration and coordination across all of CompTIA’s communities, as well as setting community strategy are the responsibilities of the Community Executive Boards. The CompTIA Community Executive Boards are led by an Executive Council, Chair and Vice Chair. All Executive Council members are elected by community members through annual voting.
As an Executive Council Member, Jamie will now be directly involved in helping to shape the UK CompTIA community and continue to boost its representation and status in the UK as one of the leading associative member bodies in the IT industry. Through being actively involved in initiatives, helping small business groups, as well monthly calls and partner and community conferences, Jamie is committed to the development of the CompTIA channel community in the UK;
“I am grateful to become one of the new CompTIA UK Community Executive Council Members for 2018. I aim to give members and the industry a voice, provide them with direction through development initiatives and ultimately help define the IT industry of tomorrow”, Jamie commented.
Estelle Johannes, Director of CompTIA Member Communities said, “We are really looking forward to Jamie joining the UK Community EC leadership team, his experience and insight in the industry will be invaluable to help us create a more successful, engaged and diverse community.”
