Shonholz is one of 50 individuals recognized as a thought leader who will impact the direction of the IT and communications indirect sales channel in 2023. He is profiled in a gallery on the Channel Futures website and the 2023 Channel Influencers digital issue, available now for download. The Channel Influencers will be honored at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, May 1-4, at the Venetian Resort & Expo in Las Vegas.
Since 2018, the Channel Futures Channel Influencer Awards have recognized individuals expected to have a significant impact on the IT and communications indirect sales channel in the year ahead. These individuals are channel leaders, dedicated to the channel and working to keep it moving forward.
Leveraging his rich experience in the channel, Shonholz leads ARG’s three-pronged growth strategy to grow organically, diversify the segments and verticals it serves, and grow inorganically through strategic acquisitions and investment in the top 1% of the channel.
ARG CEO, Greg Praske commented, “Since day one, ARG has prioritized making IT effortless and cost-effective for its customers. Mike is accelerating our growth by leveraging our established platform, people, and deliverables to greater effect and building ARG’s brand nationally.”
“Our Channel Influencers share a number of common traits, chief among them being their dedication to the channel,” said Bobby DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels Group. “In our conversations with this year’s honorees, they all cited the importance of sharing information and helping. They consider ‘influence’ to be an opportunity to help others.”
“Our editors are in the trenches, so they know who’s truly making waves and influencing the channel,” said Craig Galbraith, editorial director for Channel Futures. “We are once again proud to highlight the best and brightest Channel Influencers — those who lead with actions and words that set an example for the entire industry.”
There are two problems in the IT market; the first is the overwhelming choice, and the second is the pace of change. Companies are afraid of making the wrong choice, or not choosing the latest technology because they are simply not aware of it. For over 30 years, ARG has helped over 4,000 companies make the right choice from thousands of options and bleeding-edge new products. We call it IT Clarity – our clients call it brilliant.
