We continue to invest in our People, Partners, Products, and Performance to work in harmony. It is the true testament to our contribution to advancing the success of our Partners,” said Wensley. “We believe in creating the best products that move the needle, to identify, communicate, and action areas that drive positive outcomes for MSPs. ”

A veteran of the MSP industry, Giraldo helms ScalePad’s Partner Success organization. Over 15 years of owning and operating his own technology companies have developed Giraldo into a consummate IT professional and strategist. 

“I’m honored and privileged to be listed as a CRN Channel Chief.
