    This isn’t the first time that Marco has been recognised by CRN, as he was named as among their “100 People You Don't Know, But Should” in 2012.

    With more than 10 years’ experience in the channel industry, Marco has made a big impact since joining AVG little over a year ago. He now leads a team that handles over 4,500 managed service providers (MSP) to help them get the most out of their technology.

    As part of his nomination, Marco interviewed with CRN where they asked him to talk about his highlights since joining AVG.


    The Power of Partnerships

    Marco is a firm believer in the power of partnerships and has overseen more than 1,000 new partners join AVG since he arrived.

    This is in no small way down to AVG’s Partner Enablement Program which helps MSPs to evolve from a reactive business model where they are responding to incidents as and when they occur to being an aware, proactive and preventative system.


    The best tools for the job

    Marco also highlighted the arrival of AVG Managed Workplace 9.0 which shows that innovation and technology are at the heart of AVG Business.

    AVG Businesses’ insistence on providing powerful, cutting edge and easy to use remote management tools means that our partners can focus on what matters to them – running their business.


    Rewarding excellence

    2014 was a busy year for Marco, attending over 50 industry events. These included the inaugural AVG Business Partner Summit in Phoenix, Arizona which was attended by more than 200 partners from around the world.

    They also included the first ever AVG Awards given to outstanding partners across the globe.


    Building for the future

    Looking into 2015, Marco hopes to champion partner satisfaction by making it one his key priorities for the year.
