Erick Simpson’s January 2019 Business Transformation Newsletter

To New Beginnings...

I'm excited to announce the formation of my new consultancy at That's right - I'm ready to begin the next chapter in my career of working with IT business owners and their teams to build world-class, high-performing organizations.

I've enjoyed the last several decades as a leader, business partner and co-founder of several notable entities; one of the first pure-play MSP practices in the industry (acquired in 2007), and the first MSP-focused business transformation consulting, training and live and online event organization that built a channel of 30k partners (MSP University), and was subsequently rebranded as Solution Provider Community (SPC ) International.

As I turn the page in 2019, I'm looking forward to continuing to work more strategically and deliberately with business leaders, IT organizations, vendors and distributors. My focus is to continue to deliver the business transformation and channel growth strategies that I've developed and have resulted in tremendously success outcomes for my clients, tempered by an improved work/life balance philosophy :).

I encourage you to reach out to me to explore how I may be of help to you in reaching your business growth and transformation goals in 2019.
